Valentine's Day 2010











Yesterday was Valentine's Day. A day of Love and Romance. Since there is no one special in my life. My sister and I decided to do something for my parents.

  1. Make a Romantic dinner for two
  2. and Leave the House!!!
Mom and Sister #3 went out shopping, just for some fun, so Sister #3 picked up a great olive baguette along with some really tasty olive spread. I forgot the name of the spread. For supper, it was just something really simple. Well it didn't turn out simple. Normally I would consider myself a good cook. Not as good as my mom, but better than most. Who would have guessed that this meal would have presented so many roadblocks. The menu was this...
Spaghetti Squash, with mushroom marinara, chocolate vanilla pudding with heart shaped raspberries, micro green salad, and the yummy baguette.

Normally I cook spaghetti squash in the oven, but Mom said that you could cook it in the pressure cooker. Let's just say that we served them spinach linguine instead. =) That was only the first problem. We wouldn't let them see anything, so they were downstairs watching a movie. I am sure they must have thought that I was destroying the kitchen. I kept dropping everything, I mean everything! The last problem that had to be overcome with cunning and sly personality, which was almost not enough, was the pudding.... *Doom and Gloom music plays in the Background* We thought it would be really fun to make the two different flavors in a swirling type look. You know, Alternating between vanilla and chocolate. The first bowl was a flop. The 2nd ... I got the brilliant idea that the puddings should be in icing bags. I would turn the bowl while sister#3 would squeeze the bags. It didn't work. Puddings was shot everywhere except the bowl. But, it was fun to lick off our fingers! We left shortly after plating.

Thanks guys, I sure this story has a little bit of embellishment to it. I am sure the pudding didn't end up on the ceiling. . . That's my story and I am sticking to it! It was fun and I know my parents enjoyed it ;)

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins.

Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers.

Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
