Nothing like a long weekend.

I had a completely relaxing weekend, complete with bargain shopping, Valentine's Day dinner and homemade dessert, reading a great novel, eating fondue, and tons of laughter. For the first time in weeks, I felt completely refreshed going back to work. Of course the refreshed feeling didn't last long, but I can't complain.

Tim took me to Sakura for dinner Saturday night and then I made us dessert. I have been trying a lot of new ideas lately, and this time I made a chocolate flourless cake dessert. It was VERY rich, and while not the best flourless cake ever, I have to say I did a darn good job.

This week is going to fly by - Tuesday is already over and by Friday I need to be packed for the ski weekend. I can't wait for a little quality time at the Barley home!!!

Sandra Lee now has her own magazine of semi-homemade fun! I bought the premiere issue tonight at the grocery store and I am LOVING it!!!

It doesn't really take much to keep me happy.
