Not much exciting to show that looks like it belongs to the day though....so I give you, instead.... flowers from my garden last summer. I love peonies .. they look like fluffy pink clouds.
I gave away my heart cookie cutters a couple of years ago to another blogger... silly me.... and haven't come across a new set yet.
I didn't always use them just for cookies either....they were handy for all sorts of things. See how cute they look as part of my table decorating on another Valentine's Day?
So, no cookies..but, I did bake a cute little loaf of bread yesterday... and we had a slice of it hot ...slathered with lovely butter. And...I declared it was our "day before Valentine's Day treat" ... does that count?
Actually the recipe, which is Carson's, from over at The 7 MSN Ranch, makes two cute little "couple" sized loaves (or one bigger loaf), but I took the other to a neighbour. Bread is so lovely hot and fresh. And, the husband of the couple wants to learn to make bread...so this is the very simplest of loaves to make ...and,....it tastes great! I'm encouraging him.
It finally looks like winter here this morning....we had a few inches of snow yesterday........
