Did everyone have a nice Valentines Day with their sweethearts? Mine was great. I am so lucky to have someone that I just click with. We enjoy doing pretty much anything together and can always find the fun in whatever we do. He is so thoughtful and caring. Being that we have a lack of funds we had to come up with a creative way to spend Valentines day together without spending a whole lot of money. Ryan suggested that we go skating on the Rideau Canal.
I haven't been skating in a LONG time!
We headed to the city on Saturday morning and parked close to where the Canal ended. We skated the whole length and back. Half way we got hungry and got two Back Bacon on a Bun. It was such a tasty Canadian treat. Once we got back to the Chalet to untie our skates our legs felt like jello. It was a lot of work so as a reward we each got a Beavertail, my favorite treat. A bread like treat fried and dipped in cinnamon and sugar. Yum! A total cost for the day on the canal; $20.00.
On the canal!
On Sunday, while Ryan was at hockey I decided I wanted to make him a Valentines Day treat. I had worked the night before so I was pretty dopey when I woke up. I had bought a heart shaped cookie cutter a while back just for this day. I made the dough no problem. Cut them all out, no problems.
Ready for the oven.
I stuck WAY too many on one pan. I was tired and wanted to take nap so instead of being patient I put too many on one pan, to get done quicker. Woops. I am still a young cook. :-) Trial and error. The next pan came out much better and Ryan was surprised to have this treat waiting for him when he got home.
