the day my kitchen looked like this...
february 16. (must have been another snow day.)
oh. there's more.i normally make a new meal on valentine's day.
the 14th was on a sunday this year.
this year valentine weekend was spent doing some important things. (being with a dear friend in the hospital and visiting with a guest at our house.)
so the 'tradition' of a new meal was put off until it could be had.
which happened to be two days later, on the 16th.
we started off with a recipe from my new cookbook :)
(thanks mom and dad!)
chicken spaghetti. yummmm.
and another recipe from the same cookbook :)
and then we served our 'traditional' red velvet cake.
(it was out of the box this year, only because i had already bought the box... but next year it will be from scratch as there is a recipe for it in my new cookbook :)
dave and i still have not had our official valentine's date night of a movie and a meal other than fast food :) we will get to it. its nice to spread out the love...
