I love you, so here’s some chocolate.

I probably don’t have to tell you this…. Tomorrow is Valentines day. You probably know that, because every single retail store from here to the edge of the earth is bedecked in red and pink. (I so seldom get the chance to use ‘bedecked’ in a sentence, I just had to!)

I am not one of those ‘anti Valentines day’ people, but I’ve never really been big into celebrating it either. It just kind of comes and goes. In the past, I looked forward to the clearance candy —- chyeauh! But eating a strictly keto diet means that those days are over. (It’s ok, we make our own chocolates, and you better believe I’ll be indulging in a few of those!)

Lately, I’ve been thinking an awful lot about our relationship to food and it’s role in our society. (Don’t worry, I’m not gonna get too deep here, just an observation!) We use food as a form of expression — at least, I think most people do.

Happy Birthday – here’s a cake!
Congrats, Grad – here’s a giant cookie!
You got that promotion?! Let’s have a birthday dinner!
Pregnant? Gender reveal cupcakes!
I love you! Please take this heart-shaped box of truffles. (mmmm truffles)

So just to start a dialogue, and get your thoughts on the matter, here’s a question:

What would you like to receive for Valentine’s Day, besides candy?

What is your other ‘love language’? Tell me in the comments, or come find us on Facebook @42Bakery and be a part of the discussion!
