Homemade Strawberry Cordials will make your Valentine's Day totally special. Who doesn't love strawberries and chocolate?
Can we discuss the weirdness that is “romantic” foods?
For some reason, certain foods have been deemed “romantic.”
Steak. Shrimp. Pasta and champagne. Who even makes these decisions, is what I want to know.
Was there a meeting on this that I missed? Because honestly, nothing holds the keys to my heart like a chili dog and some crispy French fries.
Because nothing says I love you like heartburn, cozy pants, and bad decisions, am I right?
I live in a small town, and Valentine’s Day around here is a complete nightmare. Hoards of nervous teenagers line up outside Olive Garden and Red Lobster with their dates, causing wait times of at least two hours.
I am just saying, there is nothing romantic about me after I’ve waited two hours to eat a few crab legs. My husband and I have learned that staying home is the best way to ensure that we don’t end up divorced, as I am not a very pleasant hungry person.
So we put the kiddos to bed a bit early, pick up some take-out, and enjoy it in front of a rented movie like the sensible older people that we are.
I do normally try to plan a special dessert at least, and I usually share it with the kiddos as well. We all love strawberries, and a few years ago my husband bought me some chocolate covered strawberries that were the best I’d ever had.
Instead of just having a chocolate coating, they also had a creamy white candy coating them, much like the filling in a cherry cordial.
I decided to attempt to replicate them at home, and the results were absolutely perfect.
If these don’t tell someone you love them, I don’t know what will. Enjoy!
