A beautiful bouquet from my funny Valentine.
This Valentine's Day I decided to make a little dinner for my sweetheart and two of our favorite people: my parents. :]
Then there was the question of the menu... But what better to serve on Valentine's Day than food from the country where I left my heart? So Italian it was!
A primo: risotto. Making risotto also means standing over a hot stove for about half an hour making sure it cooks correctly. :P
Finished, con spinaci.
The secundo was [Americanized] pappa al pomodoro, a Tuscan bread soup.
A contadino: piselli con cipolla - peas in the Italian style with onion, garlic and olive oil.
Mandarini for dessert...
And poor-excuse-of-gelato al biscotto. ;] Gosh, I miss Italian gelato!
E and I also observed Valentine's Day this weekend with a breakfast trip to the restaurant where we had our first date almost three years ago! So crazy!
He is so silly. And I adore him. :]
