Happy Valentine’s Day!
A big thank you to the Benders, who inspired today’s #FebPhotoADay – “heart” – with their Valentine’s Day package. The chocolate-covered strawberries were beautiful! Not to mention delicious.
We had a great holiday here in Chicago. Though we technically celebrated at Wildfire last Friday, I couldn’t help but cook something special up tonight. Originally I was going to make risotto-a-go-go, but at the last minute we switched to roasted red pepper pasta from Decio.
I combined the pasta – boiled for 5-6 minutes – with chicken sausage, shrimp, mushrooms and real red peppers, cooked together with a bit of white wine marinade. It made for the perfect Valentine’s feast.
Speaking of white wine…
This pinot gris from Milbrandt Vineyards was fantastic. It was part of an anniversary gift from my Aunt Barb, who lives in Washington. We loved it!
After dinner, we spent a bit of time catching up on our DVR with chocolate-covered strawberries.
It was a great evening with my husband. Happy Valentine’s Day, Bobby! I think you are bear-y cute.
How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?
I loved this post from Danielle because it truly captured what the day means to me. I love celebrating with Bobby, but it’s also a chance for me to tell friends and family just how much I love them, too.
