Valentine’s Day

Life has been a bit busy lately so there was a bit of a delay for my Valentine’s Day celebration post.

For our centerpiece I used the two Valentine’s gift bags that I put together for the two children still living in my house. If you can have baskets for Easter, why not gift bags for Valentine’s Day? Plus it gave me a chance to spoil them with gifts other than heart shaped boxes of candy that they don’t particularly like.

For our meal I made one of my husband’s favorites; flank steak on garlic toast.

For dessert I decided to make something special and Harry Potter themed. I created a bread pudding with a Firewhisky sauce. Everyone enjoyed that so much that I’ve already had to make it again since Valentine’s Day! My bread pudding recipe was raisin free by request of my family but if you decide to make it, feel free to add raisins or dried cherries.
