Some pink foods for Valentine's Day
Sorry but that's probably it on new recipes for this week. Last night I had to do Valentine's Day cards for my older son's party which they're having today. When did Valentine's Day cards become so complicated? Putting them together is an exercise in origami (which I was never able to master).
No more 'sign and stuff' but instead:
Step 1. Sign them.
Step 2. Separate them.
Step 3. Form them into little boxes.
Step 4. Form them into little boxes again because I did them the wrong way.
Step 5. Form them into little boxes again because I was right the first time.
Step 6. Stuff with candy.
Step 7. Feel guilty in morning when teacher mentions she will just be happy if the child tried to write his own name on the cards but Bad Mommy didn't think to let him help since it takes him 10 minutes and a giant sheet of paper to write his name once so writing it 21 times in a tiny space seemed an impossibility.
Step 8. Explain to teachers that there was only one favorite teacher valentine included in the box and the teacher who didn't get that Valentine shouldn't take it personally - they are loved equally (and Bad Mommy didn't manage to find time to work around this).
Since I have nothing new, here are a few pink recipes to get you in the mood for Valentine's Day.
