No doubt most of you are slaving away finishing up your valentines and sugar cookies for the school parties and the chocolate treats for your sweet hearts.
What a blessing if you have someone that you can bestow some loving on.
Yesterday I made some fresh Callebaut Chocolate bark with nuts and dried fruit.
I also made a pretty scrumptious looking chocolate cake with layers of chocolate mousse, chocolate buttercream, covered with chocolate ganache now mellowing in the refrigerator
for the Valentine social we are having with our care group.
We've often wondered over the years. . .how our marriage would have been different if we hadn't found a group of friends from our church to form couple friendships with.
They have been a source of encouragement and accountability for us.
We've enjoyed having couples over for Valentine special dinners around the 14th of February
With winter dragging on it's a perfect excuse to have a party.
Yesterday I made a pot of Spaghetti Sauce that though tedious and lengthy in it's instructions, gives me great satisfaction in the wonderful aroma it creates. It's called Anthony's Pasta Sauce and I found it on the web..
Croutons from thin slices of baguettes buttered with garlic butter were slow toasted in the oven for the Caesar Salad.
I started the no knead multigrain bread yesterday and I'll bake it this afternoon.
Find this recipe under my recipe/bread label.
This afternoon I'll set the table with my china and give the house a bit of a cleaning.
I love to do this party. . .I don't know why ..
but I do.
That is what makes my Valentines Day the most special.
I have my pedometer on .. .
Have a wonderful day my friends.
