Valentine creativity

I thoroughly dislike being bored - or boring.  

Valentines day
                      Cards - boring
                       Candy - boring
                      Stuffed animals - take up too much room
                      Flowers - die

Solution - 24 cards!

I bought a pack of Scooby doo valentines (like the ones you would for a class) and signed each one a little differently.  For example in the to: I would put things like to my hubby, to my mechanic, to my plumber, to my bff...  In the from I put from: your babies mommy, your wiffle (inside joke), your cars worst enemy).....

Then I hid a few each day for a few days.  I knew how many there were and how many were left to find after valentines day.  I hid some in the truck, some in his uniform pockets, in his brief case and lunch box, in his shoes....

This was so much fun!

Fried chicken salad

What in the world do you do with half a bucket of left over chicken?  You eventually get tired of eating it.  It can't be frozen (tried that, it didn't work).  We really didn't like the chicken much the first time, so it had to be improved. There was no way to make it worse.  Don't get me wrong, it wasn't horrible, but I will not ever buy it again - especially for the price!
I did quite a few internet searches, but didn't find much for left over fried chicken.  Lots of recipes for left over chicken, but I wanted one for fried chicken.  As you can see, I used boneless chicken.  I came up with the idea of turning it into chicken salad. 
After cutting the chicken into small bite size pieces, I cut a bunch of grapes in half, diced some radishes and apple, along with 2 hard boiled eggs.  Add all of the ingredients to a bowl - then add some mustard (hubby likes mustard in his salads) and mayo.  Mix well and chill.  I made it at lunch and let it chill until dinner. 
No more left over chicken.  The kids inhaled it.  Even hubby liked it.  I may not get another chance to make it, but if we ever have more left over fried chicken I know what to do with it.

Hubbys Valentine Video

I wanted to do something fun and unique for hubby for valentines day this year.   Last summer the kids learned how to take photos and turn them into a video.  At the time I thought it was silly since every phone has a video camera.  Now I'm glad I learned!

I took a bunch of sweet heart candies and spelled out I love you.  He loved it.  Then we ate the candy :)

This was so easy and fun to do.  The hardest part of the entire thing - finding the candy.
