Happy February! I’m always glad to be back at Sarah’s site with another treat just for you. It’s Jane, from Jane’s Adventures in Dinner, and all month long on my blog we’re celebrating ‘Real Life Romance’.
REAL LIFE ROMANCE
What’s that? Well, it’s not what the fairy tales talk about. It’s all about hopefully finding someone that is willing to put up with your particular brand of crazy everyday. It’s all about being with someone who is WELL aware of your flaws and still thinks that you are ‘the bee’s knees’.
IT’S ABOUT THE SMALL THINGS
It’s about the small things and not just the grand gestures. Your spouse starting your car for you on really cold winter mornings. You knowing that they love anything lime scented so you’re always on the lookout. Them understanding that watching “The Walking Dead” gives you nightmares but you’ll still watch it anyways and they will need to deal with that late at night…
THIS MONTH’S RECIPE
This month’s recipe is a treat that is so easy to make that you can sit with your love on a Tuesday night with a port or an espresso. It’s so easy to do up that you’ll even have time for a real conversation.
You might even have enough energy to share some of those fairy tale, happily-ever-after dreams.
DAIRY-FREE CHIPOTLE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE RECIPE
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate (chopped or buttons)
1/4 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites (beaten until stiff)
1/2 tsp chipotle (like things really spicy-add a wee bit more)
1 tsp vanilla
1 can coconut milk (8 oz) (chill overnight and when you’re ready for mouse turn the can upside down, drain out the coconut water and whip the cream like you would any other dairy product-it’s a fabulous trick)
