Valentines Day 2011


We actually celebrated Valentines Day yesterday as  the husband to my BFF has a birthday that just so happens to fall on Valentines Day. And every year for his birthday my BFF puts on a really beautiful dinner for the 4 of us. It’s always so much fun.

So yesterday I made my family a special Valentines dinner like I do every year.

Main course :Enchilada Casserole (Hubby’s request) with a nice green salad.

Dessert: Lemon cupcakes with strawberry cream cheese frosting! (SOOOOOO Good!)



Do you see those cute heart shaped bowls? Here, take a closer look.

Aren’t they adorable? They match my red and white plates perfectly and here’s the best part. They were only .49 a piece at Michaels. Can you say SCORE! Oh yes!


Here are the super yummy GF lemon cupcakes with strawberry cream cheese icing. The icing was a little soft so it didn’t stay put but it was sooooo yummy it didn’t matter!


I hope you all have a super duper Valentine’s Day!



  1. What a fun way to celebrate!! I need to do more things like this! Have a GREAT DAY!

  2. So pretty...your menu changed from the last time we talked, or was that your Anniv. menu?? lol

    Anyhow, purty table and yummy lookin' cupcakes. We ate out of our heart bowls last night too! I made Mikey his favorite dinner (Chicken n' Dumplins) as one of his "treasure hunt" gifts, hee hee.
