13 February 2011 – Grammy Valentine




It is Valentine's Eve, and the Grammy Awards are on tonight! Plus, it was a beautiful, warm weekend, so Winter's hold is breaking. I'm excited to see Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand perform on the Grammys tonight! I like Lady Gaga, but the whole "egg" thing just seems a little much. Plus, her new song sounds like a blatant rip off of Madonna. Oh well, on to tonight's Sunday Supper...

At Jeff's request, I prepared the most classic of comfort foods, baked macaroni and cheese! I've tried many recipes, but by far, the best one out there is Martha Stewart's "Perfect Macaroni and Cheese." Even the New York Times agrees with my assessment! Anyway, it came out pretty damn perfect tonight. To accompany and to get something green in the meal, I made a wilted spinach salad with bacon balsamic vinaigrette. For dessert, I made Jeff, an admitted chocoholic, a molten chocolate lava cake. It was was pretty divine!

So here's to all you funny Valentines out there. I wish you love, molten chocolate and a little Babs and Dylan to make it all worthwhile. Make someone happy...

The Menu:

- Perfect Baked Macaroni and Cheese

- Wilted Organic Spinach with Bacon Balsamic Vinaigrette

- Molten Chocolate Lava Cake
