Happy Valentine's Day

This has been a great Valentine's Day. Dwight and I actually celebrated Valentine's on Friday evening. We had a yummy dinner together. We decided we'd celebrate with the whole family today. So, this is what Valentine's Day looked like at our house today: It started with beautiful roses.

Then Dwight and I spent the afternoon in the kitchen cooking up some yummy dishes for the kids to enjoy with us.
Dwight made some mango pico de gallo and shrimp to serve with plaintain chips that he fried himself and some blue corn tortilla chips. Delicious!
Dwight also made wonderful steak, shrimp and melt-in-your-mouth scallops. (The scallops were a HUGE hit!)I made this yummy roasted brussel sprouts dish. It has granny smith apples, red onions, lots of bacon, and of course, brussel sprouts. So good!
And, of course, what Valentine's Day meal would be complete without a little chocolate? I dipped some large, flavorful strawberries in white and milk chocolate. The kids were really tickled by the tuxedo design.

Hope you all have had a loving Valentine's Day!

That's such a good idea to celebrate as a family. I really like that you got the kids involved and everything. We might have to adopt that approach :)
