Courage, dear heart :: Narnia vaLENTines


“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.” 
― C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

With St. Valentine's Day falling on Ash Wednesday this year, Chiquita decided to pass out a quote from her favorite book series, along with a pre-lenten treat and promises to pray for each of her vaLENTines.  She picked two of our Rycraft Cookie Stamps and a gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe.


Unbelievable Peanut Butter Cookies 

Ingredients: 
1 cup peanut butter • 1 cup sugar • 1 tsp vanilla • 1 egg

Directions:
Mix all ingredients well. Form one inch balls and place on engrossed cookie sheet. Stamp with cookie stamp. Bake at 350˚F for 10-12 minutes.

While she had the cookie stamps out, she also made a batch of Cream Cheese Candy. 





Our original St. Valentine's Day Mailboxes have been too small the last few years (some of the kids bring HUGE valentines) so she quickly decorated a new "mailbox" using one of the coloring pages from her Chronicles of Narnia Coloring Book
