Valentine Dinner

Marc came home early from work today, because he really wasn't feeling well. So it is a good thing that we are too lazy to go out and find a babysitter and a place to eat, because we couldn't have gone anyway.

Instead, Marc lay down and slewpt most of the afternoon. Since Gabriel and the baby both fell asleep in the car, there was no noise to disturb him until the oldest children came home from school. I sent them all downstairs to play, so it was fairly quiet for a long time.

I made French toast, cut out pieces of bread into heart shapes and then cooked both the hearts and the pieces that the heart had been cut out of. The pieces with the heart-shaped hole got filled up with fruit salad. I poured maple sirop over that and squirted on whipped cream too. Then I placed the heart-shaped French toast beside it and dribbled maple sirop on that. It tasted as good as it looked. Yum! For desert we had the leftover heart-shaped cookies and some ice-cream.

Maybe I'll go have some porto with Marc later... mmm...
