Love Is A Special Day

Hope you're having a lovely Valentine's day. Have you heard the song Valentine by Kina Grannis? I love her voice, it's relaxing.
 Last night, I made a homemade broccoli pie (I'll add the recipe below) and chocolate bundt cake for dinner. It was a simple affair, we ate in our kitchen.

The paper plates are from Tuesday Mornings. I love buying plates, and napkins from there, so many to choose from.

Here's the recipe for Broccoli Pie:
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. In a pan saute your broccoli (2 crowns, cut up). with some olive oil and a teaspoon of chopped garlic. Add an onion (red, or yellow) diced and stir. I also add sliced baby carrots, half a diced red pepper and a splash of soy sauce. Stir on a medium-high heat for around 1-2 minutes.
I buy the pre-made pie shells, take out of freezer before you start chopping, and poke the bottom layer with a fork several times. After the filling has sauteed, add a can of cream of broccoli (or chicken if you prefer) and mix. Add broccoli filling to pie shell. Then add the top pie crust. I usually press the foil all the way around, and slowly lift up the edges before removing, then crimp the edges with a fork. Add a motif to the top...I added a heart...
bake for around 40 minutes. Even those who aren't keen on this pie.

In other news, we've been doing lot's of wedding planning. Pinterest and Etsy have been such a wonderful source of inspiration. We've decided to register at Etsy, as we know the love that's put into all the homemade goodies.
And, My 365 Mag's Valentines and Foodie issue is out. Take a tea break and a peek.
