When Steph and Liz made their splendid Gingerbread House at Christmas, there was some dough left over. Steph intelligently wrapped it and put it in the freezer, for me to make biscuits at a future date.
But Bob and I are trying to avoid snacks and biscuits right now, as the weight loss thing has stalled. Bob actually went for a run round the village this morning at 7am. How disciplined was that?
Today being Valentine’s Day, and the prospect of a romantic dinner is non-existent [due to Bob leading Session 4 of the ‘In His Name’ Course at church this evening] So I decided to bake the biscuits anyway and serve them to the course members with their coffee this evening [after all, they will not be ‘dining à deux’ either]
Here are my dishes of gingerbread hearts – along with the Valentine card I made for Bob at the EcoHouse Craft afternoon on Sunday.
Will you be preparing a Romantic Meal for anyone?
Did you get a card?
In case you are wondering, I did get a card – sort of – only it was actually more of a sermon illustration for Sunday than anything else.
And I was preaching elsewhere, so I am sorry, I am not altogether sure what Bob said about it! I sincerely hope that none of you received a card like this [on the back it says Multipack, not to be sold separately]
My first Valentine cost one-and-threepence from Woolworths [price label still on] and the chap concerned sent cards to at least four other girls in the Church Youth Group. Two of their cards were padded satin ones!
