Valentine’s Day: Take Two

Hope you all had a splendid Valentine’s Day!!!  On Wednesday, I shared the fabulous cookbook “Greek Revival Cooking Food For Life”  by Patricia Moore-Pastides.  I had great intentions of cooking that fabulous meal but in reality…

Handyman Husband and I enjoyed takeout (and paper towel napkins!) from our favorite mom and pop Chinese restaurant, The Chinese Kitchen!  The owners are the sweetest couple, and the food is yummy!

I have to say each time we decide to “stay in,” it ends up being the best evening!  We enjoyed cocktails on the porch and enjoyed a lovely dinner.  The fortunes were great too…

“Valentine’s Day:  Take Two” ended up being the best day.  We did try to get a reservation which didn’t work out.  HH did find a restaurant with a 4:30 opening (and believe it or not, we do enjoy eating that early); however, at the end of the day, all I wanted to do is sit, relax, enjoy a movie with no fuss and no noise.  We will take a raincheck on dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, and I will be cooking that fabulous meal some day.

But in reality, a nice quiet evening at home was just what we needed.  We were able to spend a great Valentine’s morning with the kiddos!

LOVE is all that matters!!!

Enjoy the day and weekend!  I’ll see you back on Tuesday and Happy President’s Day!
