Happy Hallmark Holiday

February 15, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

While out at the grocery store yesterday, I noticed a ton of men doing their last minute shopping for their Valentines… overpriced roses, cheesy cards, and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates.  Blah.  

Since the girls were coming over for dinner, I decided to try out a new box of pasta we had gotten back around Christmas.  I love using my friends as guinea pigs and hope that I don’t poison anyone every time I cook.  So far, no one’s died from my dinners so I guess I have a pretty good success rate.   I ended up cooking butternut squash ravioli in a creamy sage butter sauce with sauteed chicken (also marinated in fresh sage, olive oil, and garlic marinade).  On the side I broiled some asparagus drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette & garlic-infused olive oil.  Everything took 15 minutes to cook so it was the fastest dinner ever!  And since everyone seemed to go for round two, I guess I did ok.  I didn’t get a photo of my creation last night, but it was just as good leftover for dinner tonight!

And yes, I was too lazy to bake dessert this time, but that’s what we have Wegman’s for.

I did end up getting a silly heart-shaped box of chocolates after all… I wonder if it’s a coincidence that I got the Asian-themed Valentine.  Hmph.
