Valentine Fun

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day.  I am ready, are you? 

In the morning I will be up making a special breakfast I don't have time for scratch on school mornings.  However I found some great all natural orange cranberry scones I will shape into hearts and bake up in the morning.  I will prepare some potatoes into shreds for hash brown bake today. I will mix all the ingredients tonight so it is ready to pop in the oven in the morning.  Do a bit of decorating in the kitchen.  Once the kids are in bed I will put our their gifts at their place settings so while they are waiting on their hot scones and hash browns they will be opening their gifts.  

Hash Brown bake 
1 lb shredded potatoes (organic)
1cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. sour cream
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 tsp white pepper
5 dashes of hot sauce
Directions:  mix ingredients together.  Spray an 8 inch baking dish with olive oil.  Place ingredients in dish.  Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes.  

I have my husbands gift and card already to place out for him.  I love these little holidays.  Small gifts and fun. 

I may even make some chocolate strawberries if I can find some organic strawberries today.  I already tried one store but alas they did not have any.  So another great sweet fruit treat is pineapple.

This is so simple but so good.  And really pretty healthy.  Pineapple is a great aid in digestion.  

4 cups Cubed Pineapple
4 tablespoons Carmel Sauce

Put a cup of pineapple in each dish.  So you have four servings.  Look for a store bought carmel sauce sometimes you can find an all natural one.  Warm up Sauce and Drizzle one tablespoon over each serving of pineapple.  Serve and Enjoy. 

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
