Yesterday I thought that I would be nice and bring my coworkers some of the leftover cookies from Wednesday night. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who wanted to share some sweets because there were also Krispy Kremes and a strawberry buckle floating around. I had never heard of a strawberry buckle but I was told its a cake like thing made in a skillet. Idk but whatever it was, it was delicious. My cookies were gobbled up pretty quickly which is always a good sign. The rest of the day the whole office was in an intense sugar coma. Lunch was a hodgepodge of randomness since we are leaving town today and have zero groceries.
Bread and butter pickles are the best pickles in the whole world. Don’t try to argue that. You will lose.
After lots of internet searching for the perfect Valentines dessert, I settled on Dark Chocolate Merlot Cookies. Yup. You read that right.
These cookies were RICH and wonderful. The only change I made was dried pomegranates instead of cherries and I used 8 ounces of dark chocolate chunks instead of 10 ounces only because the bars came in 4 ounces. If you like dark chocolate and want to be happy, make these.
I tell Matt not to buy me Valentine’s Day gifts every year but he is convinced that I am playing some kind of girl trick on him and testing him so he insists on bringing me goodies. I am def not trying to trick him…but absolutely love my goodies.
When he gave me the goods he said “I know you like Greece, so here’s some spanikopita“. That’s my kinda logic. Also, note the head to toe red velour jumpsuit. I decided to dress like J. Lo from 1999 to really set the Valentine’s Day mood.
After presenting me my gifts Matt poured me a glass of wine and told me to relax while he cooked dinner:
A very happy Valentine’s Day indeed
What did you do for Valentine’s Day?
How do you like your chocolate?
The darker the better.
