Valentine's upDATE

I think this year turned out to be my favorite Valentine's Day because of how it turned out so organically.  We had a great time at dinner... Paesano's was great.  I had the mushroom risotto and it was smoky goodness with it's porchini mushrooms and smoked chicken.  Matthew has a Mediterranean pizza and was impressed.  We fumbled our way through the streets of midtown as we looked at the various art venues.  Some of the art was good and some, well, lets just say beauty must be in the eye of the beholder.  I personally don't consider dryer lint and pubic hair on canvas a work of art but there was a whole wall of it so clearly, someone likes it. After we walked for several blocks and had our fill of art (and people : ) watching, we drove to Temple Coffee.  It was getting pretty late but sitting in the cafe to end our evening out was perfect.  I felt like we were hidden away in a cozy little nook away from the busy city night life.

We were planning to go light and spend about $30 on the whole night but we were blessed with an unexpected $50 gift card so we splurged a bit : )  I think we went out of pocket a whopping $4.  All in all it was great night!  I will post pics of us lovers as soon as I get them from Matthew but for now... my funny valentines...

 

On Valentines day, we make pink Ebelskiver with homemade lemon curd for breakfast and exchanged homemade valentines...
