Valentine’s Day is all about indulgences when it comes to food. Chocolate, truffles, fancy dinners; all indulgences. It is one of the few days of the year that you can have as much chocolate as you want and it is acceptable. Don’t worry, I take full advantage.
Today is the conclusion of Pie Week. I hope you enjoyed all of the pies that were shared over the week. Brandy and Audra did a great job putting everything together. Today there is an amazing giveaway thanks to Kitchen Aid. Don’t miss the other giveaways either; OXO and Le Creuset, Cabot and King Arthur Flour. So many great things you can win, I have to say I am just slightly jealous!
On Friday I got to have a lunch date with my husband and see Gravity in 3D thanks to his company. A couple times a year they rent out a theater and the employees get to go see one of the new movies that is out. This is the first time they had extra tickets, and I was able to go too. I can’t remember the last time we saw an adult movie in the theater, so it was a fun afternoon. The only downside; they didn’t supply the popcorn. Can you go to a movie and not get popcorn? It is my favorite part!
Ok, the name for this probably sounds a little bit like an oxymoron. But stay with me here, will you? Cheesecake is normally super rich, creamy, heavy, and full of fat and calories, right? Well this cheesecake is still creamy and rich, but not full of all the fat and calories. And because we saved some calories with the cheesecake, we can afford to add in a few peanut butter cups.
Football season is here! We now have college football on Friday night and Saturday; professional on Sunday, Monday, and sometimes Thursday. But we also have 3rd grade flag football on Sunday with practice during the week. I think it is pretty safe to say that football has taken over our lives. Aside from getting to sit on the couch and browse Pinterest while the boys watch football, the upside is the food! I am all about having friends over to enjoy some good food, and have football on … in the background.
