Valentine's Day Heart Brownies

I saw this blog post by Smitten Kitchen and I knew I had to make these. I followed the recipe pretty much to a tee. I used a cheap white chocolate bar from Trader Joe's and was a little skeptical but they came out great. They were a lot easier to cut out the hearts from than the dark chocolate. In the end, it is so cute. Plus you can make them for any holiday!

We celebrated the big day this year with Susan and Doug @ Rogue Brewery. Not only do they make great beer, but they have a great birthday offer of a free yard of beer and a free t-shirt, as well as 20% off your bill. We started the celebration off early @ 3pm when we got off work.

Since the birthday girl gets what the birthday girl wants...why not a delicious plate of bacon! This might sound weird, but it was listed as an appetizer on the menu, so why not??

Here is Dougie with his Stout tasting flight. I enjoyed the one made with espresso - yum!

Matt and I on our second round...

Susan and Doug after round ?.................

In bed by 8:30, what a great day!
