Valentine Vignettes

So my thoughts and feelings on Valentine's have evolved over the years.  I went from loving it to loathing it to finally arrive at a happy indifference. That is, of course, subject to change.  Next year I might be crying in sweatpants or planning some ridiculous, over-the-top Valentine's gesture. I have a way of surprising myself in these matters.  As long as I'm not throwing a would-be Valentine's gift across a tanning salon (again) I am content.
Raspberry marbled cheesecake. I sort of overdid it on the marbling, but I think it's very pretty.
this is an experimental recipe. Roasted cabbage with fennel and apple. If it's good, I'll post the recipe.
picked-over Valentine's flowers can be pretty too.

Wishing you a happily indifferent Valentine's. 
(this was the infamous gift I threw across a tanning salon at its intended recipient who dumped me. A Coach wallet in a giant box of Skittles. I'm sure they are still finding Skittles all these years later)
