Valentine’s Day Ideas

February 7, 2011

So those who are single, dream of the day when they can wake up next to someone special.

Those who are married with kids, dream of the day when they can wake up without a little one who has climbed in their bed over night.

And some love the early morning cuddling, especially when they wake up to hear those sweet words….

“Mommy, I have to go potty”

Have no fear, she did not wet the bed with me in it.  She recognized the URGE.  This is HUGE people. Monumental.

I am so in love.

Looking for special ideas for Valentine’s Day?

How about Pasta with Clams in a white  cream sauce?

1 box pasta

fresh clams (must use fresh, rather than frozen.  These are like $8 for a dozen), washed

1 can chopped clams in juice

2 tbsp butter

one chopped shallot

several minced garlic cloves

heavy cream

white wine

salt and pepper, to taste

chopped parsley

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated

1.  Cook Pasta as directed on box.

2.  Melt butter in large frying pan over low heat and saute shallots and garlic.

3.  Add canned chopped clams with some juice.  Add white wine.

4. Cook for 5 minutes on medium temp till sauce is reduced.

5.  Add whole clams and cover.  Cook for 5 more minutes will all clams open.  If there are any that do not open, throw them out.

6.  Add heavy cream, parmesan, salt and pepper and bring to a boil

7.  When sauce is thickened, add parsley and pour sauce over cooked pasta.

I promise to give an recipe a day this week.  I mean we all know that the way to guys heart is through is stomach, even if that isn’t anatomically correct.

    I love that, what a big girl, recipe sounds great, we would have to buy the frozen ones, and here they would cost more than the fresh ones there, had a great conversation with Anabelle last night, can’t wait until I am there, she is sooooooooooo cute, and smart and adorable.
