I can smell the love in the air. All those romantics are out in full force planning the perfect Valentine’s Day. The whole world gets in on the action and romance takes over everyone’s brains. It’s such a sweet time. Such romantic time. Such a…
excuse me while I hurl.
Seriously people it’s just a day like any other. You can love your special person every day of the year and not just one day a year. Plus all the sappiness is a bit much for a gal like me. It’s so over the top sweet it makes me…
Don’t get me wrong. I love “love”. I love romantic movies. I love romantic gestures. I just do not quite get why we need to mark it on the calendar like it’s such a hard thing to remember to love the one you’re with. Bugs the crap out me. You should not need a cheesy commercial telling you to buy a gift for your partner. You should just do stuff like that because you love your partner. Honestly if I see one more commercial that makes young folks think they need to spend hordes of money to get their significant other to love them, well, you know the drill…
I think I’m gonna hurl.
I also think it puts too much pressure on people who are not in a relationship. Valentine’s Day is sort of a cruel holiday for single folks. The commercials make people think you are a loser if you’re alone. I say hell to the no. Enjoy being alone while you can. One day you’ll be married with a house full of kids and pets and you won’t even be able to use the loo without being interrupted 10 times. Then you will think back to a time when things were quiet. I love my family but my god man, they are loud. Some days I’d love a little peace and quiet. So if you have that, enjoy it while it lasts. Don’t let the commercials and all the hoopla get to you. It’s all a conspiracy that makes people like me…
Okay so now that we’ve got the warm and fuzzies out of the way, enjoy your romantic milkshake for Valentine’s Day. I used one straw, cuz sharing food or drinks…
makes me wanna hurl!
If you want to make this with Red Velvet Ice Cream I have two recipes for it on my site. You can find one that uses cake mix in it. You can also find one that is red velvet with no cake added. I love red velvet ice cream. You can do so much with it.
I participated in #GreatShakes back in June. It was a multi blogger event to help promote a cookbook called Thoroughly Modern Milkshakes by Adam Ried. The one they shipped to me initially seemed to get hung up at customs, so they shipped out another copy. In the meantime the first copy finally arrived. So I ended up with two copies of the book. No one needs two copies of a cookbook so I’ve decided to giveaway my spare copy of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILKSHAKES to 1 lucky reader. I mean it is the week of love and giving right. And I do love all my readers. So it just makes good sense if you ask me. Hurling aside.
To enter leave a comment telling me what your favourite milkshake is. Easy peasy.

The recipe for this is on their website and you can vote if you like while you’re there. This was a ton of fun to participate in. You all know how much I love chocolate so any excuse to whip up chocolate desserts is a good day in my book.
