This year marked the 8th year my husband and I celebrated Valentine’s Day together. Our first V-Day, we were both in college, and I cooked him crepes in my dorm kitchen (always a scary proposition) and we ate them on a blanket on the floor of my dorm room. Maybe it was the fumes from the aerosol can of whipped cream that swayed him, but I like to think that it was the magic of crepes that sealed the deal. We were engaged later that spring and married a year later.
So every Valentine’s Day since then, we have celebrated by having crepes for dinner. We try to make it a nice affair:
My crepes usually look something like this: Nutella or chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and berries. What’s not to love?
This year, though, he got shook up our time-honored crepe routine. I sent him out to get berries and cream, and he comes back with Kit-Kat bars. Kit-Kat bars! I think he’s been reading Katrina’s blog…I kept waiting for him to bust out the Rolos and make Turtle crepes or something.
Not wanting to stifle his budding culinary creativity, I chopped them up and added them to the buffet of crepe toppings. Holy Cupid, they were actually GOOD! Seriously. The bits added a really light, fun crunch to the crepes.
So there you have it. 8 years in and he’s still delighting and surprising me in new ways every day. It must be love.
