this was our v-day weekend ’15! my parents gifted me with a Sur La Table gift card for Christmas and i finally put it to use by signing Sonny and i up for a couples cooking class. a tasty, fun, night. seriously! if you’ve never done one, do one then! we were on the wait list and got in because another couple canceled. so V-Day eve we made and devoured:
Spinach Salad with Warm Sherry Vinaigrette
we all came together to make a ‘mock’ dessert. they just wanted us to go through the actual steps should we make it at home. they had plenty of pre-made pots de creme ready for us in the fridge since it has to chill in there for while ahead of time.
on Valentine’s Day, we ‘celebrated’ as a fam.
Chiso and i decorated some strawberries after i taught boot camp earlier that morning.
we used a 25 cent squeeze bottle for the melted chocolate and plenty of sprinkles! it’s the same bottle i use to freestyle his pancake shapes on the griddle. more inexpensive toddler entertainment!
then i got the boys ready so that we could go grab some dinner. one sock already gone and we hadn’t even left the house yet! i received a few compliments on my blouse while we were out lol- it’s actually a dress that i tucked into my pants from Zara.
V-Day was on saturday so most restaurants were crazy full! we tried to go to Benihana’s with no reservation… HA! that bombed so we ended up at Whole Foods Market which had something for all of us. Chiso suggested we have a picnic, so we went home and had one while watching the All Star Festivities.
here’s my foooood: chicken, potatoes, mushrooms, salad, more chicken, veggies, blah, blah, blah and water.
seriously…why do we even buy toys? paper bags, water bottles, cardboard boxes, pots and pans…that’s all they need.
did you stay in or go out for V – Day this year?
