Valentine for your taste buds

A lot of people don't have valentines. Everyone has a tummy, though.

I just read in Southern Living about a tasty treat that even I could cook.

1. Melt chocolate in the microwave.
2. Dip strawberries in chocolate.
3. Roll them in crushed pecans.

Three of my favorite things. I think I'm in love.

Journal: Write about a beloved food.


  1. I'm totally with you . . . until you get to the pecan part.

  2. Yes, I know. Some people aren't nuts about pecans. However, I grew up in the town that was in the Guiness Book of World Records for World's Largest Pecan Pie. (It covered main street and tasted disgusting.) We were also in Trivial Pursuit for the same reason--the size, not the taste. So... I guess it's the childhood influence that makes me gushy and nostalgic about pecans.
