Love is in the air…

Superbowl? I got nothing.  I was cheering for the Seahawks, simply because Tom Brady wasn’t playing in his underwear. I’m kidding!  Of course I’m kidding 😉  Autumn and I had our party. We decorated with Seahawk colors. Filled our table with appetizers. Katy was decent. Lenny had too many clothes on. Missy Elliot was awesome! Never does the team we are rooting for ever win the game. This was the first year I was like “Yes!!!  They have it in the bag.” Oh. My. Gawd.  Sorry true Seattle fans.  Worst. Play. Ever.  But hey, our food was as awesome!!

Now we are on to the next event. Sort of frustrating how we live our lives holiday to holiday. Wait! Maybe that’s just me. And Wegmans. So, even though Valentine’s Day merchandise has been out since December 26th, I’m now just getting around to thinking about it. I guess I’m sort of indifferent to Valentine’s day.  Spread the love all year round I say! I was helping a friend with her daughter’s 5th birthday party this weekend.  It was a Frozen theme, and we set up a hot chocolate bar.  I was thinking that would be a great idea for Valentine’s day if you have all the kids. I wish I had taken a picture. We started with crock pot hot chocolate. Then had marshmallows, chocolate chips, Red Hots, crushed Andes candies and whipped cream to mix in. OOO maybe I will do that this weekend.

Personally, I refuse, absolutely refuse to eat out on Valentine’s Day!  Restaurants are CRAZY!! I just assume stay in, stay cozy and make something delicious.  I will see what I can do about getting some recipes for two out in the next 11 days. I will start…now! Naturally, I’m going to start with dessert.  I’ve been making this recipe for years. It’s so rich, and delicious.  It says love in about 5,000 calories. Make plans with your loved ones to go to the gym on the 15th.  Nothing says love like sweat! But this dessert is totally worth it!
