Happy Hearts

Jimmy surprised me today with an extra special bouquet of flowers.  They're special because he made the arrangement himself at a charity event with all proceeds being donated to the Lois Hole Hospital for Women.  
He even upgraded to the fancier vase, because as he said to me upon presentation of the bouquet: "You're worth it!"  The funniest cutest part of the gift was the mugshot card that came along with it.  
It's a nice idea, but this card is a little strange.  It reminds me a little of a kindergarten student showing off their work. 
Jimmy has been so busy lately with his own lacrosse season starting up, coaching basketball at school, and coaching lacrosse in Leduc, that he was only home for a quick 15 minute dinner this evening between coaching responsibilities.  In honour of Valentine's Day I made his favourite dinner which was inhaled on his way out the door.  It's an Asian chicken salad from The Best of Bridge, and it's delicious and easy.  Just make the dressing, stir-fry some chicken, peppers, pea pods, and asparagus, and serve over rice noodles.  I forgot to take a picture before dinner, but here are the left overs.  
We're such healthy people, there are hardly any vegetables left.
Dressing for Asian Chicken Salad
from The Best of Bridge
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste

1. Place all ingredients in a jar and shake to mix.  If you're lazy like me, you can skip mincing the ginger and garlic and throw it all in the blender. 

When he returns later this eve, I plan to serve him this sweet treat that I found on Pinterest.  I'll let you know how mine turns out, but it looks delicious and is reminiscent of our first date.  
Hope you're enjoying something sweet today.
