Valentines Day Plans

For some reason, this year I have been more excited about Valentines Day. Maybe it's because of all the fun ideas out there for decorating and activities. I think our day will be pretty low-key, but here is what I have planned.

Breakfast:
Pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream. I plan to use a heart cookie cutter to punch little hearts into the pancakes.

Lunch:
Quesadillas shaped into a heart. If I'm feeling really brave, I might write a message on them - conversation heart style.

Dinner: I want to do a traditional red and white dinner, but I haven't decided what yet. I'm thinking maybe turkey with cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and a red vegetable. Are there red vegetables? Maybe we'll just do cranberry juice with it and call it good.

I'd like to make and frost some sugar cookies too, but we'll see how far we get. It will be fun that Valentines is on a Saturday so the family can all be home together to celebrate!

My first thought was beets, but I don't know if they're more purple-y than red.

But I agree, sounds like an awesome Valentine's Day! Can I come over??
