Are you ready for a lovely Saturday? I am! Some little kiddos are coming over to my house for a Valentine’s Day brunch. We’re having sausage patties, fried eggs, and pumpkin donuts -all heart-shaped. Strawberry/blueberry smoothies (with straws) will top it off! The Country Cupboard is also ready for a lovely Valentine’s Day. We have sprinkles, gummi candy and lots of chocolate covered treats. Also, a brand-new item arrived this week: buckwheat groats – a little heart-shaped grain – just in time for Valentine’s day. Use it for a creamy morning cereal, granola, pancakes or cake. Something else to love this month: Creamy Caramel Cappuccino. It’s the Cappuccino of the Month so sample it every Friday and Saturday in February. Save 50¢ off a bag every single day.

Transfer back to wax paper then add embellishments on top. Place into refrigerator to harden then package. Store on the counter or in the fridge.
