F2: Candy Hearts

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about those little candy hearts that you get for Valentine's day.

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:

If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution. Also, if you want to see a particular topic— feel free to suggest it as well (I'm always looking for new inspirations).

Back when my wife and I were still dating (and before we were even engaged) we both attended our church's charge conference. Unfortunately, this meeting was held on Valentine's day and I had to attend in order to report. My then girlfriend bought some Necco Valentines candies to share in order to make the meeting at least somewhat festive (she has this amazing sense of occasion).

During the meeting we were passing back and forth the candies much like you do when you pass back and forth notes in class. At one point, I pulled out a candy that said "marry me" on it and gave it to her. She may have smiled a bit, but we were so much in the moment that I didn't pay it much mind (I probably thought others were more funny and plain forgot about what I passed to her).

Fast forward to our one year anniversary. On that day, my wife gave me a small box with a lot of little trinkets in it. If you are familiar with the movie Clueless, Tai does the same thing in that she collects those little trinkets that remind her of the relationship she has. One of the trinkets that my now wife gave me was this same candy heart that I completely forgot about.

Because this month includes Valentine's Day, the topic for the entire month will be "Love is in the Food". Here are some possible ways of interpreting this…

  • Talk about a Valentine's date you went on that involved food.
  • Does love "really" go into cooking?
  • Talk about some foods you love.
  • Made by Mom with love.

So… if you have anything that relates to this topic, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in the next weeks feast. Don't feel obligated to come up with something if you have already written on this topic in the past— your links are always welcome.

That was sweet. My friend recently found the heart candy recipe on the internet and made them....they are even better than the store bought...these are a little softer, too.
