So, I doubt anyone is reading this post today . . . you're all out enjoying the snow and the weekend. But I thought I'd hop on here to show you guys what we did for Valentine's Day last year -- you know, if you're still itching for something to do.
We took one of my budget-friendly Valentine's Day stay IN ideas and made a lavish dinner for two.
The meal included the following . . .
What you'll need . . .
- 1 wheel of brie (we used President)
- 2 scoop-fulls of jam (we used Wegmans Triple Fruit)
- A sourdough round cut into slices
Method . . .
- Set your oven to the broil setting. It's best to use a pizza stone, so make sure that's in there, too. But you may just use a regular cookie sheet.
- Gather all ingredients and use a sharp knife to cut the rind off the brie. Be careful to just cut off the rind, you want to keep all the gooey stuff.
- Place all cheese and jam (we used two heaping spoonfuls) in a bowl and mash together using a fork until well combined . . . but also kind of chunky (can you tell this recipe is really just thrown together? yes!)
- Spread the cheese mixture on your bread, place slices on cookie sheet or on pizza stone, and broil until cheese is bubbly and golden brown. We checked ours every few minutes.
ALSO: We're gearing up to do another FAQ post in the near future . . . so if you have anything you're dying to know, just leave a comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For ideas, or if you simply just missed it -- here's our last FAQ post, Part #1: Who ARE the (never home)makers?.
