Valentine’s Day 2016

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’ll give presents and maybe do some heart shaped themed baking (I love baking) but haven’t celebrated much more than that.

Ryan was at work today, cooking for many couples that had booked a table at the restaurant, I knew he’d be tired and hungry when he got home and decided to treat him. I cooked some chicken pesto pasta with heart shaped tricolour pasta and a little chilli powder to give it a kick.

It was very good! The chilli powder was just enough without being over powering. I used about a teaspoon.

We decided we weren’t going to do much for Valentine’s Day as neither of us really celebrate it but, as we both have Sunday evenings off, we decided to go and see the movie Deadpool at the cinema – it was awesome! Very funny!

I made Ryan a small hamper using a box covered in red wrapping paper and filled with little gifts. The hamper included some home made heart shaped sugar cookies, home made heart shaped chocolates, a small bottle of rosé, some smellies etc.

He really liked it and loved that I’d baked for him, I bake often but this is only the second time I’ve baked specifically for him (the other being a chocolate frosted cake for his birthday last year). We tried the chocolates straight away, they were very tasty. I used milk chocolate and valentine’s themed sprinkles.

One more treat for Ryan was popping his robe on the towel rail to warm up. 🙂

Hope everyone had a good Sunday / Valentine’s Day! Did you do anything to celebrate? … Anyone seen Deadpool?
