This year, for Valentine's Day, I had the best date of all time. Lil' K and I decided to spend the evening together cooking up a meal, and spending quality "sister" time.
I picked K up at her friend's house after work, and she hopped in the car and handed me a rose "I got a Valentine for my Valentine". I love that girl!
The menu for the evening was: Lemon Zest Spinach:
Home made beef meatballs (with a tomato/horseradish dipping sauce on the side) and sweet potato fries:
My Funny Valentine getting ready to eat:
How's that for a beautifully colorful (and healthy) meal:
And dessert? Oh...dessert was red velvet cupcakes, made from scratch:
We had a blast making our dinner, but I have to tell you, after making those cupcakes, I've decided I need to get myself one of those fancy mixers, because mixing up the batter (and icing) for these cupcakes was quite the challenge for both K and I.
Which is why I'm taking the opportunity to use this post to ask you:
have you seen the Kenmore Elite Stand Mixer giveaway on DearCrissy.com this week?
DearCrissy.com is giving away one of those fancy mixers, and I WANT IT!!!
Anyway, cooking with K is becoming my favorite night of the week...I can't wait till next week...
