XOXO Valentine

Well, I did it again. I let another holiday sneak up behind me and startle me to death. AHHHHH!! Who let you in? Thankfully, I have an arsenal of Valentine favorites to choose from. I'm going for a six AM run to the grocery store and then I'll be all set. I'm thinking about these XOXO cupcakes to share with friends. Easy.For our dinner, we'll start off with a little crostini with homeade ricotta and roasted red pepper hearts.

Then some red and white pasta. I always have everything I need on hand for this one. I can't think of anything more satisfying on a cold, February night.
Maybe some heart shaped brownies for dessert. Am I going a little too crazy? Maybe we'll just go with the XO cupcakes. And I almost forgot. How's about some a short stack of buttermilk pancakes with strawberry jam and maple syrup.
Good eats and Happy Love Day to all!
Did anybody get a candy gram for Valentine's Day? I got one. It was from my clever girl. She attached a sticky note to a lollipop and wrote Happy Valentine's Day Prudy! Love, Ronnie, Louis, Dan and Daddy. This time I didn't throw the note in the trash.
Next Up: Cheddar Cheese Fondue

It all looks delicious! :) We have a red and pink menu (super simple) planned too.

Sailor is such a sweetie. She cracks me up! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Prudelicious, Happy V-Day! I can't believe I am posting a comment before the Japanese Redneck. I love all of your goodies. The red & white pasta looks to die for, but I can think of a thing or two that would be more satisfying.....your brownies. I try to surprise my girlfriend once a year. Tomorrow will be no different, I'm thinking of not getting her anything. Do you think she will be surprised?
Can't wait for the fondue. Say hi to Maybelline......

We just decided to eat out tonight, but then you post all this deliciousness and now I don't know what to do.

I love your candy gram from Sailor, that is a crack up. I didn't get a candy gram, BUT Annabelle came home with one that said,"From a sixth grader." Needless to say, her father and I are somewhat alarmed.

The sneaky holidays are the ones that happen on Monday. If it happens on a Monday, I'm not going to do it justice; it's a given.

The presents should be such that can serve their needs the best way. Freestyle Rapping For Beginners require dedication and patience. Cheap Audio Head Phones Best Price. Sadly, it has become the exception.
