Don't Throw Away the Valentine's Day Cards


We have a tradition in our home of putting a Valentine’s box in the middle of our kitchen table about a week before the 14th.  It started as a gentle reminder that the day was fast approaching.  On the evening of the 14th we have a dinner that is mostly red and the main dish is always heart shaped meatloaf.  After diner we open the box and pass out all of the valentines that the family members have made for each other.  I have saved those over the years.  A few years back I made this quilt using the valentines as a starting point.  

                                            My new favorite treat.  Poached pears with homemade carmel sauce.
