I’ve been quite blest with a lot of work lately which explains the lack of creative posts. I feel like all my energy has been going to creating for clients but you’ll get no complaint from me there!
Last weekend, Gerard went all out to give me a wonderful Valentine’s week, which was a much welcome break from working so hard. It started off with:
Beautiful carnations in lovely shades of pinks, reds, purples, and white. I don’t think we ever had flowers in this house! I need to buy flowers more often!
A wonderful meal of green beans, lemon garlic shrimp, sauteed mushrooms and USDA prime steak.
And this wonderful meal featured once of our favorite once a year treats,
Roasted Bone Marrow with Crusty Toasted Pandesal!
I don’t know if there are enough words to describe this decadent, fattening, out of this world spread. Only that it is divine and extremely rich that we only make it about once a year, for special occasions.
Of course, H wanted to make sure that a little girl got a special treat too….
See the Happy Valentiners!
And if all that wasn’t enough, the next day he brought me:
One of my favorite Napa must-haves, French Macaroons from the Bouchon Bakery!
Whew! I really fell of my health kick and indulged! And indulged some more! But it was totally worth it. It’s always wonderful when we get to take a break and take some time to reconnect. With the fact that I work from home, it’s sometimes hard to define the line between work mode and home mode. It was such a wonderful treat to just sit back, talk, and enjoy good food.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s week as we did!
