in honor of impending valentines day…we decided to do what we used to do. heart-shaped pizzas. yep, that’s right…at our restaurant, mom and dad used to make heart-shaped pizzas on valentines day. it required a little creative dough manipulation…but for our finely-honed pizza slapping skills (we took pizza slapping and throwing very seriously), it was a festive challenge. read here for more overton & AJ’S backstory.
back to my story…last night, we made a heart-shaped pizza.
with this in the dough of course (well, not the actual bottle cap…the shiner beer)…
and in honor of the late and wonderful shirley temple, amie made these…
with 100% black cherry juice, a little bubbley delight (sprite), maraschino cherries, and crushed ice…topped off with dollar store heart-shaped crazy straws of course. (which i would like to thank the dollar general for the oh-so-cute valentine’s day awesomeness…where crepe paper is alive and well.
here’s to y’all on valentines day! may it be filled with all kinds o’ heart-shaped happiness from the ones you love!
