My husband likes "white chocolate," so for our second Anniversary, I made him a white chocolate rose bouquet. He liked flowers that looked pretty, as well as smelled and tasted good! The stems are pretzels. He stopped to pick up some groceries and I asked him to purchase a bag of white baking chips. He had no idea he was purchasing his anniversary present! Isn't it a pity that a husband not only has pick up his anniversary present, but pay for it too! :) He didn't seem to mind.
For my friend/sister-in-law's birthday, I made her a chocolate rose bouquet.
Even the men folk can appreciate a bouquet, if it is bacon roses. Last year for our "betrothal anniversary" I made my husband a rose bacon bouquet. It works for mother's day as well if you happen to have a mother or mother-in-law who loves bacon.
This is not an original idea. I had seen other people doing bacon roses and wanted to do some for my husband. Like all things though, we can add our own personal touch. The bouquets I had seen either did not have any greenery, or they used fake leaves. I did not want bacon roses on plastic leaves. As much as possible, I like all my "food art" to be edible. After looking at some salad greens, I decided fresh parsley looked best for a bouquet. Roses are usually accompanied by baby's breath flowers. I thought for a good while before coming up with the idea to use cauliflower for the baby's breath.
Modest wedding dresses can be hard to fine.I made mine for our wedding last year and
have decided there is no good reason to keep it when another young lady might
could use it.There are several pictures
of the dress posted on my other blog, so instead of re-posting them here,
please visit this webpage: Wedding Day.
If someone is interested in purchasing the dress or desires
information concerning it, please feel free to contact me.
I do not know who came up with the following recipe, but it is a good one:
Select one fresh from the market. Not too green but tender and healthy. Handle gently for they bruise easily. Sweeten with smiles, blend with patience, humor and a pinch of mischief. Do Not Beat! Preserve over a steady fire of warmth and affection. They mellow with age. Do not pickle or put in hot water. This will make them bitter. Serve with sugar, spice and tender loving care.
