So, this year we decided on no gifts, but instead we'd each plan a day of the weekend. Today is my day. Here's what's on the menu:
Puddin' Place Eggs, Bacon & Buttermilk Waffles w/Orange Marinated Strawberries, Homemade Orange-Scented Whipped Cream
OK. So, our last post was all about splurging...turns out today is somewhat of a splurge, too. Oh well. You only have Valentine's one day a year, er, uh, in our case, two days? Who cares. Since two of the items on the breakfast menu were on the last post, I won't give you the low-down again.
Picnic in Southshore Park
(After we worked out. Lol.)
Peppered Turkey & Roasted Pepper Sanwiches on Mini Ciabatta Rolls w/Homemade Tortilla Wedges & Hummus (which I did not make!) & Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
PF Changs China Bistro. OH YEAH BABY. We love PF Changs! We've been eating there for birthdays and special occasions since we've been together. So, I thought I'd give myself, and the dishwasher a break for dinner!
