Valentine's Day dinner....

we never do anything "romantic" for valentine's day.
we always include the kids.
this year was no different.
i grabbed some tulips for $5 (because they made me think spring. and health!)
and i grabbed some sparkling grape juice.
i pulled out some wine glasses the mom made for chris and brenda's wedding
and of course i pulled out the LOVE tablecloth.
and viola!5

paul and i had portabellas.
he made his into a lettuce wrapped.
we marinated the portabellas in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, salt, pepper and garlic for a few hours.
grilled them on our weber.
also grilled red pepper halves.
added avacodo to the mix and YUM!
i also made homemade baked french fries.
tossed the sliced potatoes with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.
baked at 425 for about 30 minutes.

and i made heart-shaped hamburgers for the kids.
they giggled.

it was a good dinner.
but brigg was very sick.
he sat with us for like 5 minutes and then went back to sleep on the couch.
wasn't a perfect valentine's day be any means.
but we enjoyed what we could.
there was lots of love.
we went around the table and talked about what we loved about each of the kids.
they were happy.
and now they are all on hopefully we'll be back to normal by the weekend!

happy belated valentine's day!!
