Happy Valentine’s Day!
I like Valentine’s Day regardless of whether I’m single or not. Having a date can be fun, but being single means making cupcakes for my family!
I’m saving my candy consumption for the next few days, when all the chocolate goes on sale. Yes, I am that cheap.
I tried to include a little bit of pink or red in all of my meals today.
I had PB&J cream of wheat for breakfast. I kept seeing PB&J oats on Carrie‘s blog and knew it would make a great topping for cream of wheat, and it did!
My second class was cancelled, so I headed home early with the intention of baking. It didn’t happen- there was a repairman in our kitchen all day. Boo! I also had to eat all of my lunch upstairs.
Cold broccoli soup (it’s actually good cold!)
Pumpkin yogurt with a graham cracker on top-
And an unpictured apple with PB.
I had to drop my brother off in the afternoon, so I took advantage of the fact that I was already out and drove to a new running route.
Look at these views!
I covered five miles in 48:16 (9:39 pace, whoop whoop!) I was especially pleased because the hills were ridiculous. There are no hills on my normal running routes, so I was dying a little.
More Valentine’s colored food!
Dinner was my attempt at potato pancakes. For not following a recipe, they sure tasted good, but the presentation left something to be desired.
I meant to make red velvet cupcakes, but we had no red food coloring or cream cheese, so I settled for vanilla cupcakes.
With a few red sprinkles for a festive touch 🙂
My parents gave me a new muffin tin for Valentine’s Day! It has removable pink silicon holders. I think I am in love.
I ate so much frosting I wasn’t even in the mood for a cupcake- but that didn’t stop me from having ice cream!
What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day memory? I think it’s a toss up between eating Snicker’s hearts the size of my head in elementary school and the first flowers I got from a boy. He called my best friend to see what my favorite flower was and surprised me with them 🙂 Ah, to be 16 again…
