Saturday Special – Look What the Hubs Did!

Valentine's Day was a real treat this year! The hubs and I don't usually do a lot, but this time he did the absolute sweetest thing. He made a brunch menu with all kinds of tasty goodies and let me choose which ones I wanted him to make. And they weren't choices like cereal, folks! It was fancy!

Here is what I choose: 
Starter: Scottish Oat Scones (with cream and jam)
Starter: Goat Cheese Salad (I wanted two starters, don't judge)
Savory: Apple Bacon Cheddar Frittata
Sweet: Challah French Toast
Beverage: Breakfast Tea and Peach Bellini

I haven't been feeling very well the last few days (cold or something), so this was so nice. We just took the whole day off and watched movies together and ate a progressive brunch. He even took out the pretty china! Man, I love this guy!

  20. Wow Jamie! Your hubby is amazing. How sweet! :) So happy you had a special day. My dear hubby has been sick so we got caught up on some of our fave shows. But he did give me flower seeds. You know how excited I am to get out there & plant so I was really happy to receive them. Hope you are feeling better. :)

  24. This is gorgeous! I was the chef on Valentine's day this year, but still had a great night :) Looks like you're a lucky lady to have a man that can cook those kind of things! Mine's kitchen abilities only go so far as bacon and eggs haha. Thanks for following, by the way. I'm now returning the favour xx
