My daughter wrote me this poem couple years ago for Valentine’s Day and it’s been on the wall beside my bed. I thought I would share it here.
“What is love? What is special? It’s Mom No matter what she is, I love her No matter what she looks like, I love her With a balance family, she is the Best Mom Ever! “
This is definitely the sweetest poem I’ve ever read ! My daughter is such a lovely girl. She is creative, funny, outgoing, but also very sensitive. I love her so much ! Of course I love my son too, but I guess it’s unlikely a twelve year-old boy would write his mom a poem….. 😁 To treat my two little sweethearts, I made these heart-shaped meringue cookies. They are light, crunchy and super easy to make.
Happy Valentine’s Day ! I got a Valentine’s card before I even got out of bed this morning from my daughter, how sweet ! And here is a sweet treat that I made last night, yummy chocolate fudge ! Classic chocolate fudge requires the chocolate to be heated to a precise temperature which can be tricky. This recipe is much easier and it tastes just as good.
Makes about 16 ounces
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup condensed milk
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Put chocolate, cocoa powder, butter, condensed milk and salt in a large heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water
Cook and stir until all melted
Turn heat off, stir in vanilla extract
Spread evenly in a container lined with slightly greased parchment paper or aluminum foil
