It is no secret to my nearest and dearest that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Valentines Day. Its a holiday that so many people love to hate, but I for one am totally drinking the Valentines Day punch. Give me red, pink, and anything heart shaped.
I do get why so many hate the holiday, the romantic pressure is high and in my single years it really highlighted my loneliness. Plus Valentines Day can be expensive.
I hate to say it, but If these are the reasons you hate Valentines Day, then you are doing it wrong!
This is a day that you should focus on showing love and there are way better ways to show someone love than with $$$$. Write a love letter, give the gift of your time and service, or wake up a little early and make them a warm bowl of delicious oatmeal.
With this in mind I decided to make an Oatmeal perfect for Lovers. Its beautiful, sophisticated, and easy, everything you want in a Lover…I mean oatmeal.
For the rosewater whipped cream I added a little rosewater extract and a drop of neon pink coloring, which makes this dish almost too pretty to eat. The pistachios are a great contrast to fresh raspberries. This oatmeal recipe has a great balance of salty and sweet, perfect for all the lovers and haters out there. I hope you enjoy.
