Busog! Sarap! Valentine’s Day 2010…

You must be wondering how the TRIBE celebrated 2010 Valentine’s Day?  See, I said “TRIBE” not Cusinera and Mr. H, we don’t do candlelight dinners~holding each other hands and gazing at each other’s eyes, or me receiving bunches of flowers anymore……I put a stop to it when Miss M reached 3 years old, you know why? Flowers are expensive and they die, I prefer something practical, like cookbooks that I really want (you should see my eyes light up like New Year’s Eve fireworks).  Even a large mixing bowl will make my day!  Gosh, I’m so easy to please!  Candlelight dinners is a bit of a hazard, with Mr. Adventurous around  and the ambiance would be to serious for Mr. H and I, we would be giggling and poking each other too much.  With the issue of holding each other hands…we do that everyday and lots of hugs too, to the point of having a major overdose.  Come to think of it, we celebrate Valentine’s Day, everyday….

This Valentine’s Day, I was planning to cook some heart shaped pasta from ALDI but when we went there last Thursday, they didn’t have it.  Instead of a simple pasta dish, we ended up with these….

As you can see, I got carried away….just went a bit nuts, I think!  Wished that ALDI, did stocked the heart shaped pasta, would have been a 30 minute dish instead of me slaving in the kitchen for almost the whole day.  But you know what?  I wouldn’t have it any other way, as I observe the rest of the TRIBE happily tuckin’ in.  Miss M declaring that everything was delish! I love her to bits, she’s my ego booster!  Mr. Adventurous, shaking his butt and doing a weird dance (a sign, that he’s enjoying) while eating the mini springrolls.  Just looking at them makes Mr. H and I, very happy and contented that we produced wacky and weird children like us.  We feel very blessed, and think they’re the greatest gifts for all occasions for us.

So now, I want to greet you all…. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY ! ….enjoy this special day with your loved ones…
