Celebrate Valentine's Day 2017


Out shopping recently there were so many around the special 'Valentines' aisle in the supermarket. You could see them wondering what may be the best gift to buy. Shall I buy this ... err no - perhaps this one would be better. Call me an incurable romantic but shouldn't every day be Valentines Day?

How often do you treat your wife / husband / partner to a bouquet of flowers, a special smile, or squeeze of the hand to say thank you ... Thank you's are special and cost nothing but they mean so much.

In celebration of Valentine's Day here is a bunch of flowers and a sumptuous dessert that you may like to try. However, you celebrate February 14th Valentine's Day I wish you a good one.



Champagne jelly recipe is a 'Delia' one, just substitute 100g zsweet for sugar and top with a blob of whipped cream instead of syllabub, no frosting on grapes either. Tastes really good - well worth it! Please click on link here for recipe.

All the best Jan

Looks delicious - and the flowers are lovely. I was reminded the other day that I used to buy flowers...and felt a song coming on. Of course, if every day were Valentine's Day then I guess it wouldn't be special. Hope yours is wonderful.

we're smoochie faces year-round. How you feel about Valentine's is how I feel about holidays around food. Each day include good whole yummy foods. Not just a day or two of pgging out. No thanks.

For us, we live each day with good eats and lots of kisses!

That being said, we did get each other a fun little something something. Same with Christmas though we did a clutter-free Christmas. Anyway, I'm going on too long.

Happy SMOOCHIE Day!
