happy valentines day

14 Feb

45 minutes till the day is over so I guess I can still say that!
Hope you guys all had a great day…whether you had a valentine or not!
Our day started out pretty normal…church and then home for lunch.
I decided to make husb Pioneer Woman’s doughnuts as a Valentine treat.014

They turned out pretty good…despite the fact that they refused to rise on there own!
She isn’t kidding about them needing a nice warm environment.
I found a good tip in the comments section…
preheat the oven to 250 degrees, turn the oven light on, then turn the oven off.
Place the donuts inside the oven with door cracked.
I did this after about 4 hours of them not rising…it worked.
I also used maple extract instead of vanilla…cause husb loves a good maple glazed donut.
Overall they were pretty good.
They absorbed a little too much oil…might have been an oil temperature problem?
Husb liked them and that’s really all that counts😉

Then we decided to go to a late dinner at The Repp.
However, before leaving for dinner I came across The Great Date Experiment on Katie’s blog.
Husb and I laughed at the first “point” and decided to do it.
We had to kiss at a red light until the car behind us honked and I had to yell out the window “my husband is hot!”.
The picture below is from one of the other “points”…but I’m not going to spill the beans on what the directions were incase some of you want to do it with your spouse.

It was a lot of fun…made us laugh and made for a perfect Valentines Day!
The next date is in March!
I think we are hooked.
