Like Erin, I haven't celibrated Valentine's Day for a hand-full of years. I have to celibrate tonight because all of you Chocolate&Zucchini members have given me some good ideas.

I like Rainey's heart-shaped pancake idea: that will remind me of the pancakes my grandmother (the German one) used to make (her pancakes were more Mickey-Mouse-head shaped).

I like the idea of Dairy_Queen's butter-milk pie. I may try it tonight with just the filling and not the topping or crust. Sort of a quick-and-dirty version of Bee's pie.

I've got the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey on DVD to watch tonight during dinner. I haven't seen the movie since it was released back in the early '70s. And at that time, I was just in junior-high school and I didn't really understand much. I know this is a strange movie to pick for Valentine's Day.

Hope everyone has a special meal with or without their SO tonight.

Have a wonderful, movieful VD, sarape. If you thought you might fit a double feature in there, I'd suggest The Girl with a Pearl Earring it's soooo beautiful and I think you might like it.

You go, Sarape! I'm glad that we inspired you to do something special and extra-loving for your husband...and yourself this evening.

And I got a good chuckle out of your making my buttermilk pie in a "quick and dirty" version of my recipe: perhaps a sequel to Dirty Dancing? Dirty Pie Making?! Laughing

Here's a suggestion, Sarape: I've used just the filling in custard cups, but I've placed an apricot half in the bottom of the cup, for the eater to 'discover'. I've coated the apricot in peach preserves, with a splash of brandy or Amaretto, so you might want to try that.

Along with Rainey's good suggestion of A Girl With a Pearl Earring, you might want to rent Chocolat or Babette's Feast: two funny and upbeat Foodie movies.

For us, after we eat and open gifts, we're settling down to watch the Grammy's, which was taped last night.

And let me also add to the well-wishes and love for the other C & Z posters on Valentine's Day.

Oh dear, this "Sarape" moniker has now got Dairy_Queen confused. This is the second time here at C&Z when someone thought I was a woman.

No, Sarape is male, aka, Russell DeAnna.

I picked Sarape as my moniker because it is such a fun word to say out loud: sa-rah-PEE.

Anyway, thanks for the VD's wishes. I've seen Babette's Feast and enjoyed it very much. Have not seen Chocolate, though.

I am going to make heart-shaped pancakes tonight. And I'm gonig to try the quick-n-dirty version of your butter-milk pie. I'm a guy, so I can't be baking real pies, after all. Very Happy My butter-milk pie is going to be done in a pot on top of the stove as well. So, it's really going to be a different animal, but I'm going to use your ingredients.

Sorry, Sarape, aka Russel! Embarassed I know what it's like, though. At a site that I'm a mod at, for Sci-Fi writers, I have a name similar to the site owner, who is male. Therefore,
most new posters assume that I'm also male! I guess being a landscape architect doesn't help!

I just made old-fashioned custard for my Sweetie's and my dessert tonight; with the crepes she wanted something lighter. Good luck in the laboratory, Sarape. Let me know how your experiment turned out!
