I think a long weekend, particularly one that includes Valentine’s Day, deserves a recap. We didn’t go anywhere but it was full of love and some really good food.
Love showed up on Friday afternoon when Jackie arrived. We watched Cars, his favorite movie, and we baked cinnamon muffins. He looks so much like his mama these days it sort of blows my mind.
Saturday was a great day for relaxing with books and knitting and just hanging out at home. We got sushi for dinner as a special treat for Valentine’s Day. It was delicious and our local sushi restaurant now offers online ordering so I don’t even have to talk to anyone. I call that a win!
I spent Sunday in the kitchen making cream puffs. It’s a long standing family tradition and even though it took all afternoon it was worth it for the smile it brings to Dale’s face.
This photo is also a great illustration of why I say plaid is his favorite color.
I also made spaghetti and meatballs for the first time. This is on my 21 in 2021 list and it’s one of Dale’s favorite meals and it’s red so . . . Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect time to give it a whirl. It was easy and I have no idea why I was so intimidated by the process. I used this recipe from Food Network and I will definitely be making them again.
Monday, much like Saturday, was all about relaxing. More reading. More knitting. More television together in the evening. It was lovely.
I hope you had a great weekend, too, full of all the things you love.
