Clint and I don't do much for Valentine's Day. At most, we say "Happy Valentine's Day" if we remember. We use to get eachother a card and a little something each year, but somehow silently agreed it was silly. I think that it's a holiday that's cool when you're in high school and your boyfriend brings or has flowers or some other suprise delivered to you. I suppose after you don't celebrate it for years and suddenly you actually do something, it makes it more exciting as well.
That is what I decided to do this year. This morning I decided to deliver a Valentine's Day themed lunch to my hubby at work with Jude. By his reaction, I think he liked it a lot. I used my bento that I love so much to layer all the elements on top of one another. I blogged about this wonderful bento here.
Here's what his lunch consisted of:
Layer one was a HUGE heart shaped brownie-freshly baked, a banana with "I am banana's for you" written on it and a salad underneath. The salad had heart shaped cheese and tomatoes that spelled out "I love you".
Layer two had (2) Heart shaped sandwiches, fresh strawberries, a fruit crisp and his Raspberry Vinegarette salad dressing.
Layer three was just (2) Valentine's Day cookies, his fave kind of cupcake (Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting), and I cut and molded one of his Fiber One bars into a heart.
