Happy Valentine's Day!

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Wasn't planning or hoping for anything special. My husband, the chef, would be working again! The kids were with grandma anad grandpa, at the movies and I was home with the pup. I decided to take a trip to the store to get ingredients to make these cute pastry hearts that I found on a great blog created by Diane.

While at the store, I decided to rent Julie and Julia. I figured it was a good time to watch something I wanted to watch, since no one would be home. Then my cell phone rang. It was the chef! He was on his way home at 5:30!! He had to pass the store, so I told him to meet me there to get something for dinner. There was a special on two steaks and two lobster tails for $9.99! The chef grabbed a few extra ingredients and we met back at home. He whipped up a gourmet dinner, poured two glasses of wine and we watched Julie and Julia. As you can see, the chef didn't make it through the whole movie. But the attempt was appreciated and the dinner was superb!

Well, the chef is back at work this morning (since 5:30AM). I spent the morning with my other two Valentine's and made us heart shaped pancakes!

I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day! Go with the flow and enjoy!
