Ahh best laid plans...
Jeff tried very hard to make Valentine's Day (2011) (don't remark about how behind I am) as special as possible. After working a very long night work and going home to sleep, he made me think that I would not see him on Valentine's Day. I pouted...as you knew I would. Alas! He showed up in the morning to cook me breakfast. Although his intentions were wonderful...the pancakes just didn't make it.
A rose and card. Jeff says that every woman deserves a rose on Valentine's Day...what a sweetie.
Bacon! Which ended up being most of my breakfast after the pancakes failed. I am not complaining...mmm bacon.
Now this impressed me. Jeff made homemade whipped cream from scratch. He bought cream, added sugar and agave and whipped it up. It was so good and creative and so cute pink.
Fresh squeezed orange juice...by hand. We don't have a fancy juicer so Jeff was squeezing these all morning.
To beef up the breakfast a little big Jeff tried to salvage the day with a heart shaped egg. You could really use any cookie cutter to make a cute shaped egg.
Butter first! I can imagine I didn't feel great after this meal knowing now that I have a dairy allergy.
The way to a woman's heart is through an egg...yea pretty sure that's how it goes.
