Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Sunday is the best day for Valentine's to fall on. Besides 3 hours of church, we had the rest of the day to spend together with no other obligations to worry about. It was so nice! Andrew got me some pretty yellow roses, a bag of Resse's, and sparkling grape juice. I made him his favorite meal: hamburger stroganoff. For dessert we had Grapefruit Meringue. This was a new experiment for me. Here is a link to the recipe:

And a picture is worth a thousand words, right?!

I also made the best sugar cookies, ever! The recipe is supposedly the recipe for the big Grandma's sugar cookies. You know, the one's with the pink icing. Unfortunately, I didn't have any food coloring, so my icing is just white, cream cheese frosting. They are the best sugar cookies ever! Here's the recipe:
