Here's our plan.
Heart Shaped Scones
Egg Scramble with Ham, Chives & fresh Ricotta
Lunch - (our date meal while the kids take their nap)
Puff Pastry Cheese "Straws"
-simple puff pastry twists sprinkled with salt & pepper, pecorino & parmagiano.
Roasted Beets with leeks, pine nuts & goat cheese
-coat whole beets with olive oil & salt & pepper in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes, until tender.
Do this ahead of time so they are cool enough to handle - rub the peel off & slice (into heart shapes!)
saute sliced leeks & toast pine nuts.
arrange the beets on your plates & sprinkle with leeks, nuts & cheese.
Fresh Pasta hearts layered with Fresh Ricotta Cheese & drizzled with brown butter & sage
I am going to make my own pasta & roll it & cut it into hearts. Then do a layered type ravioli dish.
I'm going to make the ricotta. It's really easy.
You just need a lot of whole milk.
-Since Rosemary is a so-called aphrodisiac. And, men love beef. And, Ruby Port sounds Valentine-y.
Lemon Cupcakes with lemon cream cheese icing
We have so many lemons. Our tree is about to explode.
Tomato Soup with heart shaped cheese toasts
Broccoli (I don't know why. Just because it's a kid meal.)
