Valentine’s Day last night was really low-key, and I’m glad. After work, BF came over to pick me up. He brought me 2 hand-cut cardboard hearts (cute!), a book of NHL trivia/facts, and chocolate dipped strawberries (not the actual picture of them … but they were delicious! I should have brought them to work.)
From my house, we ordered take-out Indian food, rented 2 movies, and went back to his house for the night. I’m glad that we didn’t go out for dinner. For some reason, the thought of going out on Valentine’s Day makes me kind of want to vomit, because you know every couple is doing the exact same thing. It’s almost embarrassing.
Anyway, I baked BF an apple pie. I had most of the ingredients for the pie, but I had to pick up a few things: 5 organic granny smith apples, brown sugar, shortening, unsalted butter, and ice cream. Hmm, I guess I didn’t really have any of the ingredients. Except for the spices, flour and white sugar. I also randomly bought a package of dessert tofu, just in case the pie ended up disastrous. Anyway, the total bill came to $19.67. Yes, it was expensive, but I bought a 2kg bag of brown sugar for $6 (I bought the big one b/c I know I’ll use it all eventually), and the ice cream was $8.50 (very expensive, but I bought the bigger tub and it’s delicious … plus you can’t have apple pie without ice cream, that’s just science).
All in all, it was worth it, because BF really liked the pie, and I didn’t have to break the bank to celebrate Valentine’s Day. So I’m happy.
