Last week I promised we would have our bathroom painting finished. It looks like I lied. We did, however, manage to paint another coat and celebrate Valentine’s Day the best way we know how – by chowing down on chocolate dipped fruit while watching the new season of The Amazing Race.
Chocolate dipped fruit is one of my favorite (read: only) desserts to make. I usually make it for special occasions or for gifting. It’s essentially your choice of fruit – I’ve done bananas and pineapples, but this time we went for apples and strawberries; and semi-sweet chocolate chips melted in a Crockpot. Once dipped, the fruit is refrigerated to create a chocolate-y hard shell.
Rob took some awesome pictures while I licked up slaved over the chocolate.
And here’s some bonus cat footage for ya. In an effort to keep this house related – Jin and Polly have recently discovered the warm tile in our house. It’s a tile near their eating area that gets inexplicably warm, almost hot. It is now their favorite napping spot on cold days.
