Happy Valentine's Day

~ Happy Valentine's Day to you!

~ Since my husband is going to be out of town tonight,
we decided to celebrate our Valentine's Day ALL weekend. 

~ We went to dinner and a movie on Saturday evening and I made him a special dinner on Sunday.... along with heart shaped brownies for dessert.

~ I followed a recipe I blogged about in a previous post. 
You can find the recipe here.
We loved the brownies made from scratch. 
I have a BRAND new recipe to add to my own personal collection.

~ However, in the future, I do not think I will use my heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the heart shaped brownies.  With the recipe I used, I was only able to get 4 heart shaped brownies as the recipe called for using an 8 x 8 baking dish. 
Look at the leftovers after using the heart shaped cookie cutter,
I added them in the picture below.

Here is the picture that accompanied the recipe,
looks close doesn't it?

~ Anyway, the scraps are just as good and we ate them too.

~ Next time, I will just cut the brownies into squares and not use the cookie cutter.  Although my husband thought they were fun. 

~ We exchanged our Valentine's gifts.
He loved his book and camo shorts. 
Plus, I made him some special "coupons" to use
but they are very personal and I cannot share what they were.  (blushing)
I think he liked those the most.  :o)

~ My gift is for Valentine's Day and my birthday which is next Monday.

~ I will take a picture of my gift and post in on my birthday. 

~ I absolutely love, love, love my gift. 

~ Oh... by the way, I had a heart shaped brownie for breakfast today along with an awesome cup of coffee, what a great way to start off a Monday!

~ I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day ~

~ Thanks for stopping by ~
