A VALENTINE SORBET RECIPE

A VALENTINE DAY RECIPE
YOU  ARE  MY SPECIAL VALENTINE
On Love and affection between intimate companions
celebrated on feb 14th
Red roses, as we think of them today, are the traditional
symbol for love and romance
The most common modern form of the poem is:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you
William Wallace Denslow- illustrations forRoses are red, from a 1901 edition of MOTHER GOOSE
Traditional: published in England 1784


ORIGINS- The origins of the poem may be traced at least as far
back as to the following lines written in 1590 by Sir Edmund Spenser
from his epcic THE FAERIE QUEEN
It was upon a Sommers shynie day,
When Titan faire his beames did display,
In a fresh fountaine, farre from all mens vew,
She bath'd her brest, the boyling heat t'allay;
She bath'd with roses red, and violets blew,
And all the sweetest flowers, that in the forrest grew
YOU ARE MY VALENTINE HONEY

I USE HAAGEN DAZS SORBET
RECIPE
VALENTINE SORBET IN CANTALOUPE

1 scoop raspberry sorbet
1 scoop lemon sorbet
Half small size cantaloupe - seeded and refrigerate for a few hours
Juice from 1 orange
A pinch of salt

If you like rosebuds, put a few red ones on top of sorbet

Mix orange juice with salt and drizzle inside cantaloupe
Put sorbet scoops on top.
Serve immediately.
THANK YOU


  HAPPY  VALENTINE's DAY TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND READERS

  13. Hi Wan, wow! I am impressed with your this very attractive, entertaining and romantic valentine day love posting. Outstanding!
    And that valentine sorbet one spoon in mouth is a forget mother's name.
    On Valentine night, a gentleman can turn to being a poet....with an offering like this.

    If I could be anything, I'd wish to be a tear to be conceived in your heart, born in your eye and die at your lips.
    And Wan, if you were to hold that single red rose in front of your mirror, you will see 2.
    You keep a song in your heart, stay young, stay beautiful.
    Lee.

  19. Roses are red MY LOVE...
    Sugar is sweet MY LOVE..
    Don't forget the last two words, will make eyes twinkle..

    It's nice to be young eh?

    Remembered my ex-boss, u know who, his late mum's birthday was on Valentines' day, I had to look around for 68 pink roses to send to her.

    At her age, 68yrs then - still so romantic as any 18yr old girl. Really miss her a lot.

    Cheers.
