Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long. Again, life has caught up with me.

Here are some pictures from Valentine’s Day. Princess took Rice Krispie treats to school for her friends. The teachers got Cake Sandwich Cookies with cream cheese filling.

I colored the marshmallows with red food coloring. One batch a really pale pink and the other batch a darker pink.

Each child’s bag contained 1 light  pink heart and 1 darker pink heart and a sticker.

Here are the teacher’s treats. I’ve made these before. The recipe is from Bakerella.


My Sweetheart Meal March 5, 2009

Okay, so this post is a little late…here’s what was on the menu for Valentine’s Day.

I decided to make our Valentine’s meal on Friday night instead of Saturday because I wanted to surprise Mr. MaD. I can’t really surprise him on the weekend since he’s home.

On the menu:

  • Salmon with garlic, parsley, and parmesan cheese
  • Roasted asparagus
  • Cake sandwich cookies

The cake sandwich cookies are from Bakerella. I couldn’t find red velvet cake mix so I used strawberry so I could at least have pink cookies. They were sweet but yummy!

 I also tried this with chocolate cake mix since I had extra frosting.

Mr. MaD enjoyed his surprise.

P.S. This was my Valentine balloon from the girls (and daddy).
