Valentine's Day


On our menu:
  • Slow-cooked baby back ribs finished on the BBQ
  • Steamed asparagus
  • Homemade caramelized onion and herb dinner rolls (from this great cookbook)
  • Homemade cream soda
  • Long grain and wild rice
  • Fresh strawberries and raspberries
Complete with china, goblets, formal tablecloth and place mat settings.  It was a scrumptious, sumptuous feast.  And, after all, nothing says romance quite like barbecue sauce.



For me: a dozen red roses

For him: a Valentine poem (it's been a long time in coming--he writes me poems every Valentine's day)





For us: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom
(I am soooo excited.  Expect some fun photos once I figure out how to use them...)

Snow Day


One inch of snow equals
No work
No school
A lazy morning



It doesn't happen often,
but I love when Texas freezes over.
