While I don’t think all the hoopla of Valentine’s Day is always necessary, it is a good day to give a few extra hugs and kisses and share some good food together. I was thinking ahead today that Valentine’s Day on Tuesday this upcoming week is going to be hectic because of Hunter’s local Science Fair. We’ll have to share our Valentine’s family meal probably on Wednesday instead together.
What to make to please a family of kids ages 2, 4 and 14 along with steak loving husband?
Sweet tooth ideas first. We discovered our love for Valentine’s Cake Pops last year. Auntie Lori made them and sent them to us. If you don’t know how to make cake balls or cake pops, Bakerella can teach you how.
Last year for a new dessert at Valentine’s Day, I made Almost Famous Chocolate Molten Cake from a Food Network recipe. I am going to make it again this year as a special treat for my sweet tooth chocolate loving family.
I learned I could win my husband’s heart quite easily with a properly grilled steak. Grilling up ribeyes will be on the menu.
Miss A is honing her cooking skills today in the kitchen with my mom. I have the weekend off from cooking. My mom is cooking for us! My parents are here for our boy’s basketball team district tournament. Today my mom made a feast of Spanish Steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, cole slaw and a platter of cakes and cookies. Nana and Grandpa Eldon, my husband’s parents and my brother Robbie joined us. Tonight we’ll all be at the game cheering on our Mustangs in the 3rd place game. We lost a hard game last night to the top team in the district and are hoping for a win tonight!
