February Date

Posted by Angie at 8:44 AM
Adoption involves a lot of waiting!  To help pass the time, I planned 12 dates for my husband and I.  Some are goofy, some are sweet, all are inexpensive (many are free).  So far we have enjoyed our adventures, in our August date, September date, October date, November date, December date, and January Date, and March Date.

Oh my goodness, I am so behind in sharing these!  Here's February's catch-up.

For February, I planned something a little more romantic, inspired by this date from the Love Actually blog.  Here is the date card.
Our dog's name is Dasher, so if you do this date you will probably want to tweak the name to be something a bit more personal for you!

First up was dinner.  Since our garden has been producing more zucchini than we know what to do with, we have been trying to incorporate it into every meal. Zucchini fries (yum), zucchini chips (soggy), zucchini bread (bitter, what did I do wrong?), zucchini muffins (much better, I added chocolate chips), zucchini in our fried rice recipe (surprisingly good).  So, it should come as no surprise that we made a pasta recipe with zucchini in it!  And of course...I managed to take no pictures of the evening.  So just imagine a picture here of angel hair pasta with bright green bits of zucchini and freshly shredded Parmesan was delicious.

Unfortunately, The Italian Job was no longer on Instant Netflix, so we chose Midnight in Paris instead.  We enjoyed it!

So that was our February Date!  More updates on the rest soon!

Much love,
Blessed Mama

Please join us in praying for our first court appointment, coming up on July 25th!  THIS WEEK!  To celebrate, I have a special post in mind for tomorrow.  This isn't a travel date for us, but an important step, so join us in prayers for a smooth appointment and a speedy process from this date forward.

When the zucchini gets too large with lots of seeds it becomes bitter. For your chips you may need to double fry them and not crowd the oil. It gets them crispy and the temp of the oil won't drop as much and soak up the oil into the chips. We made a purée and froze them in ice cube trays for sauces and things later. It was a great way to add extra veggies into my son's food when he was little.
