Army Tanks & Easy V-Day Food

My nephews made these army tanks for their Valentine card boxes and I just had to show them off. If you are new the blog, see this post for Carson's military inspired birthday party.

Aren't they ironically fabulous!!!

Ready for a few easy V-Day food ideas?
Apparently our deer are also ready for some easy food too.

Sandwich two sugar cookies with frosting. Squeeze together so that the icing squirts out, roll in sprinkles so that they stick to the icing. The owl plastic plates were purchased several years ago at Target.

Take pre-made pizza crust, cut into a heart shape with your kitchen sheers, garnish with your favorite ingredients, bake and EAT!

I shared this last February and it's so fun, I think it needs to be repeated again. I'm also including a recipe for apple-stuffed french toast. It's out of this world!! The pictures below were taken with a traditional french toast recipe.

Cut out a heart from a piece of paper. Set the heart aside and use the heart outline to form a stencil. Place the stencil on top of your french toast and sprinkle powdered sugar in the stencil.

Remove stencil and shake excess powdered sugar into the sink. Repeat with additional pieces of french toast. Enjoy!

Have a delicious weekend!

That is by far the best Valentine box I have seen. Where was this when my boys were in Elementary. Love it. Thanks for the yummies. Those deer are beautiful. Our birds have been abundant this season with all the snow.

This is why I can't skip blog visits- that stencil idea would have been marvelous on our V Day pancakes!
