Happy Thursday, everyone. I do not have to work tomorrow. Yippee! Of course the reason is not a good one. Hubby has to have another surgery on his foot tomorrow. Not Yippee. It is not major, thank goodness, but will be inconvenient as he will have to stay off of it for a while. Is it odd that we now consider surgery an inconvenience instead of a big deal?
So, it is left to me to make Valentine's Day dinner. Usually Hubby does this. I don't know that I have ever cooked on V day, so I asked what he would like and his response, "Cannelloni."
Ummmm...yeah....I have never made that. I have a vague idea about how to make it, so asked what he would like it stuffed with. His answer "cheese." Ummmm....Okay....what type of sauce, red or white? "White." As you can see, he was not giving very detailed answers. LOL! I went to the store and could not find cannelloni, but did find manicotti shells and later found out they are the same thing. (I was NOT making my own pasta sheets and wrapping them. Too much work for me!)
I also bough ricotta cheese, since I already have mozarella and parmesan. So, I will be making 3 cheese and spinache manicotti with Alfredo sauce. Yum! Yum! We will have a salad and garlic bread to accompany.
My dilemma, what to make for dessert. Hubby LOVES dessert. He loves ALL desserts, so would be happy with cookies, brownies, cake, pie, ice cream. You get the drift. But I would like to make some special dessert. Maybe it is too early in the morning to think about dessert, so nothing just sounds incredible.
So....can anyone give me some inspiration?
