Happy Valentines!

Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Valentines has never been one of my favorite holidays, as we all know, it's very commercialized. Being in school 5 days a week and my boyfriend working evenings (till midnight), the weekends are the only days we really get to spend more than an hour together lately. Valentines was an excuse for us to take time for ourselves and enjoy a nice dinner by ourselves.
Originally I had assumed we would be going out for valentines, but Matt made me a homecooked meal...Aww! He had been preparing all day Saturday while I was at home & reviewing class notes and made the chicken teriyaki sushi. To be honest, i'm not a fan of fish and Chicken Teriyaki is our favorite sushi, one of the few I'll actually eat when we go out for sushi.

The set up.

He hand-rolled the sushi which included sushi rice, cucumber, and pan-fried teriyaki chicken. He made and fried the chicken dumpling in a deep fryer. I was honestly very impressed, as I do all of the cooking around our house (he loves to cook breakfast though!) It was completely unexpected and I was extremely happy he took the time to do this all for me.

What are your plans for Valentines Day? I have class until 5PM tomorrow, and then am off to the hospital until 8PM or so to research my patients, and he won't be home until late, which is why we celebrated today. Please tell me your V-Day stories tomorrow! :D
