Happy Heart Day

Oh the sappy sweetness started early at our house. Yesterday I said “How about breakfast in town before we run errands?”  Good idea…breakfast out is one of his favorite things to do!Blowing Snow

The roads were yucky in spots… and the wind was blowing.

I will cook a lovely dinner at home for Valentines because it is cold and windy and wind chills are dangerously low… it is  safer just to stay home. Perhaps he will offer me some of the dark chocolate that he hoards in the cupboard.  Last year he took me by the card aisle in Wally World and let me read some cards…this year he joined me in the most fun of all a quick walk down the candy aisle with all the heart shaped boxes…well if it was good for him then it was good for me.

So I will make oven steak and spaetzle…one of his favorite meals.  Then I will let him listen to the hockey game.

As you can tell we are both hopeless romantics!

  2. Had to laugh at Intense Guy...your Far Guy is really a hopeless romantic, as you described. Enjoy those dark chocolates, which I'm sure he will share. Have flowers from hubby and dinner out tonight.

  5. Seem to me like you two make every day together special. Poppy and I used to go to the card aisle and pick each other out a card to read. It was fun and saved money. I love the bracelets in your last post. They turned out so pretty.

  7. You guys sound so cute, reading all that:)
    We'll probably just give each other a hug and a kiss and wish each other a Happy Valentine's day:) We have some chocolate in the house, but me especially at this point is not wanting to take that first piece in 45 days. My sister is arriving this evening from frozen Ontario, so there is lots I want to get done before I have to head to the airport.

  8. True love mellowed down to what is important. As for Tom and me, we're staying in and watching another storm sweep through our area. We might do some hugging...just to keep warm, of course.

  9. We have avoided restaurants for years on this sweet day of the year! We give our kids small restaurant gift cards. I did not buy special cards this year. Everyone gets the same one out of a packet! A person could become card poor. Bill and I have learned to take our romantic "dates" during the year when the mood strikes. Today is a LOVEly day off from routine. He is on the tail end of a cold virus so we will do whatever we want or have energy for at home. It makes us happy!

  17. Ooh, dinner sounds delicious. Nice of you to let him listen to the hockey game though. I have never been to a Wild game and decided Valentine's Day was as good as any to take my granddaughter to the game! We just got last minute tickets.

  18. We went out to eat Friday night and from what we heard, we would never had made it back into that place on Saturday. It was already completely booked. It is so dang cold that we are going to eat roast chicken supper tonight. Steak sounds really good. Enjoy and stay warm.

  21. We DID end up going out to eat at a nice restaurant - - - got there early afternoon and had no wait. It was delicious. Question - - - would you consider sharing your oven steak recipe - - - or do you just cook it under the broiler? Thanks.

    1. Throw some steak in a roasting pan with some water, cover it and bake it until it falls apart. Then add some brown gravy and bake about 20 minutes longer...serve over spaetzle. Spaetzle for two is one egg, 1/3 cup milk and 1 cup flour...mix together and use a spaetzle maker to deposit the noodles into boiling water that has a dissolved chicken broth cube in it. Stir a little drain and feast. Easy peasy and tastes good too:)

  25. I am learning so much right here on your blog. I appreciate the recipe you left in a comment above. Easy peasy meals are my favorite kind! I am lying in bed with the bedroom door open to the patio listening to the wind chimes, birdsong and the sounds of life floating through the air. Kids playing and even some yard machines humming. Our weather will turn colder tonigh. They say it will be 25 degrees Tuesday morning. I cannot even wrap my mind about the winters you have!
