I've been wanting to write a post about how life is changing for us, but every time I start, I sound whiney and I say things I shouldn't. So, here's a post about Valentine's Day instead.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
Richard and I celebrated by going out to a local restaurant - Fresh Spectacular! It's in the little town of Bristol. The restaurant is a restored 1930's train car. It's quiet, it's adult, it's fancy and oh, my, it's delicious! Check out the website (but turn off the music. It reminds me of questionable late-night naughty girl TV shows. LOL BTW, has anyone noticed how "sexy" cooking shows have gotten? No more clean cut, motherly types...it's all close ups, slow mo and badoink-a-doink music.)
Then, this evening, the kids decided to surprise Richard. They made him valentines - glitter everywhere! - wrapped up gifts they found in their toyboxes and set the table with linen and stemware. Then, they made him spaghetti. I kid you not, they pretty much did it all. They chopped the veggies, stirred the pot, grated the cheese and even helped roast the garlic. All I did was supervise and boil the pasta water. They were so proud of themselves!
I made dessert, though. Strawberry mousse in chocolate cups with a strawberry coulis. Yum! It was like eating little strawberry clouds.
I hope you've had a wonderful day!
