As you know, Valentine’s Day was this week, a holiday centered on being sweet and giving sweets to your sweetie. We thought we’d let you know how we celebrated.
When I came home from work yesterday, Ed had this sitting out for me.
Daffodils picked from the yard, a bottle of wine, and a sweet card. He also is going to clean out and wash my car for me (yes!). All such sweet and thoughtful gifts. Oh, and he cooked dinner for the two of us. He made a delicious vegetable lasagna and a fresh loaf of bread. It had tons of spinach, mushrooms, and broccoli (and cheese, tomato sauce, and noodles) in it. Yummy for sure.
Ed made dinner for me, and I made dessert for him. Bourbon chocolate cupcakes to be exact.
Because we didn’t have any bourbon proper in the house, I had to choose between Irish whiskey and Southern Comfort. I went for the Southern Comfort, and they turned out amazing. I had some red sugar crystals left over from Christmastime, and they gave just the sparkle. You can get the recipe at Mess of Greens, a great blog about southern food.
Ed’s gift hasn’t arrived yet (even though it shipped well over a week ago!), but he knows what it is. I printed him out a tiny version and stuck it in his card. He’ll be receiving a periodic table of heavy metal bands.
Instead of the real elements we learned about in chemistry, this is a chart (categorized by genre, I might add) of 303 heavy metal bands. And the chart is in the shape of the standard heavy metal hand signal–devil horns. I think he’s pretty excited about it.
So there you have it, our Valentine’s Day. I got wine and a car cleaning. Ed got a print, which we’ll frame and hang in the den/paneling room as we continue to fill our walls in there. And we both got food.
Other than the fact that Mississippi State lost to LSU in basketball (*$%#$*#@!), it was a perfect day.
How did you spend Valentine’s Day? Did you make goodies for your sweetie? Or did you curse the day with loud metal music and anger? Whatever you did, I hope you got some good sweets like those delicious bourbon cupcakes!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Y’all!
