Rose shaped pizza muffins…droooooooool

Pizza + muffin = happiness… ♥

I am not a big Valentine’s day gal, never been, never will. Ben and I don’t give each other presents, don’t buy anything, but we go on a walk together, a hike, go and grab dinner or watch a movie. So nothing fancy, mostly just like any other day and I like that a lot.

All day Saturday I was on a training event, left at 6 am and didn’t get home until 10-ish pm. So I was tired and very very hungry when I got home. They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well…that is true for me too. 🙂

I got home exhausted from the event and driving for hours and when I stepped into the house, all I could smell was something delicious. Had no idea what could it be, but I knew I was going to eat a lot from it. 😀

Ben knew I was going to be tired and hungry, so he surprised me with dinner. I asked him what he was making but all he said was that it is a surprise and that since tomorrow was Valentine’s Day, I can look at it as him giving me 12 roses…

Wait…what? Did you bake some roses for dinner? He goes: yupp! You will love it…

But I was not so sure about that. However, I was kind of loving the fact that after a long day of work, all I had to do was just sit on the couch, cuddling Echo, waiting for dinner…and to be honest, at that point, I would have eaten some real roses too without blinking an eye.

So he goes to the kitchen, disappears for a couple minutes and comes back with a plate full of pizza muffins, that are rose shaped. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???????

I was so incredibly impressed and hungry that I could not find any words. What an amazing gesture????!!!! I honestly don’t care about getting expensive gifts or receiving 500 red roses in front of the door, but having dinner made for me after a tough day and having dinner made for me with this cute little surprise???! That is all I need! After dinner he did the dishes and just when I thought it was the best dinner surprise EVER, he showed up with some chocolate dipped fruit…

He made chocolate dipped strawberries, apples and Cuties. They were so delicious!!!!!!! Our favorites were the Cuties, you must try them! I will write a post on how to make them…not because it is so complicated or because you would not be able to figure it out on your own, but mostly because I MUST make them again…SOON….very very soon. 😀

Just like we did with the pizza haha…I lasted for a whole day before I really wanted to make them again, so this is what we had for dinner Monday night!

Here is the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

2 rolls of pizza crust dough
Salami (We used turkey salami)
Pizza sauce
Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Open up the pizza dough and put the pizza sauce, salami, and cheese on top of it

Perfect Snowy Day Snack(s)

Today we almost had a snow-day! The weather was crazy outside, it snowed ALL day without stopping…

Unfortunately the snow fall screwed up Echo’s potty training a little bit, because little guy couldn’t believe we actually made him walk in the cold…however he likes the snow to some extent…he loves eating it…he just loves water no matter what.

But since it was cold and beautiful outside, it was a perfect “let’s cozy up on the couch with a hot chocolate and some cookies” night!

So I looked around for some ingredients to make some chocolate chip cookies. Luckily we had everything I needed:

INGREDIENTS – For about 15 cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup coconut palm sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chip
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup chia seeds

DIRECTIONS are luckily pretty easy, I preheated the oven to 325 degrees and then I just threw everything into a bowl, mixed them together and let them sit on the side while I prepared the baking sheet. I applied some coconut oil to the bottom of it, so the cookies won’t get stuck and then formed 15 little cookies and placed them on the sheet.

Put them into the oven for 12 minutes and after that I let them sit on the side for a little bit (which required some strong will-power) while I made some hot chocolate from #SoDelicious Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk and SoDelicious Nog Coconut Milk…IMG_1615_Fotor_Collage

When the milk warmed up we were ready to grab some cookies, put Harry Potter on and enjoy the snowy day!
