Valentine's Day feast

Valentine's Day feast - she's my watermelon expert

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a feast of wholesome red and pink foods? Watermelon, strawberries, hibiscus tea, and perhaps a mango or two, if they are handy.

Valentines Day is just a subtle whisper on the north wind down here in Mexico. With no Hallmark, no florists, and no candy hearts, Valentines Day is a chill deal. I must say, I don't envy all of you who were "required" to make 20+ valentines for classroom events. Although, I sure wouldn't mind some of these cupcakes - please and thank you! I can even eat them in style on my plate.

May you celebrate love and friendship wherever you are.

Beautiful pictures as always Meg.

Valentines is fairly low key round here too - i was amazed to discover how big it is in the US!

Got my patterns - many thanks. Now to the fabric choosing.....

Oh, those eyes. You must melt everyday while at work.

And I love the apron over the smock. That is some serious important work.

How beautiful is she? It's easy to forget the point of valentine's day when you're surrounded by stores full of stuffed bunnies and enormous cards - but you've managed to keep the essence of it pure.

Yummy pictures ! Beautiful colors, one can almost taste that melon. And that cook is just too cute also!

Love the banana apron!

I am surprised Valentine's Day is so chilled in Mexico. I taught for nine years in a school where the majority of the students were Mexican American. Valentine's Day was a huge holiday and I often had two boxes full of gifts to bring home:)
