We'll start with the popcorn...
A strange combination? Yes!
This is supposed to be messy and finger-lickin' good, so make sure you have a napkin on hand when consuming!
Stop licking the screen.
...and now for the pomtinis!
Most pomtini recipes are a little too tart because they often use grapefruit juice combined with the normal pomegranate juice. Skip the grapefruit juice and get pomegranate CHERRY juice!
In this video, Martha Stewart shows you a really easy way to get the pomegranate seeds out.
They are like little jewels packed with flavor - I love the seeds!
Now pomegranate seeds are available year round in the produce section of the grocery store.
You can see what they look like packaged here.
Try out these fun recipes for your sweetie on Valentine's Day! They are great for a fancy movie night at home. These two recipes wake up your taste buds with savory, salty, sweet, spicy, and sour notes. The popcorn combination may turn you off, but I promise it is yummy!
Every year my husband and I switch off who is in charge of Valentine's Day festivities. That person has to plan the day's events and keep it a secret from the other. It is romantic and it makes it easier on our budget too! Last year I discovered that I accidentally did two years in a row and this blog was the proof (I knew I kept this blog for a reason!). I'm not sure what Corey has planned, but I am just looking forward to spending time with him. :)
I often hear single people or anti-romantics grumble about Valentine's Day. It is all about your perspective of the holiday! Valentine's Day should be a time to show someone you love that you care about them - surprise your mom with flowers or spoil your dog with a new bone! Although we don't necessarily need a holiday to remind us to show our affection for others, it is a nice opportunity to make someone feel special.
Happy Valentine's Day!
