I got all my son's Valentine's cards ready yesterday:
And we went to his school party today. I have such fun memories of school parties...handing out & receiving cards. It's fun to relive that through my own kids.
We had a very nice family dinner tonight with inlaws and my mom. My contributions to the meal included this delicious Strawberry Spinach Salad:
I thought it was kind of Valentine-y with red heart shaped strawberries :)
I also made this yummy Roasted Asparagus:
I wish I'd had enough for a double batch of that, it was so good.
And for dessert I made another Cranberry Lime Galette:
I also made a pan of brownies since I wasn't sure the pie was enough for nine. I used a boxed mix of milk chocolate brownies. I subbed 1/4 c of the oil with a couple tablespoons of peanut butter, then sprinkled crushed up heath bars on top. Very yummy, wish I had a pic but I didn't think they'd be blog-worthy...oh yes indeed they were!
I'm counting my blessings this Valentine's Day. I am indeed blessed way beyond what I deserve. My daughter tells me about 10 times a day..."I'm so glad I have a Mommy like you!" and "I just love my family!" You can't get much sweeter than that.
