How was your Valentine's Day friends? My man was away all day into the night hard at work (as usual), so I decided to treat myself to a special day filled with little things that make me smile.
First, I gave myself a manicure. I went with red- only appropriate.
Secondly, I made a tall stack of the best pancakes I've ever eaten. I do love a good blueberry pancake, and we happened to have buttermilk in the fridge, so I followed this recipe. Not to a T though (of course). I didn't want raspberry of course, nor any syrup other than maple. But, what I found curious about this recipe is that it directs you to separate the eggs, beating the whites to stiff peaks and then gently folding them in. Not only were these mighty tasty, but they were the lightest, fluffiest pancakes I've ever had!
Thirdly, I bought a bottle of pink moscato, and enjoyed it paired with a brownie sunday (I had homemade ice cream and brownies in the freezer just for this occasion of course) after dinner.
And finally, I decided to skirt work in the afternoon and treat myself to a TV marathon of Once on netflix, a since canceled series about fairytales that's pretty interesting and worth a peek if you like that sort of thing.
Question: Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day?
