So valentines day this year was perfect! Stephen and I just spent the day together and had a great time. We gave each other some gifts, Stephen got me three cute pairs of earrings.
I gave him a jar with 101 reasons why I love him, individually written on white and pink pieces of paper. (inspired by http://believeittoseeit.blogspot.com/2008/02/valentines-breakfast-with-my.html which I found from http://www.tipjunkie.com/ – great site!)
Then I gave him some shirts for us to wear when we go to see Flight of the Conchords in May (the tickets were a gift from me for both of us)! My lovely mother spent some time with me this week to help me make the shirts!
Then we did our weekly grocery shopping (how romantic right?) When we got home we watched a couple of movies, the first one was “My Sassy Girl”, I didn’t really like it and it was a chick flick so that is weird, Stephen thought it was alright. The next one was “The girl in the cafe” it was named the best made for TV movie so we didn’t have high hopes for it, but it was done by HBO and it was very interesting and quite a good movie. Then we both put on aprons and cooked dinner together, it was a lot of fun and quite cute, if I do say so myself. The food was delicious, I was very impressed with ourselves, and super impressed that Stephen went out and found the recipe on his own. It was steak lover’s fettuccine alfredo.
Steak Lover’s Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe – from http://www.razzledazzlerecipes.com/
1 box devil’s food cake mix
In a VERY large bowl (4 qt), mix together everything except chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan of choice (I normally use two 9-inch pie pans). For cooking time, I use the cooking times on the back of the devil’s food cake box as a guide and usually add 10 mins to whatever it says. Then I do the toothpick check, and if it’s not done, I check on it every 5 mins after that. 🙂 It usually takes around 45 mins for two, 9-inch pie pans.
I hope you all had a great day as well!
