Breakfast in Bed.  For Dinner.
This year I partnered up with The Chalkboard to create a new way to celebrate Valentine’s Day: breakfast in bed, for dinner.  While Valentine’s Day is all about the sexy lingerie, it’s also a fun excuse to wear pj’s to dinner and stay cozy under the sheets.  Greg is normally the breakfast maker in our house, so I needed a new menu item to impress him.  Crepes were a fun solution and really couldn’t be simpler (I learned how to make them in my seventh grade home-ec class!).  In order to avoid any up and down between the bedroom and kitchen, I served an assortment of chocolates for dessert.  After all, when else are you going to treat yourself to such a pretty treat?  Amy made me a very sweet menu that also served as my valentine to Greg (check our her pretty valentines at The Chalkboard).  You can also get my how-to’s and recipes for ham & gruyere crepes and the frisee, bacon & egg salad at The Chalkboard.  Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day filled with love, hearts and romance!
