This year we had to celebrate Valentines Day on February 13. Joe had work on Monday, and sometimes he doesn’t get home until 10 p.m. I’d hate to be one of those people who says they ‘don’t really care’ about this day, because I do. I just don’t like to make a big deal of it. This year we used the holiday as an excuse to sleep in, exchange cute cards, drink a lot of wine, and make a fancy lasagna dinner. All in all, a good day.
We agreed on ‘no presents, just a nice meal,’ but of course Joe had to get me something (I’m not really complaining, it was very thoughtful and perfect). He also gets major points for picking out a sweet handmade card from my favorite stationary store, Lion in the Sun. I get butterflies thinking about him walking in there to pick out a card. I also got his card there – Classic Love Songs jukebox style!
This is the amazing sauce cooking. Pork neck bones, veal, beef, sausage, Italian tomatoes, onions, garlic, love. The smell was godly. The cheese was shredded FRESH mozz, ricotta, fresh parm, and all fresh herbs.. google Michael Symon’s recipe .. :)
Now, Lucy’s got some es’plaining to do here. I forgot to take pictures of the finished product! Shame on me thinking I can be a successful food blogger. This lasagna was so amazing, You just have to check back to not only get the pictures of the next one we make, but also the recipe. It’s that good folks.
