Shortbread and Ice Cream for My Sweets

February 17, 2009

We don’t make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day here. I’m all about the love, but I think it’s far better to demonstrate how much we love each other by treating each other with love and respect every day rather than buying cards and chocolate one day of the year. Those things are nice, but getting and giving them doesn’t make me feel more loved. I do usually make a nice V-Day dinner, because that’s just what I do. I love to cook. I made the last package of steaks that we had in the freezer, garlic chevre mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. I finished it off with this dessert:

Strawberry ice cream and this shortbread. It was simple, but so good.

    I totally agree with you. The fact that you do something for them all that you really love to do is the best gift of love there can be.
