“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” ~ Helen Keller

The other day my husband (that still sounds weird for a newlywed) came home with a bag full of goodies after a trip through Amish Country.

“This is part of your Valentine’s Gift” he said, holding the bag high above my head.

“Ok! Let me look!!” I said as I tore through the bags.

In the bag he came home with maple syrup breakfast sausages (they’re amazing cut up in scrambled eggs!), three kinds of caffeine-free teas, snicker doodle cookies (which Layla my dog ate one of shortly after), red velvet whoopee pies, shoe-fly pie, fresh mozzarella cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano, and two types of sauce/dips (raspberry and mango) -YUM!

That night I cooked up his favorite, Chicken Parmigiano with the fresh mozzarella cheese of course and grated Parmigiano Reggiano over the al dente spaghetti.

Tonight for Heart Day I’m cooking up some of his favorites: butternut squash risotto with sun-dried tomatoes and marinated grilled steak dipped in spicy extra virgin olive oil. For dessert, fried ice cream. It’s a first for me. If it turns out good, I’ll post it, otherwise I won’t ; )
