Tip: When making meringue, make sure no yolks get into the whites, and beaters and bowl are very clean. If difficulty making peaks, sometimes a dash of cream of tartar will help.
So a very Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, my dear friends! You’re not just one kind of Valentine. You are many! You are a kind Valentine. You’ve always done for others. You’ll reach out your hand many times to those in need. Think about all the people you’ve helped in your life. That’s why you’re my Valentine!
You’re a hardworking Valentine. You’re not afraid of rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done, and you don’t stop until it’s done and done right! At times, you’ve held down 2 or more jobs to pay the bills, and you hung in there until they were all paid! That’s why you’re my Valentine!
You are a sensitive Valentine. Your heart is tender, and you wear your feelings on both sleeves. You’re also compassionate to the needs of others and often feel their pain inside of you. You are sometimes innocent and childlike, which makes you so endearing. That’s why you’re my Valentine!
You are a funny Valentine. No matter what is happening to your life, you can always muster up a smile, then a giggle, and wherever it goes from there. And when you are blue, you know what to do. You make them laugh till their sides hurt! Chances are, you were the class clown in school… you know I was! That’s why you are my Valentine!
You are a smart Valentine. You’ve gone through school and are educated in many different areas, and you keep learning and improving your skills. And you’re street smart, too, and you have a lot of common sense. When there’s a problem to be solved, everyone comes to you, and you never disappoint them. That’s why you’re my Valentine!
You are a loyal Valentine. When you believe in someone or something, you do it with your whole heart and soul. You have friends in your life that have been there for a long time, maybe since elementary or high school, and you cherish them so! That’s why you are my Valentine!
You could travel the whole world and not find anyone like you because there isn’t anyone like you, and that’s why I’ve chosen YOU as my Valentine! No matter what you do today, know that you are loved by so many people, and one of those people is ME!
So have a healthy month, my Valentines…. Get in your workouts….eat right…. And come to the clubhouse for support.
I’ll see you on the website…
