Instead of going out to dinner like we have in the past...we decided to make a special dinner together at home for Valentine's Day, this year.
We had crab cakes and a delicious salad with homemade dijon vinaigrette dressing.
...The day before Valentine's day I made a surprise - mixed berry & apple pie. Jeff has been hinting around about pie for years, now, and I finally figured "how hard could it really be to make a pie?". So, for the first time in my 34 years I made a real pie (not the instant pudding pie!)! That old adage "It's as easy as pie" rang true! It was a cinch...and I made my Valentine VERY happy!We had such a great dinner filled with lots of conversation about this and that...especially that next Valentine's Day will be much different! We could have a little kid crying in the background, or worse!
After dinner we went to our friend Schelby's basketball game and shared some pie with homemade whipped cream with the neighbors (aka The Bordners!) after the game! By the way, Schelby, that 3-pointer just blew me away!!! You're AMAZING!
