Happy Valentines Day! I will “celebrate” this day by posting pictures of Heart-Shaped Things!
Here’s a close up of a Heart-Shaped Potato found at the Potato Festival at Sentry Hill Historic House, UK.
Heart Shaped Bacon for Valentine’s Day Breakfast!
Here’s How to Make it!
- You will need 12 slices of bacon to make 12 hearts.
- Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).
- Cut your bacon slices in half.
- Use 2 pieces of the cut in half bacon and shape them into a heart on a sheet pan (make sure this pan has sides so the grease doesn’t get all over your oven!)
- Bake for 18 – 25 minutes (or until done)
- Serve with a heart shaped Egg!

The blood donation mascot of Iwate prefecture is Kokoron-chan, whose name is derived from the word “kokoro” (heart). She was designed to evoke an image of peace, warm-heartedness and blood.
