Family Fun + Date Night = Lots of Valentine-y Love

I have the most amazing children. Last night, Amelia and Stephen prepared a Valentine FEAST for Joey and me. The menu included Artichoke and Parmesan Crostini, Peppered Filet Mignon with Red Wine and Mushroom Sauce, Creamed Spinach, Roasted Tomatoes and the most delicious Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. And every single last morsel was South Beach Diet-friendly. That was a beautiful display of love. In fact, just last weekend, I told Joey that what he and I really needed was someone to take us out for supper and talk about something other than our job situation. But, this was far better because we had a meal that no restaurant around here offers.

And what about the Family Fun component of the evening? Well, Clara and Levi, along with Amelia and Stephen, hosted all of the kids at their house for a Valentine’s Party, complete with pizza, crafts and a movie. It was great to know that they were having fun with their siblings while we were enjoying our delicious meal.

I am so grateful for Amelia and Stephen’s generosity and thoughtfulness in dreaming up and executing this meal. I’m thankful that Clara and Levi were willing partners in the overall scheme. What can I say? I have the most amazing children!

    Yes, you do. It sounds like you had a fun and blessed time. Since we are watching what we eat around here, the only deviation from our diet was to eat a gooey chocolate dessert. You have to have chocolate on Valentines Day. It’s a rule. : )
