"Ground bison patty, bacon, Swiss & cheddar cheese, sautéed mushroom & onion, fried egg, and chipotle aioli, on a brioche bun".
After that, we plan on going bowling and then just relaxing with each other the rest of the evening. Wish me luck in winning at the bowling game--we're both very competitive. Bowling balls might fly.
Here's a recipe I thought would go quite well with Valentine's Day if you're looking for a really quick and easy treat. I've made it before for a Dietetics graduation party and it was a big hit! Many people asked me for the recipe. It may not be the "healthiest" treat, but it's certainly got a lot less calories and fat than many other Valentine's Day sweets out there.
Cinnamon Candy Popcorn
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
4 quarts air popped, plain popcorn
4.5 oz red hot candies (about half of a bag)
In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine the butter, corn syrup, and red hot candies. Continue to stir until the red hots are melted and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes and continue to stir occasionally.
Pour the heated liquid over the popped popcorn in a large bowl and toss quickly to coat. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Grease 2 large baking pans and pour the popcorn onto each pan. Spread out the popcorn evenly on the pans. Place in oven to bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from pan and place on waxed paper to cool.
You can then break apart the popcorn and make sure to pick out any kernels. Wouldn't want anybody to bite into one of those. Store in airtight containers.
And now I will leave you with a couple of my favorite love quotes. Remember: Valentine's Day isn't just for couples. And just because you're single doesn't mean you can be grumpy and/or sad on this holiday either. Spreading love to friends, family, and just strangers you come in contact with in every day life is just as important. Celebrate and share some love this Valentine's!
