Valentine's Day

We decided last year to make Valentine's a family holiday,
where we celebrate the love that we share together.

It was not the most loving day around our house this year, I'll admit that.
We had quite a few issues pop up throughout the day.
But the food was great.

For breakfast we had eggs in a basket with heart cut-outs.
Lunch was going to be grilled cheese hearts and some tomato soup, but
the kids were driving me crazy so they had pb&j since it was 
faster to get ready.
For dinner we had heart shaped pizza.  I picked up the 
dough from our grocery store, and for some reason the second one wouldn't 
stretch out any bigger.  So we had one thin crust and one that was 
ultra-thick.  But bother were delicious.
 I grabbed a fondant cutter and made the pepperoni festive.
We had the sister missionaries over for dinner, and since it was a holiday,
we went all out.  We used cutie paper plates and cups that were covered in hearts,
had some red sparkling cider along with our water/milk; and ended the evening
up with some ice cream & your choice of toppings.
The toppings were Valentine m&m's, cinnamon lips, conversation hearts,
and chocolate or caramel syrup.

It was a day of great food!
