Another Valentine’s Day has come and I decided not to celebrate it. We have two anniversaries this week, 9 years since our first date and 3 years since our wedding. It’s just two much to have 3 days to celebrate back to back.
We have somewhat of a tradition where I bring up the story of how I invited him to my friend’s house on V-day 9 years ago to watch a special 300th episode of the Simpsons. Little did he know I meant it as a date. It snowed. He didn’t come. I was a third wheel. Then he argues with me that it wasn’t Valentine’s Day. It’s easy enough to look up on the internet. But his memory is better than mine, and I like my version better.
I did, however, wake up this morning to a lovely email from my Mother wishing us a Happy V’day. That was sweet.
Three short paragraphs, and already I can hear the grumbling of men (in my head) disbelieving that I will not celebrate the day. Ha! I say, Ha! According to my records, we did NOTHING last year either!
Perhaps I should bake my hubby a little something. But we are both getting fat and I have lots of work to do. If any of you are in my neighborhood, please bring him cake! He loves that.
I, on the other hand, love pie! And lemon meringue is one of my favorites. I know I have already burdened you all with three of my favorite chocolate recipes. But below is one more step-by-step recipe for Valentine’s Day – a Lemon Meringue Tort from our friend at 2MiniCooks.
