Mealtime Mama: Shake it up this Valentine’s Day!

We recently noticed the cutest Valentine’s Day cards at Chick-fil-A that we think would be perfect to give a teacher, friend or even your honey.

The outside of the card has a picture of one of Chick-fil-A’s delicious shakes and a coupon for a small hand-spun shake inside. At $2.99 a pop, this is a sweet deal! And don’t those Chick-fil-A shakes in the picture above look delicious? Who wouldn’t fall in love with such a great card?

The message inside the card says: “Hope it’s good to the last slurp! Happy Valentine’s Day” Then on the inside flap of the card it says, “He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” Psalm 107:9

Speaking of shakes, we found a couple of great recipes for this yummy dessert. Perfect for the kiddos — or their hard-working mamas — as a Valentine’s Day treat.
