Our Valentine's Day was busy and festive. Jackson had a party at his school. He came home with a sack full of treats and cards from his little friends (awww!) Our playgroup also had a party, which I attended with Olivia.
I made a couple of things for the parties. First, chocolate cookie balls. I see cake and cookie balls everywhere these days and I wanted to try my hand at making them. I used this recipe and it was incredibly easy. Got lots of compliments on these.
I also made the Garden Rotini Salad with Inner Goddess Dressing from Vegan on the Cheap. It is a favorite in our house, and I got a few requests for the recipe.
Since Valentine's Day is all about love, I thought it was only fitting to prepare the one dinner Tony and I love above all others -- the Vietnamese Seitan Baguettes with Savory Broth Dip from Veganomicon.
Heart-shaped straws added to our modest weeknight festivities. (Don't worry, Tony and I are going to have a date night, too, but we have to wait until this weekend!)
After dinner, we allowed the kids to dive into their goodie bags. My little sweethearts bypassed the traditional candy conversation hearts and went straight for the giant, heart-shaped marshmallow Peeps.
Hope you had a love-ly day, too!
