Valentine Surprise!

I wasn't expecting to be writing a second post today!
However, when I arrived in front of my computer first thing this morning, I found a couple of little surprises that I want to share with you! The lovely little wooden heart is an ornament for the Christmas tree and the plate of goodies come from a Deli near where Embee works. Just look at the name of the Deli which is very apt for today!

I tried the biscuit (cookie) and it was flavoured with lavender. I have seen recipes using lavender in cooking but have never tried it myself, despite having a bush growing in the garden! So I now have some lovely treats for my coffee breaks for the next few days!!

Thank you Embee I know you will be reading this~ just one thing where did you hide the champagne!!

He hid the champagne in the marmite pot of course. duh!

We have a lavender farm near where we live and they have a tearoom with all sorts of goodies. I was a bit apprehensive about their lavender scones but my parents said they smelt and tasted wonderful (I have no sense of smell unfortunately). I know there are quite a few recipes you can use lavender for.
I hope you enjoyed your valentines treats!

That's so wonderful!

Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Sam I do remember those but I wasn't too keen on them. This biscuit was much nicer.

jennie I keep saying I'm going to be more adventurous with the lavender!

enidd now remember where the glue goes so not sure that he wasn't being a bit too sweet!! I'm sure you wouldn't want him to encourage the man into bad habits!

What a sweet gift. I love the little heart ornament. I've never heard of baking or cooking with lavender!

sagari thank you for dropping by again. By the way I love the look of your carrot cake. I'm going to try that recipe sometime. I have just found a recipe of my mother's for carrot cake, made with honey so I'm going to try this one first!
