    How do you guys celebrate Valentines day with your children? I like to

    fix heart pancakes and pink mashed potatoes as well as strawberry milk!

    Any other suggestions on what to cook for that day?/

    Strawberry shortcake



    heart shaped grilled cheese or any sandwhich



    Little Debbie's has these strawberry swirl snack cakes, and I think

    they look really pretty sliced (so you can see the swirl) and used as a

    yummy garnish in a bowl of icecream.



    Yogurt smoothies dyed pink or dyed with strawberries or other red fruit



    You chould spell out I love you in chicken nuggets or fries or tater

    tots. I guess just about any small finger food would work for it,

    We loved going to the Melting Pot (only been there

    twice)....But it's soooo costly. So, I'm planning on

    doing a really nice fondue for dinner using a copycat

    Melting Pot recipe. Mmmmm...

    We have gone to Melting Pot for all our anniversaries

    and on our first Valentines Day together. It is super

    yummy.



    I have made the cody cat cheddar cheese fondue before

    that I found online and it tasted EXACTLY like Melting

    Pot!!!

    Many years ago when my kids were younger I used to bake heart-shaped

    sugar cookies for V-Day, or a heart-shaped cake for dessert. A couple

    of times when they were teens, I made each one a big Toll House pan

    cookie in a foil heart-shaped cake pan. Another year I made each one a

    foil heart-shaped pan of Rice-Krispie treats. I also made "finger

    jello" and cut it out with a heart shaped cookie cutter.

    Visualy, I can't eat food that's the wrong color, so while the pink

    mashed potatoes sounds neat, there's just no way I could eat it or

    serve it.



    Valentine's Day is on a Thursday this year, but the kids have the 15th

    & 18th off for a mini-Winter Break. I'm planning to use my hear shaped

    cookie pan to make a heart shaped pizza, and we'll probably have

    strawberry or cherry sugar free jello for dessert, and red juice to

    drink. They'll have enough of a sugar buzz from school without me

    adding to it.



    I'm thinking of getting them each a small ballon bouquet at Dollar Tree

    for when they get home from school, too.



    We'll probably rent a movie or order something from On Demand that

    night for them to watch, too.



    And because I'm lazy and haven't taken down my white Christmas tree

    yet, I'm considering removing most of the ornaments (I decorated it in

    just red, white, and silver, but most the ornaments are Christmas

    looking), and putting red paper heart doilies on it, to decorate it for

    Valentines day. Yes, I'm just plain lazy.

    Well, since he is so young, he will not notice it. I may get some Hershey's Kisses in Valentine wrappers and give him a couple. Heart shaped pancakes or cookies, maybe a batch of Rice Krispies Treats for my hubby though. He loves RKT and I can't figure out why anyone would spend the money to buy the ready-made ones at the stores. They are incredibly simple to make from scratch. Herlean

    I think they turn out better handmade, too.



    At Christmas, I bought the frosted Rice Krispies, and they turned out

    great- it wasn't a very noticable difference, but they tasted good. I

    have some red sugar sprinkles, which would look good sprinkled on top

    while the marshmallow is still gooey. At Christmas, I added some red

    and some green.



    You can also make so many different varieties- I'll add chocolate chips

    to melt in with the marshmallow, or add it to the cereal for chocolate

    chunks in it.



    Darn, now I'm in the mood for it, and I don't have the stuff to make

    it!
