Fast, Easy Valentine Hearts For Breakfast or Anytime

Posted by infinitygoods on February 11, 2008

Valentine Canapes Easy & Fast For Any Meal, photo by Infinity GoodsThis Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday so a special breakfast for your family might seem impossible, but not if you follow these quick and easy tips. Armed with my heart shaped cookie cutters of varying sizes I can show my heartfelt sentiments with morning canapes which are some of the easiest and fastest things you can possibly make.

These ideas can also be easily adapted into sandwiches for the lunch boxes (children LOVE them) or appetizers for your romantic dinner for two or even include all your children to celebrate your family’s love.

Here’s just a sampling of the variations you can make in little more time than it takes for your toaster to pop up.

Cut your favorite brand of store-bought waffles, English muffins or sliced bread with your heart-shaped cookie cutters. Toast, and add your favorite savory or sweet toppings. If your topping is not spreadable, use your cookie cutters again!

  • Sweet:
  • Jelly/Jam especially red ones to keep with the Valentine theme such as strawberry, cherry, or plum;
  • Sugar and cinnamon;
  • Lemon curd;
  • Peanut butter or peanut butter and jelly;
  • Butter;
  • Apple sauce or apple butter;
  • Cream cheese;
  • Whipped cream and red sugar sprinkles;
  • Nuttela (chocolate and hazelnut spread);
  • Or to be totally decadent, an ice cream Sunday with a heart waffle or two on the side.
  • Savory:
  • Pate or braunschweiger;
  • Canadian bacon;
  • Ham;
  • Shredded or sliced cheese; (shredded will melt faster in your toaster over)
  • Minced sun-dried tomatoes;
  • Turkey;
  • Pastrami or any other deli meats;
  • Egg (such as scrambled or over easy, etc.)
  • Roasted bell peppers (they come right out of a jar these days);
  • Herb cheese spread such as Rondele or Alouette;
  • Lox (smoked salmon);
  • Marinated mushrooms;
  • Marinated artichoke hearts.

I’m sure I missed lots of great toppings, so let us know your great ideas too.

And for the scraps left over from those heart cutouts, some very lucky dogs will love you, or you can save them for your next turkey stuffing.

I Was Tagged By 4URPets For A Lucky 7 Tag

Posted by infinitygoods on January 5, 2008

My neighbor friend at 4URPets just got tagged by Gina and now I’ve been tagged too!
4URPets is a new blogger with a great sense of humor, so although I don’t care for tags, I couldn’t possibly say no to this tag, and in honor of her three Chihuahuas and pet blog, I’m going to give you 7 random facts about my pets.

First I have to post the rules:

  1. Link to the person who tagged you;
  2. Leave a comment on their blog so that their readers can visit yours;
  3. Post the rules on your blog;
  4. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog;
  5. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post;
  6. Include links to their blogs;
  7. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

OK. Here are my 7 random pet facts:

  1. My very first pet was a Siamese cat who rescued me from my fear of cats and converted me to a cat lover thanks to his sweet, kind, gentle and caring ways;
  2. My cat would faithfully stay in bed with me whenever I was sick;
  3. My cat liked to swing in the bed sheets hammock-style whenever we changed the sheets and would then take the sheets in between his two front paws to “help” make the bed (boy, I wish I had thought of taking videos);
  4. I had a blue and a green parakeet. When the green parakeet was ready to die he made himself a little helmet out of seeds!!
  5. I inherited my golden retriever from my mother-in-law, but we loved each other since puppyhood.
  6. My golden retriever was an AKA-certified pure-breed stud and a trained service dog who saved people’s lives;
  7. My golden retriever was poisoned during the Chinese pet food recalls of January 2007. I call it mass pet murder, and I am very angry at the pet food companies and China. I have sworn to never feed pet food to any of my future dogs or cats because “pets are people too” and their lives are too valuable.

Now, for the 7 random bloggers, I will continue with the pet theme and tag 7 people who recently came by my blog and who have posted about their pets. This is by no means an obligation, as these tags can sometimes be downright bothersome, but if you want to participate, then you can:

  1. Robin at Around The Island, whose children are pictured riding a camel;
  2. Playful Professional at Talent To Play will run a half-marathon for a kitten;
  3. Nicholas at A Gentleman’s Domain, who tells his cats he loves them;
  4. Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer whose beloved rat recently passed;
  5. SJ at Pink Flamingo, who has a blessed 6-inch kitten;
  6. Sarah at Puss Reboots photographs cats;
  7. YOU at Your Blog — if you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged! 😉
