I'm one lucky gal! Our dear daughter asked if she could make dinner for us last night as her Valentine's gift to us. Could she?! When (and why) would I ever turn down an offer like that?
Macaroni and cheese is one of my favorite dishes (carbo loader that I am) and hers is to-die-for. Made with whole wheat pasta and a combination of asiago and white cheddar cheese with homemade croutons on top . . . oh, my, scrumpdillyitious! As an extra added bonus, I still have half the casserole in the refrigerator to finish up today. (Hee-hee.)
My hubby surprised me with a sweet little floral arrangement. A miniature cyclamen (had never seen one of those) and a gorgeous violet in an attractive wicker basket. (He may or may not have had assistance in obtaining same from our local floral shop. The thought is definitely there, but shopping for such is not!)
We capped off the evening by watching the latest James Bond flick, Skyfall. Chicken Mama pronounced it the best one starring Daniel Craig yet. Me? Call me a geriatric old fuddy-dud, but I'd still take Sean Connery if he were yet available.
Our last Christmas gathering
