This year, we were able to find things around the house again, for the annual homemade valentine project. We created an easy valentine using potato stamps and classic rice krispies. I always am baffled how people go straight for rice krispies at bake sales so why mess with what the people want. I took the basic recipe and just replaced butter with coconut oil and a tsp of milk (because I realized that coconut oil and marshmallows do not mix), then adding a tsp of vanilla and a dash of salt.
I think I have always enjoyed Valentine’s Day because of the fine tradition of trading hand written greetings among friends and classmates. Who doesn’t appreciate receiving a sweet card? I just loved going through each card. The store bought ones were cute but I always marveled at the hand made greetings. And to this day, I still cherish a hand written card in the mail.
Happy card day, folks.
