So can you believe that a year has past from when i made you all guess what kev got me for valentines day. Remember it was our hawaii cats Big Surf and Kamehameha. (we got mail for them the other day- 2 letters addressed to big surf richardson and kamehameha richardson, it was from the vet) Anyways so another valentines is here and this year we decided to just make things for each other. I made kev a Chess set from clay which i fired and glazed all the pieces and then cut and painted the board from a piece of wood. It came out so awesome. Not to toot my own horn but i think it came out really great. It was the first thing I ever fired and glazed before. We really like playing chess together. NOW kev made me… MY OWN WEBSITE!!! crazy huh?? He knows that i want to start getting my own art shows and he wanted to create me a website that I could send to galleries to see my stuff. It has just a few pictures right now but it will have more artwork soon and alittle more content. Its so awesome. I love it.
Anyways, I had mentioned that I wanted to go to the restaurant The Melting Pot. Well, that place is just to packed. I can never ever get a reservation. So with an idea from Laura i decided to make our own melting pot for valentines day! It was so so fun. i bought a fondue pot from target and got this great white wine recipe to cook our main course. I had chicken, steak, zucchini, cauilflower, peppers, potatos to cook in the sauce. It was so delicious and it was such a fun dinner- we loved it!! And then of course for dessert we had chocolate fondue with strawberries, apples, pineapple and poundcake. Mmmm way better than going to a restaurant.
Here are some pictures of course…
this is our attempt to get a nice picture
