Making Valentine’s Day special. . .
I wanted the boys’ Valentine’s Day to be special from beginning to end. So I started off surprising them with a special place setting for our Valentine’s Day breakfast.
I got these adorable Valentine’s plates after Valentine’s Day on clearance years ago. Each plate has a different picture on it. I was excited to finally put them to use! They each got a Valentine’s mailbox filled with goodies.
Which of course they loved!
Check out this Villaware waffle maker we got as a wedding gift. Perfect for a Valentine’s Day breakfast!
Heart-shaped waffles with whipped cream and cherries on top because they are Little Man #1′s favorite!
Little Man #2 didn’t seem to mind either. He did not get use the pretty Valentine’s Day plates. Too risky to let this wild man have anything breakable!
Daddy surprised us by taking us to lunch and taking the rest of the day off! We played outisde at the park in the beautiful Carolina weather! 70 degrees!
And for dinner. . .
Fondue is very quickly becoming a Valentine’s Day tradition in our house. Here we have filet mignon and rib-eye pieces along with a mustard and curry sauces. The sauces are a “recipe” I got from a friend. It’s all done by taste so I don’t have measurements to give you. However, you can find similar sauce recipes here.
A nice salad and roasted red potatoes accompany the fondue for our Valentine’s Day dinner.
And for the adults, a really nice Pinot Noir!
And because it’s a special day, the little guy got chocolate milk in a special glass with a special straw.
And to finish off this yummy Valentine’s Day dinner, our cake balls and chocolate dipped strawberries for dessert!
I hope your Valentine’s Day was as special as ours!
