My Sweet Valentine
I hope everyone had a lovely day yesterday, whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not. For me, it was just like any other day - staying at home and working. But I still wanted to do something sweet for my boyfriend (literally!) so I spent a few hours in the kitchen. He loves combining sweets with salty things, so I made him chocolate covered pretzels. There really isn't a recipe, you just melt chocolate and dip the pretzels in it. It's not really fast, but it's easy and if you like to multitask, just like I do, then you'll find this a pleasant thing to do. I used white and milk chocolate and added some colorful sprinkles on top. The result was pretty good I must say! I definitely recommend trying it out. I made a huuuuuge bowl, so we ate some last night while we watched our favourite TV shows and I packed the rest so he could take them to work the next morning.
As for him, he showed up on my doorstep with some beautiful flowers. I haven't been feeling well in the past few days, so they really cheered me up. Also, we'd decided that we would stay home and perhaps order some food. But the sweet and thoughtful man that he is, he actually went to all of my favourite restaurants and picked up my favourite things from each one. He got me soup from one, a salad from another, 2 different desserts, pizza and sushi. He spent almost 2 hours going from one place to another. It was so sweet!
So yeah, that's my Valentine's story. I really hope you had a wonderful day and if not - I hope today is one! xo
