After I showered and took a quick 30 minute nap, Todd & I started our Valentine's Day celebration. Well, I guess it started last night because he brought me some flowers and even though we weren't giving presents, I couldn't help but buy him a Dayton Flyers shirt since he doesn't have one. We also gave cards to each other which is really all I ever want. Fyi, I love Hallmark.
We had a quick lunch at Winking Lizard before going to see Valentine's Day at the movies and eating lots of popcorn. I really liked this movie especially because all the story lines were intertwined, similar to Love Actually, one of my fave movies. A few of the story lines were predictable but there was one part at the end I wasn't expecting that had me tearing up.
After the movies, we went to Whole Foods to pick up some ingredients for our fondue. We had some prepping to do, such as grating all the cheese for the cheese fondue as well as making the soft pretzel balls for dipping before actually making it. We started with Four Cheese & Artichoke Fondue with soft pretzel balls & french bread slices for dipping. The four cheeses included goat, asiago, gruyere, and parmigiano reggiano. It was delicious!

We planned on then having our main course (no fondue required) which we bought at Whole Foods. Todd had a Thai Coconut Panko Breaded Chicken Cutlet and I had a Sun-Dried Tomato Panko Breaded Chicken Cutlet, but we decided we weren't hungry enough to eat them though so we'll just save them for tomorrow night.
We ended the night watching the Olympics with Chocolate Fondue with strawberries, bananas, marshmellows, and mini brownie bites for dipping. Yum!!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
