Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentines Day
Luna and Zorro (RIP).

I wish you all a wonderful day full of chocolate, yummy food, wine, and hopefully flowers!  My night will be filled with home cooking, candles, and wine with the Boy and of course, Odin.

On the menu:
  • Steamed artichoke with mayo for me and olive oil with sea salt for the Boy. This is what we had on our first date, and his first introduction to peeling and eating the leaves of an artichoke. 
  • Braised Short Ribs with Horseradish Crème Fraîche. Recipe courtesy of Smitten Kitchen. 
  • Potato Dauphinoise 
  • Homemade Tiramisu (recipe and pictures to come later this week)
  • 33/33/33 Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, Montepulciano Italian blend (can't remember the name)

PS the above picture is from a Valentine's Day card my mom sent to me while in school.  She would do this for other occasions as well such as during finals week or St. Patrick's Day, always with the dogs posed in different position or costume.

PSS Zorro was Luna's littermate who we had to put down during my junior year :(  However, has been reincarnated as Odin because Odin is his carbon copy both physically and personality wise.


  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous mals! I rarely see people with them!

    By the way, I'm giving away a really cute ring on my blog. You should check it out!


  2. Aren't they so great!? We have one that we adopted and we are fostering one.. I want to keep her but 4 is a bit much : (
