Happy Valentine's Day

I cooked dinner tonight.  Bacon-wrapped venison backstraps, bacon-wrapped scallops, stuffed shrimp, chipotle remoulade, sliced sweet peppers, home-made hummus, and lightly toasted Afghan bread.  (Yeah, I know that much bacon was cheating, but as a very cute former classmate said, If you're not cheating, you're not trying, and if you're not trying, you're only cheating yourself!)  This was accompanied by Fetzer Chardonnay, that was good enough that I had a glass (I don't usually like Chardonnay).  Then I put my Bluetooth headset on and listened to my new 12 Gardens: Live Billy Joel CD while I tidied up in the kitchen.  And the night is young.  :-)   If you're in the area, the Springfield Butcher is a terrific place to pick up fresh meat, including venison.

I hope your day, if not as glorious, has at least been very pleasant.  
Happy Valentine's Day.

I sent several Valentines to several older ladies I figured otherwise wouldn't get any. I sent chocolate and cards to my family and got same in return.
Honey, that makes me smile and laugh at the sickle moon and say, "I got love in my life." Good day.

Good to hear from you, Charlotte. :-)

I think I may have accidentally deleted Old NFO's email...poor guy had to eat sushi.
