Workout: Upper body with 5-pound weights and 2.25-mile walk with Denali
Happy Valentine’s Day! Denali wanted to give you something special so he gave this balloon lots of kisses … for you. He’s so sweet like that.
Or, if you aren’t into slobber, you come to my house and snag one of Mark’s Valentine’s Day treats.
Chocolate-covered strawberry cake balls. I promise they taste a bajillion times better than this photo. Yellow kitchen lighting and my lack of skills never bode well for food shots.
Anyway, always one to fall in love with Jessica’s recipes, I was struck by the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake Ball – or truffle as you call them … or pop if you put a stick in it. Whatever. Mark is a huge fan of cake balls, especially my cookies and cream version, so I thought it would be a lovely treat for the celebration of love.
He agreed. At least on Saturday, when I gave them to him (along with his $10.99 container of Joseph Decuis clam chowder).
Tonight, they failed to seduce him so I'll give them to you if you'll be my valentine.
Yep, that’s him eating ice cream out of the container. So much for my romantic cake balls.
Do you bake treats for your significant other as a gift? Did your evening top the excitement of the Healthy Strides’ Cheeseburger Meatloaf (made with ground sirloin, 2 percent cheese and egg substitute) and “The American'” (I am so bored I could cry)?
