Happy Valentine's Day, Our Way.-500th Post!
This is my 500th post! I am so happy to have met you all! Happy Valentine's Day to all! First, I would like to comment on Tavolini- they are getting married today! How romantic is that!!! I bless them both, as they are good people in deep, real love...I know these things.. Second, Otin and Blue Violet have found a bond I really think will last, forever.. Today is about love and caring..skeptics may leave now.
I have cared deeply for my wife and the mother of my children, for 36-1/2 years- she is the only woman that could put up with the likes of me. I am a load. I am a man's man..always playing cards, drinking too much, friendlier than I should be..but I always came home. Ladies and men..We won't change! Find someone that knows who you are. and accepts you as you are.. If we were perfect, they'd nail us to a cross.
The rest of this post will be food!
Valentine's Day is more of a weed-end with us.. it lasts longer than one day! my wife's favorite meal is stuffed pork chops,so Friday, that's what I bought and fixed..
I had high hopes for today, as far as a menu goes..Such are the plan of mice and men..What we ended up with is a dish of scallops, sauteed and seasoned, with a stupidly complicated salsa that was so good, along with rice..well, you had to be there.. I gave my wife a box of locally made chocolates, and she gave me a couple of needed shirts! I spoil her, and she looks out for me! Love is not about one day..It's about a lifetime..learn it, live it! My folks only made 64 years.. I hope my wife and I beat that record! May the good Lord bless you like I have been blessed!
May all have love in their lives, for all to see!
P.S. I used papaya, mango, pineapple, POM juice, and chili spices to create the best fruit salsa you ever had! This, with any seafood, is killer! POM is the Bomb!
