I hope everyone had a great Valentine weekend!
Friday night - my cooking club friends-
got together and we made dinner for our valentines.
Anjeny took pictures...
the meal was DE-LISH!
So my duties were: buy steaks, prepare our specialty drink and dessert.
Anjeny - made appetizers, and a side dish of fried zucchini
Isabel- was in charge of cooking the steaks in some Argentinian way and some yummy rice side dish.
It was so much fun! Isabel and her husband ended up not coming- she had prepared her portion of the meal.. but her husband called on his way home from work/school and told her he had gotten Jon Bonjovi tickets!!! She felt horrible on skipping out on us... I told her no sweat (especially since she was still bringing her food over-- I don't know how to make Argentinian Steaks!!) I told her.. if it were professional hockey tickets... we would have done the same thing!
So it turned out to be just Anjeny & Husband and Me & My husband.
It was so much fun! Very relaxing. (Kids were out of the house- our 4 year old was being watched by Anjeny's daughter.)
It was funny yesterday- the college boys in our home brought their girls over. The boys had bought their girl friends earrings.
The girl friends asked me what I got for Valentines day and I said,
"oh.. I'm still waiting for my earrings.... but if I don't get them today...
It's okay... I'll just get them tomorrow when I'm in town.... I know how much my husband likes to spend on me." :0)
My husband cringed. I didn't see it-- but I heard him in our eating area give a low groan...
I admit- was being a brat.
But I think it is good for these girls to see... the difference between "COURTSHIP" and what it's like when you've been married 14 years.
I might have gotten sentimental and emotionally bent out of shape when we were married one of two years... but now... it's not a big deal. We show each other every day we love each other.... I don't get wrapped up on holidays.. expecting special gifts.
The Specialty drink was a Lime Slushy... so yummy.
3 cups pineapple sherbet, 1/3 cup lime concentrate , 3 cups milk... blended together...
It is so refreshing!
Dessert - was brownies (cut out with a heart cookie cutter) with ice cream and drizzled chocolate sauce.
