As what I have planned for the Valentine’s Day, we did not go to a restaurant for a dinner date. Instead I made a simple dish Ground Beef Stew with potatoes and carrots, steamed asparagus with cheese dip, baked country style ribs, and rice. My husband ordered Mixed Vegetables with Shrimp to-go from Ming Moon Restaurant, a Chinese restaurant in town. I bought a chocolate fudge cake for dessert from Walmart. My cousin and her family came over and she brought cupcakes and Spring Rolls. So our Valentine’s Day dinner was solved without the stress of waiting for a seat in the restaurant and pressure from driving.
Our neighbors’ daughter knocked on the our door and gave us these lovely cookies and a cute little cupcake. She said she and brother designed them. I think that’s sweet.
