This is NOT a crafty mommy blog

However, when in the course of human events it becomes necessary to document the strange ways in which a newly married couple chooses to observe certain holidays, these things happen:
This year's flavors of Valentine's Day Truffles (Mr. Awesome prefers that his holiday traditions be food related. In fact, he prefers that most things be food related. Honestly? So do I.) From left to right: Milk Chocolate, Spicy Dark Chocolate, Lavendar Chocolate, White Chocolate Saffron, and Lime Sugar Chocolate.

Valentine's food revisited: We made mini-alfajores to take to his family get-together. Four of us have served in the same Argentine mission, so these sort of matched the empanadas and castellano theme of the day.
Also some of them are heart shaped, but that's mostly because I really wanted to use those cookie cutters.

Our take on "Easter Egg Baskets" this year. Do you get it, do you see what we did there?
Mr. Awesome has declared this "the coolest project we've done together yet". I'm dubious about that, but I'm glad he likes the result.

Oh, and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! We had friends over for games and various green dips (Green Goddess Dip, Pesto, Bacon-Guacamole, and Key-Like Curd, oh my!). This was my last minute concession to Mr. Awesome's panic that "We haven't even decorated for St. Patrick's Day!" The fact that I just happened to have seven glass bottles lying around, though, is not something I can easily explain.
 And that, dear ones, is that.
