Valentine's Weekend

I always get sad when the weekend comes to an end. Everyone knows Mondays and I are not exactly friends. Maybe one day I'll learn to embrace day.

On Friday night, K and I went out for dinner to celebrate Valentine's day. We had some wine, calamari and I ordered roasted duck for my entree. After dinner we went home and popped open a bottle of champagne then dusted off our wedding flutes and had a relaxing night watching movies. 

On Saturday morning, I went to get my hair done and then stocked up on some groceries for the week & to entertain K's sister and boyfriend who were coming into town to visit us.

I made cheese fondue as an appetizer and K grilled ribs and turkey burgers. We had a great time catching up with my sis-in-law and hanging out at the house.

Sunday was a perfectly lazy day. We cooked brunch for our guests before they headed out to drive back home. K and I just hung out at home and relaxed.

Later that night I tried my hand at making Shepherd's Pie which will be featured on the blog tomorrow for my new Tuesday's Recipe Swap. It was so incredibly delicious!

Feel free to linkup tomorrow with your favorite recipes. I'm excited to start my very first linkup and hope we can have fun sharing and finding new recipes!
