Hidden treasure

Okay, I'm discontinuing Weekly Food Horoscope... at least for the time being.  Not enough comments, and well, I suck at doing anything on a weekly basis that I'm not required to do by law, my husband or those people that pay me money (fools!).  Maybe if there is a big wave of demand I will continue (feel free to comment below), but until then the Weekly Food Horoscope has a TBD fate.  But!  I did find a hidden treasure in my wad of memory cards today.  It's from Valentine's day (awww) and I had to take a picture of my cute creations.


I made individual Beef Wellington.  I'm kind of a scrooge and don't really care about Valentine's day.  I do love my husband, but really?  Shitty chocolate in a heart shaped box?  So not my style.  I prefer my chocolate dark, rich and in bar form (I'll skip the bon-bons).  Flowers are great on any day, but I prefer ruby red shoes to scarlet roses.  Ooh, can we make shoes a Valentine's day standard from here on out?  So I don't like V-day... but I'm a sucker for an excuse to make a fancy meal, so Beef Wellington it was.  And since it was v-day I had an excuse to be cute. 



Trying to be a LITTLE less of a scrooge, I did the cute K+K for Kate and Kyle instead of my preferred K v. K, (Kate versus Kyle is the name of our band.  And yes, we are available for weddings.)

And then I got even girlier and threw on some hearts.



And here they are being cute on the silpat together.



Did you kids do anything cute for your honey for Valentine's day?

When I used to cater, I looked forward to beef wellington nights. I'd battle with the chef to take home leftovers :) My at home attempt didn't turn out very well, but that's likely because I didn't know the difference between puff pastry and phyllo dough. I've come so far since then!

Oh and re: Valentine's Day? I hate that holiday.
