I woke up Valentine’s Day morning to these.
Scott clearly doesn’t read my blog because I had mentioned that I’d rather spend money on shoes (or just about anything else) than on flowers. They die so fast and they seem so frivolous.
But after having these beauties in the house, I am not complaining.
And I can’t complain about my day, either.
It started off in the kitchen with a stick and a half of melted butter because I made a batch of these.
Ralph’s store-brand butter is on the left and Kerrygold on the right. It’s interesting to note how yellow the Kerrygold is and how pale the Ralph’s brand is in a side by side comparison. Maybe that has to do with grass-fed cows or that Kerrygold says their butter has a higher butterfat percentage.
I need to do a side-by-side comparison with flour and compare store-brand flour and King Arthur flour.
A batch of White Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies would be a good starting place I think for a
In addition to melted butter on Valentine’s Day, there was melted chocolate.
I love how smoothly, easily, and effortlessly this chocolate melts.
It’s easier to make Vanilla Cake Batter Truffles (No-Bake) when the chocolate melts smoothly. Dipping the little balls into their bathtub is much easier when the consistency of the bathwater is just right.
I also made Scott something special for dinner to surprise him. It wasn’t fancy, but it was special, for him.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and he loves eggs. I made something similar to the Spinach and Red Pepper Frittata but even more up his alley because it involved potatoes.
Did you have a Happy Valentine’s Day? Any surprises?
Did you celebrate the day in any way or was is just another day and business as usual?
