Wine, roses and song, love is in the air. Yes, Valentines Day brings out the romantic in me, even after many years of marriage. Some of my happiest memories are watching my kids sporting events on Valentines Day with my husband. Basketball, ice hockey, wrestling, February 14th is fair game for scheduling games, and matches. I know it doesn’t sound romantic but sausage and peppers or hot dogs at the game can be romantic with the right attitude.
Sometimes you just have to create your own special day. This Smoked Oyster Dip recipe, is wonderful for any occasion and can be “dressed-up” with toast points or just serve with chips or crackers.
This Oyster Dip recipe, chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling wine or cider is elegant, easy and a lovely surprise for your loved ones.
If you dip your own strawberries in melted chocolate, make sure the berries are dry on the outside. I melt my chocolate in the microwave but am very careful as it melts fast and burns faster! I stir the chocolate every 15 seconds just so it won’t burn. Of course, the double boiler method works extremely well for melting chocolate. Put dipped berries on wax paper and refrigerate. If you have a few extra share the “love” with others, we all like to feel special.
