Valentine's Day; Children in Red

I was not only unprepared for Valentine's Day but also hadn't given thought as to the fact that it fell on Ash Wednesday.  I didn't really know what to do, so I (adult) continued as I would on Ash Wednesday and simply muted the usual fanfare for the children, cutting out the Fat-Tuesday fare we'd normally have on V-day.  So, unsweetened whole wheat zucchini muffins for breakfast...with chocolate on top, plain grapefruit (Molly!!!), hardboiled eggs, and the candy and valentines Grandma and Grandpa had mailed up the day before.

Lunch was another weird mix. Homemade grape juice with unsweetened seltzer, greasy leftovers, a watermelon-gift, and leftover Christmas candy they each ate a few pieces of and then split into bags for Sunday.  No donuts or elephant ears this year.

That's something.
