....the 11th Valentine.......

....we have stayed home for the last 11 Valentines we have spent together......our first Valentine's date was the night I learned Stefan could cook....he spent hours making a red sauce that was incredibly delicious and better than anything I had ever tasted at a restaurant.....since that evening, I vowed that for every February 14 we spent together; all I wanted was his cooking.....no restaurants with price fixes, no crowded waits; just the two of us at home making something out of our norm.....

....so after the babes were tucked and snoozing, he got to work.....

....last night was his first veal milanese.....he added an arugula, tomato and parmesan salad with lemon dressing.....

.....ah-mazing......


....I didn't have the same zeal for the kids' meal.....at 6pm, an hour past their usual dinnertime, I announced that they were having red and pink pancakes for dinner.....Momma wasn't prepared for as busy of a day as it ended up to be.....but no one was complaining about breakfast for dinner.....


....these are the easiest pancakes to make from scratch and the recipe can be found here......

....I hope your day was filled with love, great meals, smiling babies, cuddly pets, chocolate, an interesting book, good friends, handmade Valentines or whatever else makes you happy.....

....the Melting Pot giveaway goes to commenter #9, Sara H.....Ah, Melting Pot! Tim and I had the brilliant idea to go out to dinner there when Graham was just about 12 months old.... Just the age when they want to grab everything, of course! So we have a boiling pot and sharp sticks and a grabby baby and let's just say it was one of the least relaxing meals I have ever had! I think we would have a lot more fun there now that Graham is 3 :).....

....Congratulations, Sara! Enjoy your night of fondue!.....

....Happy three day weekend to all......
