First and foremost, HAPPY Valentine's Day to everyone out there in blogland! Second of all, could you ask for a more perfect Valentine? I'm not gonna lie, SA only got this picture because I was holding up a bit of cream cheese mashed potatoes over his head. Our golden Curry is the epitome of love and I just had to share.
SA and I don't really go all out for Valentine's day, its not our thing. Now don't get me wrong, we aren't one of those couples that bemoan all aspects of Valentine's, but nor are we ones that go buck wild for the holiday. We have a system: one year I plan what we do for Valentine's and the next SA plans it all. This year was SA's and I woke up to:
Flowers and an Itunes gift card!
and the best most quirky from my artistic husbands mind:
Yes friends, that is my sink. Yes that is cinnamon toothpaste spelling out UR LOVED (with hearts). Yes, I adore my darling creative husband and I'm not gonna lie, through the cinnamon haze, I "might" of teared up a little. He is the best.
So that being said, how could I not make him something creative and amazing for dinner tonight. Emphasis on creative. Thus I give to you:
Red Velvet Cake Fried Chicken Tenders
1/2 cups sugar2 eggs
5 drops of red food coloring
1 teaspoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 pound of chicken tenders
Flour for dredging
Combine all ingredients except chicken tenders, blending until smooth and non lumpy. Heat Frying oil and dredge tenders in flour then dip in red velvet cake batter. Fry six minutes and flip half way.
Serve with cream cheese mashed potatoes.
Now I admit I am a bit embarrassed by this recipe... I mean red velvet cake on a chicken tender? How unhealthy could we get? But I will say, we only had two a piece and no dessert even on Valentines day! (So friends while this recipe might be what is wrong with America, it is all about portion control!)
And SA, just so you know:
