Oops! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Posted by Lissa on February 15, 2012
Oops! I was so indignant about the Ministry of Truth stuff yesterday that I forgot to post Valentine’s stuff! Mike’s out of town right now so we celebrated early over the weekend. I made one of his favorite dinners, Aussie meat pies (lean ground beef, onion, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, tomato paste all simmered together and piled between puff pastry layers) — Valentine’s style!
For dessert, I made red velvet mini cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting (yes, all of it from scratch):
I had some red sugar sprinkles but decided that they weren’t necessary and might be messy. Then I watched an episode of Cupcake Wars and mourned that I hadn’t added sprinkles AND a fondant heart. Or something.
As for Valentine’s Day itself . . .
My sweetie is a wonderful guy :)
I hope your Valentine’s Day held as much love and good feelings as mine did!!
