Valentines Day Treats

Love heart popsicles

by Cybele
Once upon a time, I deemed Valentines Day as too soppy for me. Now, I love it. The world needs all the love it can get and anything that reminds me to tell those in my life that I love and treasure them has to be a good thing.

Cut the watermelon slices about an inch thick before cutting with a cookie cutter or around a stencil and pop on a stick. I was thinking these would be great for breakfast.

  1. Oh these are lovely treats Bele, very cute! We don’t do much for Valentine’s Day – certainly no card etc, but I do always cook a nice meal, open a nice bottle of wine and acknowledge it. I may receive some flowers too, if I’m lucky 🙂 V Day falls exactly halfway between my husband’s birthday and my birthday, so we do enough celebrating at this time of year.

    • Sounds like you have a very similar birthday to my son. It’s important to make sure these celebrations are done on one’s own terms and I can’t think of a better way than a good meal and tipple. Have a beautiful weekend x
