For Valentine's Day we decided to do something a little different. We were going to go cross country skiing, but then all of the snow melted. Not that I'm complaining, but seriously, when does that happen in Idaho in February? Anyway, since cross country skiing was out, we decided to go play racquetball and go out to lunch. It was so much fun!
Then that night, the two older kids got to stay up late with us and make pretzels. We originally were only going to let Ellie stay up, but when Nathan heard that Ellie was up he started crying from his bed. Sam went in to see what the matter was, and he said through big crocodile tears "I just want to stay up and help you in the kitchen." We couldn't resist that! So he got to stay up too.
We started out wanting to make heart-shaped pretzels, but we only made two of those and then resorted to pretzel bites. Much easier, and much yummier!
The recipe we use is so quick and easy! 30 minutes from start to finish.
Then on Sunday we made our traditional heart-shaped pizza for dinner. Delicious!
Happy late "Valentime" to you!
