Well today I thought it was time to change things up a bit and get ready for the Valentine's excitement. At work our shipment of Valentine's items arrived today so it got me in the mood so I thought what better then to update my blog.
Isn't funny what businesses go through for one silly day. Just for my Java City I ordered special coffee, rose flavored syrup for our drink of the month and tons of Valentine's candy. Then for Medary we make special cupcakes, cookies and desserts. And to top it all off I prepare a Valentine's Meal for all the students! This year I am not sure what will be on the menu but last year I did a sweetheart meal with Jumbo Shrimp and Prime Rib.....any suggestions??
Another thing that cracks me up is how the flower shops double all their prices. One particular flower shop in Brookings charges $75 for a dozen roses on Valentine's Day and then on a ordinary day they are around $35. That is just craziness!!
Here is the February drink of the month "The Rose Mocha"
