Month of Love: Day 14

"They do not love that do not show their love."
William Shakespeare, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Act I, Scene 1
This year I wanted to do something special for my hubby.
So starting on Monday I began cooking his favorite meals...
tacos, Reuben sandwiches, a heart shaped meatloaf...
and tonight a meal from the land of amore--Italy
(or at least my version of Italian food).
 We are starting to get changes in the yard outdoors--
promises of the spring still to come,
and I wanted to bring a little spring to our table
with some 'lovebirds', a lantern, some greenery and these napkin bundles.
BTW--sunstarved Oregonians.
Did you hear tomorrow's forecast?
I am giddy just thinking of it...
today, when a friend and I were on a roadtrip
we actually saw blue skies and a farmer in his field.
I should also say, while it is still Valentine's Day--
Happy Birthday Dear Oregon!
And now back to our meal
(and further proof why I am not a food blogger)
First up antipasto...do you have a favorite?
I confess there will probably be no more green olives by tomorrow eve...
I LOVE green olives:)
And at the same time,
a tossed salad.
The main course,
spaghetti and meatballs
(my DH said they were as GOOD as THAT Italian restaurant...
perhaps you know which one I am referring to?
I LOVE their chicken marsala;
he always, always orders their spaghetti and meatballs...)
 They were pretty good,
and so was the garlic bread.
Mmmm, Italian garlic bread...
And then there was dessert...
but since it is almost tomorrow
and since we are going to have a winter 'heat wave'
and since I am going to be busy...
Happy Valentine's Day
and night all.

Your Italian dinner looks so yummy. I'm sure it was very much appreciated. Green olives are my favorites too. We're having a beautiful sunshiny day here in Spokane. It's the first one in a long time! Have a wonderful weekend.

Yea! Another green olive lover :-)
I am SO happy to hear you are enjoying a day of sunshine there! It seems like you've had even more gray days than we have this winter...I think we both are ready for spring.
Have a great Friday.
Blessings, Aimee
