I'm not making fun. I promise. I think we just put too much thought on the gift and not the reason for it. How much more fun would it have been if they had just spent time together making chocolate cookies?
I still think the homemade stuff rules far above the rest. My crew is all trying to make something that only they make... the pursuit of something chocolate that they can make for the family. I have one that has perfected brownies. We all had to beg the other night, and she caved. Brownies and milk... even she was glad she did it.
I have one that has decided fudge would be her creation of choice.
Today daughter #3 wants to make chocolate muffins. We shall see how these turn out.
It's fun to watch my crew finding the things they like to create. It's not just about how proud I am, no... it really is about the chocolate.
Valentine's Day is tomorrow. Make room for chocolate in your day.
Oh, one last thing. I had a book signing on Saturday and I was able to find Hershey Kisses that match the cover of FRIDAY LUNCH. Nothing beats chocolate to attract people to your table.
