Happy Valentines Day all! I know many people don’t like this holiday much but I actually find it nice. I know you should show your love all year long but I think it is nice to set aside a day of the year that you are allowed, no required to be all lovey dovey!
I also never turn down an opportunity to get or give gifts! Now I love flowers as much as the next girl. I mean they are pretty and smell nice. But let s be honest, they don’t last all that long and they cost a fortune (especially this time of year) for something that is going to turn rancid and ugly and end up in the trash! Now plants are very nice if you can manage to keep them alive. I love plants but I manage to kill everything. I am not the green thumb in this house, M has that duty.
I tend to like more practical things. In past Valentines Day I have been the recipient of such goods as beautiful chef’s knives, exceptional cheese, Laouille steak knives, etc… he does good doesn’t he! This year was no exception!
BEHOLD, MY NEW BEAUTY!
Isn’t it beautiful! It arrived today in the biggest box you could possibly imagine, with enough packing material to ship a small child! It is a massive 2′ x 1.5′ and weighs in at whopping 18 lbs! The thing is massive and takes up a good chunk of my counter, but oh isn’t she sweet! I am waiting for my “Mystery Oil/Cream” that Boos recommends so I can use it but until then I can think of all the things I want to cook, any ideas?
