I know exactly how I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year. The same way I have since I met my husband back in college. I will be pampering him for his birthday. But, not until Friday because he has a late night class on Valentine’s Day. So, he will probably spend the evening trying to stay awake while I encourage our son to leave him alone and let him sleep. So romantic!
Chinese New Year’s Eve is Monday night and a whole fish is supposed to bring abundance and prosperity for the coming year. Or you can serve this Pan Fried Sweet and Sour Whole Fish for a Lenten Friday or Meatless Monday or any day you choose.
Happiness is Homemade Link Party #256
Okay, okay! I am the crazy lady… with two blogs: That Recipe (food) and Munofore (MUsings NOt FOod RElated: mostly crafts, gardening, and healthy aging posts these days). Add in a husband and 10 year old son, is it any reason I talk to myself?
I have the privilege of picking our features for the next two months and I am so excited! I will be trying to pick some new bloggers as well as those that have been partying with us for years and to select a nice mix of food, crafts, decor and more for you every week.
Let’s get this party started already!
Who is surprised I have a Valentine’s Day theme going with our features this week? Hopefully no one. There were so many wonderful ideas last week you may want to stop by and see all of them.
Carol from Comfort Spring Station has three cute printable Valentine’s cards featuring a puppy, kitten and bird.
Next up is this fun craft from Tee Diddly Dee. You can stuff these DIY Valentine Felt Fortune Cookies with love notes or other trinkets (engagement rings, perhaps?) or use them as decorations for years to come.
Paula from Sweet Pea repurposed her Granny’s old buttons into this lovely DIY Valentine Button Heart. Excuse me while I rush to check my button tin …
Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom shows how she put together this Valentine’s Day Tiered Tray plus links to a few others that inspired her.
And since you have all been so good this week, you can have dessert courtesy of A Hippy and A Redneck. Am I the only one that wants to lick my screen at the sight of this Cherry Swirl Cheesecake with Homemade Cherry Syrup?
