Valentine’s Day Breakfast for Dinner

While I had every intention of re-creating last year’s Julie & Julia Valentine’s Day dinner party, complete with Julia’s beouf bourguignon, this holiday snuck up on me so fast, I had absolutely no time to prepare. So there I was yesterday morning rummaging around the refrigerator in a pre-caffeinated stupor with not so much as a heart-shaped Little Debbie to show for this being the Loooove holiday much less any beouf. And then all of a sudden, a half-eaten package of Vermont maple syrup sausage inspired me with an idea for the evening’s festivities. One dozen red roses, some tacky pjs, a few wine cork place card holders, and a pan full of pink pancakes later and voila! It was a Valentine’s Day breakfast-for-dinner party!

The night was a smash hit topped off by the best two out of three rounds of Scene It. Have you ever played that game? I never thought I was competitive until I discovered Scene It. And then its all fun and games until someone identifies an early years image of Michael J. Foxx before I do and the next thing you know I’m about to lose my Christian witness. Must remember to work on that. The good news is, my team won! Not bad for a girl without cable television.

This blog post is brought to you this afternoon from my dining room table, still covered in roses and mismatched lace doilies beneath red paper chain link garland and a ginormous “I Love You” banner. With all the love in my heart, I wish you a Happy Valentine’s Week from my family to yours.
