No, no… this isn’t going to be another political post.
(Though I AM seeing red over this shitshow.)
Today is a day of Valentine’s eats! Starting with these awesome red wine gummy bears.
I told Vegas I made them as part of her Valentine’s present… but I may have had selfish motives.
A quick google search led me to this recipe. I mostly followed her recipe, though I reduced the sugar by about a tablespoon. I shocked myself when they turned out! They were really easy to pop out of these cute bear molds I bought on Amazon. I can’t wait to experiment with other flavors!
Vegas LOVES french toast. I made her a batch for breakfast with some bacon (the real deal – we’re done with the turkey experiment). We also exchanged gifts. I got roses and a TON of Reese’s. They’re my favorite. 🙂
We ate breakfast super late (like at 11am), so lunch was also late. It consisted of a Quest bar on the way to the gym. And maybe a few Reese’s. Oops…
I made up for my lack of lunch with a massive dinner at One Door North. It’s a really cool place in North Park that’s set up as a camp-style dining experience. Without this discomforts of actual camping. Just my speed! We loved the safari-themed decor, including tables framed with tents.
We split a burrata and beet salad. I had the mussels with fries. Vegas had the flat iron streak. I may or may not have eaten half her steak. We also split the molten chocolate cake for dessert. Neither of us shared out wine though. 😉
Those red wine gummy bear are the gift that gives beyond Valentines’ day.
What flavor gummy bears would you make?
How was your Valentine’s Day? Do anything fun?
