Happy Valentine's Day!

Sweet Valentine's Day wishes to you and yours.

This little case was fun and easy. I only had gigantic magnetic snaps, so I used some sew-in velcro dots.

 Then I made some coordinating bookmark from Skip to my Lou's cute tutorial.

Gigantic button mushrooms simmered in red wine, beef broth, garlic, butter, Worcestershire sauce and dill. Simmer for hours so your house smells wonderful. Based loosely on the Pioneer Woman's Burgundy mushrooms. They're better than meat. And don't forget the crusty bread to soak up the sauce.

Aha moment. I had no idea you could peel a soft boiled egg! I'm newly obsessed with soft boiled eggs, but I usually use an egg cup and dip toast "soldiers" into the egg. There's waste. This method is easier and just as tasty. The aha part, bring your egg to room temperature before simmering on a low boil for 4-5 minutes.

I did a little card making for my sweets yesterday. Bought them some treats too. And I have a special dinner planned to celebrate. Now to get some work done so I can play. Happy Valentine's Day!

Don't forget about the dress giveaway. There aren't many comments, so your chances are really good!
