Let's celebrate!

We toasted each other at our (early) Valentine's Day Dinner with Shirley Temples ~ a favorite with the kids. The rims of the glasses were dipped in lemon juice and then dipped in large red sugar crystals to decorate the glasses. A mixture of lemon-lime soda and cherry juice filled the glasses as we celebrated our special dinner. To offset the sugary beginnings, a healthy salad accompanied the meal with fresh salad greens, assorted veggie toppings, and cherry tomato halves graced the top of the salad. As everyone sat down to dinner, I could hear them exclaim, 'there are hearts everywhere'!
