My Valentine’s Day Photo Story


I made a photobooth inspired card for Alex.  This is the first page.

My coworker made these individualized heart-shaped cookies.  Mine says, “Lederhosen Wedding Dress,” paying homage to my fiance’s Austrian roots.

The cookies weren’t gluten-free, so she also brought macarons from Bouchon Bakery for me to enjoy.  This is their PB&J.

I bought Alex tickets to Astor Center‘s Bacon & Bourbon Expo for his birthday in November.  It was conveniently scheduled for Valentine’s Day.  Here I am enjoying some Redemption Rye and Bacon-Chipotle Popcorn.

I learned how what the difference is between bourbon and rye* and how to make a bacon infused cocktail with a  method called fat washing from Don Lee, formerly of PDT

We tasted 5 different artisanal bacon strips.  My favorites were #2 and #4 because they melted in your mouth.

My Valentine’s Day gift was treats from Tu-Lu’s Gluten Free Bakery.  These are her delicious and beautiful sugar cookies that we ate for dessert.

* bourbon, rye, and other grain alcohols are considered gluten-free because of the distillation process.
