I came home last night to a surprise Valentine's day red gift bag! I LOVE surprises and we weren't planning on getting each other any in particular. I had shopped throughout the week, mainly at Wine Authorities, for some fun eats that I knew we'd enjoy noshing on together. That was my gift to the hubby. I dreamt all night about what was in my red Valentine's bag...I finally came to the conclusion that it was a cookbook...but what one? I was right! Andy purchased Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook for me!! He said he wanted to get me a cookbook I'd love but not one that I'd expect! He did a perfect job - we don't buy gifts for each other much so this one was extra special to me! Andy loved his v-day gift too (and I highly recommend the "recipe for love"!
Here's our v-day nibblers: hot soppresseta, cheese, dates, pepperocini's, clementines. olive ciabatta, and more champagne. We've still got the Chardonnay to enjoy later.
Decadent chocolates with a secret note "once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale"! I had the first two tonight, along with several Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies!
We finished off our evening for two with Nights in Rodanthe! Wonderful!
