We got an early start because we had big plans. We ran errands, went to the store, and came home to make a Valentine's dinner for Daddy and Gramma, Grampa, and Uncle Owen.
We had Valentine's to make:
We had to salt eggplant and let it sit for Eggplant Parmasan:
I went all out and made my sauce from scratch this time. No bottled stuff on Love Day!
We did a little decorating.
And my little helper was there by my side the whole time, dirty face and crazy ponytails and all.
It was taking a long time, so she caught up on some reading.
And she had to love on her Valentine, Piper. (Piper doesn't love the loving as much as Hayden thinks she does.)
A truck-load of time and work later, here is our delicious dinner - Eggplant Parmasan. (I LOVE this stuff!!)
And later, there is a special treat for everyone - Chocolate Toffee Saltines. (click here to make some- they are TO DIE FOR..... and surprisingly easy to make!)
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all found a little love in your life today. :) I know I did.
