Summer Ross said...

Great list- except the raw steak- lol
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Linda Kage said...


I've never before thought of how much red food there really is out there.

Laura Eno said...

I laughed at the rare steak...I thought of a punch to the eye and raw steak (eww!) being applied to it. I'll take the strawberries, dipped in chocolate, please!

Carol Kilgore said...

Ann - Your blouse is even red!

Summer - You either like it or you don't, I think.

Linda - There's a lot.

Laura - I like my steak cooked medium rare. Live-In Handyman calls it raw :)

Joanne said...

An addendum, please ... CHOCOLATE covered cherries :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Rare steak? Why?

But now I want to try velvet cake.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Watermelon might be hard to find...

Carol Kilgore said...

Joanne - Live-In Handyman loves those...but chocolate isn't red.

Clarissa - Why not :)

Alex - Depends on where you are.

Lydia K said...

I'm a steak lover, so I get that.

VR Barkowski said...

I'm all about rare steak and a glass of good Chianti. Why wait until Valentine's Day when the weekends coming up? :)

Joanna St. James said...

Steak tartare yummy
I have an addition too
all sorts of lip gloss will be consumed today too

Elspeth Antonelli said...

I have to try red velvet cake. Have to. It's good to have goals.

Terry Odell said...

Well, I don't care for much red meat, and is it OK to cover those cherries in chocolate?

Donna Hole said...

I prefer pink wine - as in blush or zinfendel. But, wine always works :)


Arlee Bird said...

Never associated watermelon with Valentine's Day but okay.

All I know now is now you've made me hungry.

Pinot Noir is my second favorite, after Chianti.

Colette said...

I vote for Cabernet and Chocolate. Very dark chocolate.

Manzanita said...

I don't know what Red Velvet Cake is exactly but it sounds exciting. Like a slinky red velvet victorian dress. Love your lists.
Love and Peace.

Carol Kilgore said...

Collete - Cabernet is my third choice after Chianti and Pinot Noir.

Manzanita - Red Velvet Cake IS exciting! Thanks.
