Valentine Sandwiches


Happy Valentine's Day!! I decided just to make something simple for this day, heart shaped sandwiches. I woke up quite early this morning to get this ready by breakfast..some white and wholemeal bread filled with ham and cheese, some with egg mayonnaise, some with marmalade and strawberry jam and decorate. Get a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out bread, cheese and the ham slices. Actually these are some leftover ones that i saved for photographing later in the morning.



Have a lovely day today with your loved ones, your family and your dear friends. Well, even if you are single, unattached or your friends might be busy, there's no problem, you can always celebrate it on your own..there're no strict rules that says that we have to celebrate it with someone, ha! Most importantly, we still got to love ourselves! Have fun everyone and lots of hugs and kisses from me!

  26. These really are lovely sandwiches. I use to make sandwiches like this for my children when they were young. Their fillings were no where near as nice as the ones you've used here, but the thought was there. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  29. Sorry Lena, I'm late for this!See, I have to take one big round before I could reach back here. You know what I mean! So many to to but so little time. Happy Belated Valentine's Day to you. Btw, how was your night? Nothing special happening here, just greet each other with lovely words that's all. I don't want him to waste money on those expensive flowers. :o) I would prefer if he buys something that I need instead. Good lord, you must be thinking what kind of woman is this! Stone age? hahaha.... However, hope you're enjoying your day, sweetie.
    Cheers, Kristy
