A Treat for your Valentine

 


Here is a fun recipe to share with your
Valentine.

Eggo Smores

24 Mini Waffles
12 Marshmallows
24 Hershey Chocolate Squares
3 T butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking
pan with Parchment paper. Place 12 waffles
in a single layer bake for 5 minutes.

Place 2 pieces of chocolate one marshmallow
on on the 12 waffles, then top with the remaining
12 waffles to make sandwiches. Brush tops with
the melted butter.

Bake 2-3 minutes more or until chocolate and
marshmallows are melty.


**As you can see by the picture you can use the
larger waffles plus chocolate and marshmallows
but I think using the smaller waffles would be
more "Smore ish."


Happy Heart day!!

Holiday Fun

 

Valentine's Day is second to Christmas
as the most celebrated day of the year
in the U.S.

Valentine's Day is the big time of year
for Red Roses.

73% of people who buy flowers for the
holiday are men.


 
Kids age 6-10 exchange more than 650
million cards with their teachers, friends, classmates and family.

The people receiving Valentine's cards
are Teachers, Kids, Moms, Wives and
Sweethearts.

Hallmark makes over 1,330 different
cards for the holiday.

 
Verona, the city where Romeo and Juliet
lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed
to Juliet every Valentine's Day.

Approx $77.43 is spent on Valentine's Day
gifts--give or take a few dollars and cents.

About 3% of pet owners will give their pets
a gift on Valentine's Day.


Conversation hearts were first made by
candy maker NECCO in 1866, at that time
they were called Motto Hearts. I believe
this year there is a shortage of these
but I have seen little Brach's boxes.

More than 35 million heart shaped boxes
of candy will be sold for Valentine's Day.

Men and women prefer  chocolate over
flowers. Chocolate sales represent 75%
or more of Valentine's Day candy purchases.


I took Valentine's Day off...little mental health day for me. Will miss our party but...

Happy Valentine's to All!


Stop back by tomorrow for a
Valentine treat recipe.

Watching...

 


Happy February...

Valentine's is coming up. Where
has this month going?

So tonight we are watching one of
my fave channels. Yes, I am a Hall-
mark channel junkie, especially
when the holidays roll around.

I enjoy these movies because they
are lighthearted, easy to watch, and
fun. Yes, we all know pretty much
how they end but we don't know the
path the characters will take to get
there.

This channel is my escape from the
stress of the world around me, I don't
have think too much during these movies
and that is just fine with me.

Do you watch Hallmark? What do you enjoy?

Ahhh Saturday




Howdy do!

It is Saturday as you know---one of my
fave days.

Not much happening here. Playing catch
up with stuff that we did not get to during
the week.
That work thing sure gets in the way.  :)

The sun is out at least giving it a warm
look outside though it is not. I guess our
temps will crash later this week.

Tonight we are going to dinner with our
good friends, they are taking Mr. Ken and
I out as a "Thank you" to Mr for helping
them with a project they were working on.
It will be fun to see them!

A short post for now, hope your weekend
is  SPECTACULAR!!!!
