It's Valentines day! Yeah!
It's really the first holiday I participate in after the big overwhelming event that Christmas and New Year's can be. Well actually its the only holiday between Christmas and now but whos checking.
Anyway, I usually do not try to take on any projects from December 26 on because I really just cannot. I'm just to exhausted. Honest.
But Valentines Day.. well just a little bit of effort goes a long way.
My boys like one thing for Valentines Day. Strawberries. Chocolate strawberries to be exact.
I've been making them for my little dudes for years now. They love them.
It's also super easy to do.
Two ingredients. Strawberries and Chocolate. What could be more simple? Nothing really.
Get the good Chocolate. It's better. I promise.
Give it a good chop.
Then into a double boiler. Yum. Lots of chocolate! It's good for you. I promise.
Over medium low heat and then you can just melt away. I like to melt. Melting is good.
Continue to stir. It takes a minute or two but you will get there. I promise. I make a lot of promises dont I?
Lovely chocolate all melted down. Now you are ready to take a dip.
It's helps to purchase the strawberries with the long stems. Easier to hang onto. I promise.
Then go for it.
Make sure to cover a good bit of the berry. It tastes and looks better. Promise.
And there you have it.
So simple. But keep going. I'm a huge advocate of the no berry left behind program so go ahead and cover every last one of them. It's a must. You wont regret it. I promise.
Then let them do this.
And this. It's what life is all about really. Sorta.
And just for good measure throw in something like this.
Cause every skater dude needs a little skateboard love on V day.
Especially when it has anything to do with one of their favorite skaters.
See how happy it makes them.
Oh how I love my skater punks. They are so super sweet.
So it's true. Just a little love goes a long way.
Happy Valentines Day to all my peeps. I really do love you.
Over and out
