With a little strategic planning,
the Hubs and I managed to have a nice Valentine’s dinner for two while youngest granddaughter,
(that we are babysitting while her mama and daddy have a Valentine getaway),
sat in her little bouncy seat looking on,
(and pooping her pants, requiring giving her a full bath before we had our dessert).
The table was set simply for the two of us.
A few years ago I decided to finally let go of my indestructible Pfaltzgraff Yorktown dishes,
that I had for years and years.
I wanted some simple white dishes for everyday.
I wanted white Fiestaware, but it was a bit more than I could afford at the time.
One day, I happened upon these Thomson Pottery dishes, (sphere pattern),
at Ross for under $50 for twelve place settings.
I love them!
They are great for everyday, but look great for special occasions too.
I’ve had no problems at all with them chipping or breaking.
I’ve seen other Thomson dinnerware at places like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx and Homegoods.
Our Valentine’s dessert was Chocolate Fudge Cakes with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Yummmy! A great special occasion dessert, but easy to make.
(excuse the poor evening photos)
All in all, it was a great Valentine’s Day,
poopy diapers and all.
