I love holidays! Holidays give me the opportunity to explore my creative side. And sometimes I am able to come up with fun stuff of my own and then in other cases get and expand on the ideas of others. I love to try and make special meals to go along with the holiday we are celebrating. For this year's special meal I made Sliders. Yeah, I know pretty ordinary but with some added flair they make a festive meal.
Here's another fun and fabulous treat with Valentine's Day written all over it. Chocolate Covered Strawberries! I made this batch of beauties for Abby's classroom Valentine's Party.
Unfortunately, Abby started running a fever again last night and was unable to attend her party. I went in and dropped off all her goodies and picked up her Valentines. Matt must have told her what I was doing because she met me at the door with a huge smile on her face. These must have made her feel better and loved by her class. I am so glad to see her smiling even though she has had a tough day of disappointment.
For the kids' teachers I made "Love Potion". It was an extremely simple idea that I got from Kalleen over At Second Street. The teachers loved their "Love Potion". I even heard through the grapevine that they were showing it off to their co-workers. They loved them!
And the last treat I made was a big batch of chocolate covered pretzels. I found some of the cutest XO sprinkles to sprinkle over the chocolate. I was going to have the kids help but when I realized that Abby was sick I figured I had better make them myself so that we don't spread the germs. Anyway, I think they turned our adorable. And the kids we proud to hand them out along with their Valentine's Day cards.
I hope you have an awesome day celebrating with those that you love. Thank you so much for stopping by.
