full of love

We’ve been having a wonderful Valentine’s day. First we started out with heart pancakes.

Then gift exchanging — vegan chocolates for me from Sweet Fritsy and a stitched up Valentine for my hubby (and his bike riding butt).

A trip up the mountain for a picnic lunch and play in the snow with the kids. We feasted on heart shaped pasta salad and chocolate, cream cheese brownies.

For dinner, some take out Chinese to celebrate the Chinese New Year.  We are making a Dragon now, and I made these adorable little felt fortune cookies to handout to my friends at work last Friday.

Tonight, some love potion…  Herbal infused brandy mixed with chocolate syrup, rose water and vanilla. The recipe is from Rosemary Gladstar’s Family Herbal.  It took weeks to brew (or infuse). It’s really tasty and will be served with organic strawberries.  Yum.

Hope you had a beautiful and love filled Valentine’s day.

    Your menu for yesterday was so pretty! I like how there were hearts throught all the meals of the day. I also liked you gift to your hubs, cute idea! Happy belated Valentine’s Day.

  3. Boy that embroidery with the ‘bike riding butt saying’ is the best thing ever! I need to get a little sassier with my art. It is just too much fun!

    Funny, I just made that ‘love potion’ recipe too! I love the Rosemary Gladstar book. Love your little label for the bottle. It really improves the experience when you have cute packaging (at first I tried the liquor straight out of the jar I made it in … but I have to say it tastes better when packaged nicely) 🙂
