Yes, once again it is our annual Valentine’s dinner…
The usual were in attendance…..
Pete and Lou
Bonnie and Dawn
Dawn (again…she’s not a twin…and that’s a good thing!) and Mom and Dad
Lou was very sweet and sent a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers..
I TOTALLY forgot to take pictures of the meal but here is the menu:
Rack of Lamb (SOOOOOO good)
Roasted Asparagus (my favorite)
Salad of my own creation: Tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and mozzarella cheese with Olive oil/basil/Italian dressing (was very good)
Cheese Biscuits (just like the ones at red lobster)
Plain old Mashed Potatoes made with red potatoes with the skins on and extra butter (great comfort food!)
I did, however, remember to take pics of the dessert as I was making it…
Make a brownie-like cake.. (with 1 whole cup of cocoa!!!)
yes, those are peanut butter cups and yes, you use all 10 of them!!!!!!
Elroy was supervising (and no… my house is not on fire…it’s my humidifier)
Out of the oven…
put peanut butter between the layers…with peanut butter frosting and more chocolate on top and you have death by chocolate! It was wonderful!
Elroy was trying to eat the flowers!
Elroy entertained us after dinner playing fetch….
Dawn spent the night so we had breakfast the next morning….
Short Bacon… (ask Dawn!) and blueberry pancakes… (and you can see last’s night’s dessert in the background)
I’m not going to worry about counting the millions of calories I’ve enhaled this weekend….It’s Valentine’s day and they don’t count!
Thanks Pete, for the Valentine Heart filled with Hershey’s Kisses….and Bonnie for the DELICIOUS chocolate chip cookie and Dawn for the beautiful red mug and hot cocoa mix.
It was a wonderful evening with friends and family…..Thank you for coming!
p.s. I’m not playing favorites with Elroy…Goldie likes to hide when I have company….she’s shy!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
