Nutritious Valentine's Day Dinner

Yesterday I wrote about loving your Valentine's heart with all your heart. I am pretty sure you all agree with the idea, but it can be difficult to figure out what to do about it. So I thought I'd show photos and share recipes for what I for our Valentine's Day dinner. It is too late for you to do it this year, but really every day should be a day for loving our precious ones, so as long as you have them with you, it isn't too late.

This is a photo of what of what I served each person last night. I pre-loaded the plates in the kitchen so they would be attractive. We enjoyed Corn salsa in purple cabbage bowls, tofu sprout patties (made by Elizabeth Joy), steamed asparagus, hummus and salad. The salad was composed of salad greens spread across the plate, a little pile of match stick carrots, bean sprouts, cucumbers, alfalfa spouts, snap peas and tomatoes. The hummus was on the side in another bowl and not pictured. Also on the side was Yummy Yam Salad, and Lime Parfaits and Acorn Grapes (made by Forest Zoo) for Dessert. The kids and I planned the dinner in the morning, shopped in the afternoon, started cooking around 3:45, and Dinner was served to Daddy around 6:30 p.m.

I will put each recipe in an individual post, following this one.
