I think there is a chance that, I kind-of-sort of quite possibly might be in LOVE…with Valentines Day! Now I understand that some people may believe that it comes with a barrage of store bought Hallmark cards and pressure to make plans for a romantic evening however this holiday is a great occasion to think about those you LOVE. Why do you LOVE them? What does it mean to be LOVED? Most importantly for me…how do I show this LOVE? Well…I like to indulge in some sweets and treats and share those with my loved ones.
Start your morning off with saying, “I love you” with…
A little Valentine Egg Sandwich
Butter one side of the bread. Separate the egg white and yolk into two bowls. Place the sandwich, buttered-side down, in a pan over medium heat and grill until golden brown then remove. Butter the uncooked side of the sandwich. Using a heart cookie cutter cut out the center. Return both pieces of the sandwich to the pan. Add egg white to fill the bottom of the empty center then slip the egg yolk into the center. Cover the pan and let everything cook for a couple minutes. Once the egg appears to be cooked, immediately remove the sandwich and voila!
Have you tried Pom Juice? If not…then this is a great way to introduce it into your life! Who doesn’t love a little Pomosa!
2 ounces of chilled Pomegrante juice
For each drink, pour about 2 ounces of chilled Pom juice into a champagne flute and fill rest of the way up with chilled champagne.
How about some sweets for your sweethearts!
Strawberry wafer cookies
Melt your candy melts, dip the wafer cookie into the melted candy, then lay your cookies on parchment paper and add your sweet sprinkles. Chill in fridge for about 30 minutes.
