a man's valentine card...or patriotic?

i didn't mean to use red, white &'s actually tulip & spring iris...hmmm.....a 6x6 card that caught my eye in the card book from CTMH. I used the sticker letters, some 3d pop dots, liquid glass....i like it...but not what i imagined, not that any card is ever what i imagine!

Tonights meal...Asian beef lettuce wraps

Courtesy of Everyday Food the Jan/Feb Issue. It uses flank steak...which was thick so I cut it in half to thin it out a bit. Then lime juice, garlic & scallions to flavor noodles & wrap. I forgot the mango...which is probably fine by brian. And the kids did I! THe noodles stink when they are cooking...gag. Luckily they suck up flavor so they tasted good w/ the juices!

I had an amazing dessert tonight...

sometimes I NEED chocolate...not want, or desire...but NEED...and the urge is SO strong I cannot help but make a treat. So tonight i made this...Hershey's (R) Hot Fudge Pudding Cake - Allrecipes and it was SO easy. It took about 10 minutes to put together...and about 30 minutes to bake. It sure doesn't 'look' pretty...but tasted like heaven!
