I made our Valentine's plans for Saturday. I took a bit of a different twist on it: we are doing some more casual type things. First, I booked our dinner at....
Bob was stunned. No, I mean the type of stunned that converts to being speechless. Not a usual pattern for Bob, nope, not at all. What might have made me book at White Castle?
I read a bunch of fun articles last year in the newspaper about how White Castle goes all out to decorate for Valentine's Day, including tablecloths and napkins, prints a menu and seats you at a table. I also talked to a New Town friend who has actually gone to White Castle on Valentine's Day. That sound like FUN to me. I do FUN. And, we happen to have tickets to the Beach Boys afterwards...it sounded like a nice combination of events. We might even wear jeans.
After the Beach Boys we'll have dessert at home. Both Bob and I are watching our intake carefully (so we'll have to plan for our White Castle burgers!) so I thought I could make a dessert that would be less fattening than the ones at a restaurant and I did find the one I plan to make.
I'll share the recipe later, but I will hint that it has chocolate and avocados in it. Intrigued?? Recipe and photo from As Easy As Apple Pie blog.
