My romantic dinner did not turn out exactly how I had intended it too, but it was still close to perfect.It was  awesome to surprise my hubby and show him how much I appreciate and love him. I started baking the velvet cake balls around 3p.m. One of the funnest deserts I've ever baked! Not only was it messy, it was hands on and so easy to make! They turned out amazing and I will be making them more often! My hubby usually won't get home till around 1 a.m. from work, so I started cooking at about 11 p.m. I had finished everything when he calls me at 1 and says he won't be home for a long time. So I kept all the food in the oven, noooot a good idea! I ended up setting off the fire alarm at 2 a.m. and it would NOT turn off. I would like to apologize to my neighbors, I did not mean to wake you up..false alarm!! The kabobs turned out to be so delicious, and the shrimp wrapped in bacon was pure bliss! It was fun learning new things to make and I am going to try to encorporate more new recipes into my meals!
Robert finally arrived home at 3:30 AM!! I was exhaaaused! I shook off the exhaustion, and opened the door with a huge smile! He knew something was up because it was quite and Cali Jean was not out running around. I took his hand and led him to the kitchen. Candles, yummy food, was perfect! He was so surprised and could not believe I actually cooked the food! We enjoyed a wonderful night morning together, enjoying the food and each others company. It was so romantic, and I'm glad it turned out the way it did. It was worth all the hard work in the kitchen, and gave me a reason to dress up in a gorgeous dress!
Chocolate dipped strawberries and velvet dipped balls for breakfast..mmm,mmm,mmm!
