Love is Food and Food is Love

I decided to post a few yummy Valentine’s Day treats! Mentioning that there is absolutely no shame in making these for yourself either ~.^

I think food that is for any kind of love, should be comforting you. However, comforting food CAN BE HEALTHTY. Sometimes I’ll show my body some love, with fruit or a healthy snack. Comfort and “love” food can be healthy and unhealthy.

The first one I’m going to show you is chocolate biscuits! Sounds boring, but my partner and I (luckily) both love the Subway cookies. There’s usually a “fight” for that last biscuit. So this recipe is a bit of a variation of those cookies.

Fudgy-wudgy chocolate cookies

So while not exactly like Subway cookies, I actually found this recipe looking for them. I’ve had baked them a few times and they always go quickly.

Now, normally I have to buy these already made, because … well to be honest … I have no patience to wait =D Haha.

Croissants

Well, French is love … Right? And you can put so much on them! Eggs, jam, cheese, avocado, ham and cheese. And now you can make gluten free croissants.

Seafood … Well, I wont post a link to this. I am sure you all have recipes or meals with seafood, that you love. I’m not a big fan of any type of Oyster myself, but I hear they are a aphrodisiac.

What foods and treats make you feel all warm and gooey inside?

Not Valentines Day…

My partner and I have decided this year not to spend money on each other this year. What with him buying a new house and my dentist spending. Neither of us want to spend any money. Valentines is just not very “cost-effective” at the moment. Although my partners birthday is at the end of Feb. What I have been doing is researching into cost-effective ways for not only if you’re in a couple, but hey, there’s nothing wrong with spreading some self love too.

There’s one idea that I have, that I will share. I was ooh and arring with do I share. But I will, because you all might want it to do yourselves too.

  1. One plan I have, is that I have love heart shaped post it notes. Since I’m working tomorrow, I was going to randomly write quotes and then leave them around in different places. Not necessarily just at work, but since I’ll be travelling by bus. Just literally leaving them in random places.
  2. Of course if you grow your own flowers. Really making sure that you have some pretty flowers to either pick for yourself, a loved one or a partner.
  3. Making a nice dinner,  instead of buying. That’s my plan for this evening. I just have no idea what I’m making!lol. I was going to make a lasagna from scratch, but now I’m working all day.
  4. One thing that I used to love to do when I was single was watch my favourite “romance” movies – “Moulin Rouge” “Phantom of the Opera”. With bad food, so your pizza, maybe McDonalds, KFC.

 

Lovers where ever you are, where ever you come from <3

Today is apparently the day of love…Mainly for couples…I don’t really like celebrating it even when I’m in a couple to be honest. I’ve known far too many people in my life who’ve been depressing…almost suicidal…on this day because they’re single. Their depression has made me not particularly really like the day. Funnily enough, I am not friends with any of those people anymore. It’s just a “day”…and shouldn’t Valentines Day be every day really?

If you are one of those people who really doesn’t care about Valentines Day, we can totally be best buddies!

I think that it should just be called “Love Day”…like they do in the Simpsons.

That way we can just have a day to promote love, in all it’s forms…Love for you, love for me, love for everyone!

It’s okay

It is okay to be single on Valentine’s Day…I mean literally every single person on this earth has been single on Valentine Days and there is nothing stopping you from celebrating the day either…Do or Don’t it all good. It’s on a Tuesday as well. What a terrible day to have Valentine’s on anyways.

When I was single I still celebrated Valentines Day and it was great. I never did go out on my own though. If I did, forever whatever, was by myself on Valentine’s Day I would get myself a dinner. Which doesn’t really make it any different from any other night when I’m by myself. When I was single I celebrated Valentines Day by going out with my Mum, who is also single, and one time all of my single friends got together and we had the best time ever!

Look up the hashtag #ThereIsAlwaysMe. The idea is for the next week, in random places, leave inspiring notes for friends and strangers, randomly. I’m planning on doing it myself, please join me!

Valentines Day (another one)

Here comes another obligatory Valentines Day post. Let’s make it a short one hey since I have to go out and do the whole “Valentines’ Day” date thing.

Saint Valentine’s Day, also known as Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. A holiday observed on February 14th each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it is not a  public holiday in most of them.

I personally have never been a big fan of the day, I have never actually had a good one.

The last ex, we weren’t really dating at the time of Valentines Day. One before him, he started off good, then after work he forgot to come back and I found out that he had cheated on me on the same day too. The one before him we broke up on the last Valentines Day we were together and the year before that his friends ate my present and he never replaced it, I also had to spend all night with them too. The boyfriend before that lived overseas, so we were never together for the day any-ways.

So pretty much, as long as my teacher doesn’t cheat on me, or eat my present, he doesn’t really have a lot that he has to worry about to be honest, and we’ve had a good laugh about it. As he has also had nothing but disasters.

When I’ve been single on Valentine’s Day I have gotten together with either my Mum or a few single girlfriends (or friends) and gone out to dinner and movies ourselves and that was just as lovely, I have once felt alone on a Valentines Day.

Whatever you end up doing, or don’t end up tonight, don’t worry about it. It’s just another day and lets be honest, if you need one day to have romance in your life with your partner, man that would just suck! Romance should be all of the time (well maybe not ALL the time, but hopefully more than once a year!).
