Well now doesn't that Valentine cupcake look good? It's a shame it wasn't eatable!
I have a set of 8 these place card holders but decided to use just one for my simple dining for two at the breakfast bar.
Nothing fancy but dining at the breakfast bar is all we need for the two of us. But It sure makes me smile to doll it up just a tad.
Don't you just love the cute salt/pepper shakers? I am enjoying using the wooden tray as well and have used it for several things. I found it at a thrift store months ago for $2. I have surely been enjoying my Valentine Tree, tablescape and other V-Day decor. Can't decide if I want to decorate for Saint Patty's day or just wait a bit and get my "Spring on". Do you decorate for Saint Patrick's day?
We went to watch my favorite grandson play basketball. Our church has what is called "Fueled Sports" for Kids and it has surely proven to be an awesome outreach to the community. His dad coaches two of the teams and it's so much fun to watch those kids. BTW....he's my only grandson.
We did a little meat processing with venison.
I had to cook a small patty just to make sure I had it seasoned like we wanted it to be. If you have ever wondered why sausage cost so much to purchase in the stores well let me tell you. It's work!
Fixed a little red beans, rice and sausage in the crock pot. I have always made this dish on the stove top but Lea had a great recipe using the crock pot. I did make a few adjustments but all the same....it was so good. Cooked yellow rice instead of white and just as good if not better. And, I used venison. YUM!

Speaking of Valentine's Day...
My daughter Melissa co-teaches our 4th grade Sunday school class at our church and their class put LOVE into action for Valentine's Day. They made Valentine cards with candy for some of the resident's at a local nursing home in which my mom is a resident of. I know that we most often celebrate Valentine's day with cards, candy, flowers, and gifts for those we love the most and that are dear to our heart. I would like to challenge you to look around and maybe reach out to someone that normally would not have anyone acknowledging them for Valentine's Day. I already have someone in mind. It sure will make a difference to them...and to you.
John 13:34-A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
Hugs and blessings and Happy Valentine's Day.
