It’s a leap year! How did you spend your extra day of February? Even if you had to work (like me) I hope you found something fun to do, I mean, February 29th only comes around every 4 years 😉
I celebrated with chocolate. Because chocolate is my life. Oh, and
three a glass of wine, too.
I’m not going to lie – February is one of those blah months for me. When I was still back in Minnesota, February was the worst; the cold, bleak, dirty snow just keeping you stuck inside and the sun still isn’t out when you really want it to be. Do you know what I mean? Sometimes it’s a real struggle. Luckily down here in North Carolina the sun is starting to stay out until 6:00, making spring feel closer than it is.
So, obviously February means Valentine’s Day, and I know everyone has different feelings about that day, but I was super excited this year to actually have Jason home (last year he was on deployment). I realize this “holiday” is a huge marketing strategy made to make men feel like they need to buy chocolate and roses and diamonds, but luckily my man knows the way to my heart: pancakes.
He’s apparently held back the fact that he’s a master pancake maker FOR YEARS. So now every weekend since Valentine’s Day I’ve requested pancakes (and don’t think that’s going to stop anytime soon).
We also got an espresso maker – which means I’ve been spending my weekends editing photos with homemade espresso drinks of all kinds.
And because we’ve been friends for a while, I’m willing to share with you this awful selfie for the sake of creme brulee. Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee to be exact. Cahhh-bammmm-ohmyyygooood! It’s so good. SO. GOOD.
So let me tell you, Jason said a few months back he would never do a puzzle with me because, in nicer words, he thought I would be too
bossy much of a leader with my puzzle skills. Now, normally he would be totally right – I must admit that sometimes I think my way is the best way. But with a puzzle, I knew we would be a-okay. So this month, we put it to the test.
And guess what, it went smoother than that creme brulee! Who was right about that?! 😉
How was your February? I hope that even if your days are still short, you’re finding ways to cope (I recommend a nice glass of Merlot, a scented candle, warm cookies, and a puzzle).
Also, incase you missed it, would you pretty, pretty please give me your feedback in this survey?! I can’t tell you how much I’d appreciate it – so I can make Fork in the Kitchen everything you want, whether it’s more chocolate recipes, or more chocolate.
