A 'Night Off' and a 'Night Out'

Yes, that special day of love is right around the corner, and I have to mention the one couple that I have always held the highest regard for in the 'love' department - my parents.
In this era of 'disposable' and 'throwaway', my parents never once thought that their love wouldn't endure.  They were the shining example of how to work out any problem, by staying together no matter what the 'weather'!

Dad married mother when she was 18, and he was 22 and just a few days away from heading off to the Army.  Theirs was a simple ceremony with very few in attendance.  A quiet celebration of love.  They were approaching their 60th wedding anniversary this past December, when Dad suddenly died.  He passed away just 29 days away from their special day.

So,  mother will now spend her first Valentine's Day without him.  We can't replace what Dad would do for her, but we can certainly help her take her mind off of missing him, by taking the night off, with a  night out.  Tonight the family will attend the theater together, with dinner beforehand. 

Just in case you're thinking of serving up a simple supper before  your night out, here's a tried-and-true favorite 'dressed up' for the occasion.  It's guaranteed to bring back warm memories, and certainly a smile to your face!
Happy Valentine's Day~
