Every day is Valentines in our household ;)He he… my husband and I love to celebrate life all the time. We love to open up a bottle and toast to whatever day of the week it is or the small successes and joys of life! “Here’s to Saturday!” was what we said on Valentines ;)
We were going to go out on Saturday to celebrate the traditional way for Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to use a nice gift certificate we had. However, no reservations were available for Saturday or Sunday! We both spend enough time on the road, that a day at home, was thoroughly enjoyed!
We rejoiced by opening up a nice bottle of wine – a selection from Cakebread Cellars (I gifted John the opportunity to attend a Sommelier Course for his Birthday! – I’ll write more about this later!), and grazed on a variety of cheeses (there is always a few choices in our fridge), had olives and devoured John’s homemade rolls that we dipped in vinegar and Italian olive oil (Only the best in John’s minds – especially after our trip to Italy for our honeymoon – another story to write about!).
The key to any wining and dining experience in our home is presentation! When something as simple as I described, is platted and served with elegance, it is savoured that much more and is sure to taste more amazing!
