Love Feast...

Apparently the way to a mans heart is though his stomach...or so I've been told.  It must be true because I made Mike filet mignon "Oscar Style" on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and he hasn't stopped smiling.  I'm not sure if it was really that great or if he's just easy to please.  
OK...I'm going to stop being modest it was fabulous!!!  Who knew, my mom was right all these years.  You'd think I would have paid attention to excited he'd get when I'd cook something special.  Oh who am I kidding...he gets excited when I cook anything.  If only I would have realized the POWER of this cooking/love connection sooner.  Who knows what kind of projects I could of weaseled out of him by now.  I'm going to have to experiment with this know for the sake of science.

I don't know if it's the sugar high speaking but Valentines day is really delicious!  I hope you're enjoying your special someones today!

Valentines Day is approaching and I'm not ready.  The last few weeks have been busy.  Between church stuff and helping with lots of extra after school home work...poor Thomas he's preparing for the FCATS (boooooo!)  I'm behind on my plans for the day of LOVE!  We usually make sour cream cut out cookies that get frosted.  They are delicious and remind me of the cookies that someones mom brought to the valentines party at school.  I loved the colorful cards and candy...but my favorite memory hands down has been that yummy homemade hart shaped cookie that seemed to show up year after year.  This is one tradition that no mater how busy I get, we won't be skipping.  And then there is the family valentines meal...that I'll cook.  I'm going to try something fancy...if time doesn't get away from me again.

At least my pot rack feels like one giant Valentine card that says "I LOVE YOU" to the ones I love most!  Wish me luck on the fancy meal...any suggestions?
