Monday Micro: Now this is how to celebrate

For Valentine's Day we ordered take-out from Carrabba's, and the ordering process was so cool. Saturday we went to their website and entered our entire order online. Sunday The Engineer headed down there while I got the kids to bed, and they brought the food to his car, where he also paid. I didn't even have to pick up the phone, and he didn't even have to get out of the car!

We opened a $10 bottle of wine (that probably would have cost $25 in a restaurant), and I spent about $4 on the ingredients for these hand-made yummies:

I hope your day was a sweet one!

Mmmm, strawberries :D We had a quiet day at home, it was lovely. Going out on Valentines is almost guaranteed to be a disaster in my experience...

The strawberries are darling! Sounds like you had a very special evening, without having to get a babysitter and without having to get all gussied up. Perfect!

That sounds like my kind of Valentine's celebration!! Great idea! I love the strawberries. Got any left? :)

Total side note! Just tried the olive oil dough this weekend. Oh my. A fave for sure! Did the onion, rosemary foccacia (sp??) bread and then pizza. Wow. Do you make that one??

Happy Hearts Day to you!

That sounds like a perfect date - and all the more because it was so low stress. And oh those strawberries are making my mouth water!
