Valentime


Happy, Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

I made these festive truffles for my friends & family. It’s a shame I can’t share them with you all as well.

I couldn’t help but make a list of the things I most hate about Valentine’s day:

  • People who send flowers to their significant others at work or school (no one needs to see that sh!+)
  • For that matter, PDAs (get a room)
  • Cut flowers -- instead buy your love a plant s/he can cherish for YEARS to come
  • Sappy “journey pendants” and miscellaneous other romantic themed jewelry
  • And last, but by no means least, Valentine’s Day menus at restaurants

Hey, they don’t call me jaded for nothing.

What I WILL endorse is a romantic dinner at home with candles, your mutually favorite CDs, perhaps a bottle of wine or champagne, etc. . . . oh and don’t forget the chocolates!

Thanks Jade, now I'm craving sugar. Looks delish!

I would add to your list Hallmark for the most impersonal words of endearment.

Hey, if you really want to share those delightful truffles, the US Postal System has pretty good rates....

Wishing you a VD sans "journey pendants." :)

Looks wonderful!

Happy Valetines day! Prince Charming gave me a rose that plays, "Wild Thing" to make me smile. I loved it! And it will never die!

Thank you, Jeff, I don't see how I could have forgotten the pre-packaged sentiments of Hallmark. Perhaps because, for the most part, I don't give or recieve dead tree greetings. Consider it added to my list!

Ah, Susan, you bring up a good point. Though I've been skeptical about mailing food since we endured all those Anthrax scares. And thank you for the V Day wishes. My husband was very sweet and bought me a CD that I really, really wanted, but had only just discovered. I hope you were given something of great beauty or divine flavor to make your day special as well!

And Twisted Cinderella, what a great name. Something tells me that your "Wild Thing" rose was a very fitting gift. I'm glad you've found a romantic Prince Charming. Hang on to that one!
