This year we had a very LOW KEY Valentine….my kids were so busy with after school activities that I just planned it around their schedule. My 3 little ones had tennis practice after school until 4:30 pm and Ethan had a birthday party that was schedule from 4:00-7:00pm. So, I picked them 3 up from tennis practice and dropped Ethan off at his friends birthday party. Since we had until 5:30 to pick up Madison from school. After I dropped off Ethan at the bday party…I took the 2 girls to grab some ice cream at a Creole Creamery…. while we waited to pick up big sister. Since they couldn’t decided on which flavor to get…we got the 6 small scoops so they can get 6 different flavors and share it…problem solved 😉
After we grabbed Madison we headed home and had a little snack until Ethan came home to have our Valentine Dinner…I made a little cheese board and the kids made PIZZA. I got the dough from Trader Joe’s. In my opinion …I think they have the BEST PIZZA DOUGH!!!
After I picked up my son from his friends bday party…I cam home and put my steak on the grill (I used an indoor grill pan). In the morning I prep my steak and SOUS VIDE them…so all I had to do was put them on the grill for a few minutes and they COOK PERFECTLY!!! I season my steak very simple… prime rib seasoning, salt, fresh cracked pepper, and some garlic powder. DON’T forget to rub a little olive oil on the steak before you season them. Then I used my food saver and sealed it with a piece of rosemary. I set the temp to 130 on my sous vide and let it run for about 3 hours.
We ended the night with a little Hallmark Movie and some popcorn. I think as I get older….I just want to spend this BEAUTIFUL day with my family. No need for flowers or candies…just spending some time with them is all I WANT!!! <3 I hope you guys had the best VALENTINE ever 🙂
