Little Bit of Cooking
5. “I Love You” Toast
This really is low effort romance. It’s also totally a child-friendly project (and nice to make for kids too)
- Make toast.
- Butter and spread with pink jelly (jam).
- Use a cookie cutter to cut into heart shapes.
6. Bagel – toast it. Add cream cheese and really good quality smoked salmon or lox. Buy good quality orange juice. Serve in a cut crystal glass.
7. Nothing says “I Love You” like bacon
- Bake the bacon in the oven (frying seems too much for a Monday morning) for 15 mins at 350ish while you take a shower.
- Butter some great crusty white bread, layer on the bacon and optional tomatoes, ketchup, HP sauce etc – whatever you like best.
- Present to your loved one.
- Expect thanks and happiness.
8. Pancakes – cut them into heart shapes with a cutter, or place the cutter in the pan and pour the batter in to make a heart-shape
9. Eggs en cocotte – These creamy eggs are deliciously indulgent
