Happy Valentines Day

I didn't have a subbing job today, so I spent the day planning a nice surprise Valentine dinner for Sgt. Dinner didn't turn out exactly as I planned it. I was hoping to have dinner done by the time Sgt got home from work, but because I underestimated the amount of time it would take to make the beet ravioli we had a late dinner and Sgt helped make it. We had a great time cooking together and eating in the "love" dining room by candlelight and wood stove! I didn't grab my camera till the end of the meal....and OMG what an absolutely delicious meal it was! I'm sorry I didn't get pictures of the meal, but I will leave you with links to the recipes at the end of the post!

This is the first time I've celebrated Valentines Day in many years. I'm not a big VD kinda gal. It's not that I have anything against love and hearts or flowers. It's just that since my birthday is 4 days before VD, I usually get my fill of love, hearts, and flowers on that day! :) I figured since this is our first Valentines Day as a married couple, I would do something romantic for Sgt. I totally impressed him with my crafty ways! :)

Happy Valentines Day!

  2. We missed your birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY first of all.

    Such lovely pics, we're not big on Valentines Day either, not cos there's not lots of love here, just cos we're not big on it. The dinner sounds delicious, yum!
