From the Decorated Cookie.
So there’s one that I had never considered being creative with. I love me some Totino’s pizza rolls….despite how horribly unhealthy they are. Or maybe it’s BECAUSE they are so unhealthy that I love them from time to time.
I see them as a convenience food, though, that gets tossed in the oven (or even the microwave when I’m desperate…shh). I wouldn’t have considered turning them into something more fun, but she did! And it was as simple as tossing some pizza sauce, some cheese, and a few heart shaped spinach leaves a top a pile of pizza rolls arranged into a pointy heart.
I would probably replace the green stuff with some carefully cut pepperonis instead. After all, if I’m going to indulge in cheap, unhealthy food, why spoil it with green stuff? My mother taught me better than that!
(Also…. happy birthday!)
Now I really want pizza. And I want someone to make it into a heart shape that doesn’t end up looking deformed like mine always do. ><
I don’t really do anything for Valentine’s Day usually. I made pink heart shaped pancakes for the girls one year, if I recall correctly, although that easily could’ve been just a random day where I felt like showing them I cared enough to spend some extra time on breakfast. That just goes to show how important this holiday is to me, huh? Ha.
I do end up seeing a lot related foods around every single holiday, though, and V-Day is no exception. Just how many heart-shaped cookies can there possibly be in the world? Hundreds of thousands, according to my feed reader.
So I especially liked this idea to help balance it out. Instead of focusing only on the dessert side, this one simply involves cutting some carrots and tossing them into a soup. In this case, it appears to be chicken noodle soup and I love the simplicity of it. <3
Sophistimom did a really awesome tutorial on how to easily create the hearts without doing it individually, too, so check her out.
And in case you would prefer a dessert, how about some manly cookies?
