February 15, 2013

We have had a tradition at our house of making heart shaped pizzas for Valentine’s Day.  While pizza is still a staple of our home, I thought I would switch it up at the last minute this year and we had a bacon celebration!  Even the fact that I actually cooked a whole, yummy meal that appealed to every family member was quite an event… Throw a little bacon in anything and even my pickiest eater will eat it with a smile!!  I have been wanting to try maple bacon cupcakes for quite some time, so I finally whipped some of those up, and decided to try meatballs wrapped in bacon, too.  The cupcakes were definitely unique ~ they were just kind of like a weird bacon muffin without the frosting, but they were good and everyone loved them!  The meatballs were definitely fantastic.  I even drizzled a little of our Head Country barbecue sauce on top for a little extra sweetness…

You would think our Valentine’s Day festivities are always just about food… hmmmmm….  I do love food, but my sweet hubby and I did exchange cards and he even brought me some gorgeous flowers, too!!Valentines Day 2013

It is cold right now.  But spring is a comin’.  And that means the class of 2013 will be getting ready to graduate!  I seriously enjoy spending time with high schoolers, and being able to meet seniors and have a photo session with them is beyond fun for me.  This gorgeous senior has impressed me so much with her leadership and caring spirit at her school.  And along with hanging out with Emma, I got to meet her sweet family, and now have new friends.  Have I expressed lately how much I love my job?? 😉

Congratulations, Emma!
