After making sure I told John I didn't want anything for Valentine's Day, I was awakened by a box of peanut butter truffle filled "turtles" from V Chocolates being placed on my chest. It was then that I realized I had done nothing and hadn't planned anything for my family for Valentine's Day. Thinking of what I could do that would mean the most, I decided to give them my time and cook a great meal for dinner. And it was yummy!
We enjoyed smashed restaurant-style potatoes, fried steak, salad, lemonade and chocolate mousse from scratch. It took three hours to put it all together and was eaten in about 15 minutes. It really was delicious. I even cleaned up the mess afterwards.
Happy Valentine's Day, family!
