Thank you for your Valentine wishes and hugs! We had a really nice day. Anita, Grace copied down some of her favorite love poems for me and I had a good supply of Hershey's caramel kisses! Like Flora, I'll have to go on chocolate restriction for the next few days. ;0)
I had little gift bags waiting for the girls and Benjamin when they woke up. Nailpolish, stickers and candy for Grace and Emily and a Yo-Yo, stickers and candy for Benjamin.
I found this mini trifle dish at Target and filled it with dried roses from a previous Valentine's Day.
We had cherry turnovers for breakfast.
Here are my little Valentines.....
Red and white were the colors for our table. Grace found some Cranberry Italian Creme Soda at the store.
I made Phillip a Spaghetti and Meatball dinner. I hardly ever make them so it was a sign of true love! ;0)
We had Cheesecake Pie for dessert. I have been using this recipe for more than 10 years. It is very easy to make!
1 (9-inch) baked graham cracker crust
1 (8-ounce) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In large mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into prepared pie crust. Chill 3 hours or until set.
We topped ours with a spoon of raspberry jam or a little chocolate sauce.
I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day with the ones you love.
