I truly have a wonderful wife. Rebecca makes me so happy.
Yesterday (i.e. Valentineʼs Day) I didnʼt get home until 19:30 on account of it was a Thursday and I have a class on Thursday that doesnʼt end until 6:45 and the bus comes at 6:53 and the bus takes 35 minutes to get to my home.
Rebecca had been advertising something called “A Valentineʼs Day Extravaganza” for over a week now, and I didnʼt really know what to expect. When I got home and opened the door the most amazing aroma entered my nose; it was an olfactory sensation not easily rivaled. Rebecca was barely finishing dinner.
And do you know what she did?
A few weeks ago Rebecca and I ate out at Buca di Beppo and we had, among other things, something called “Chicken Saltimbocca” described thus:
Chicken Saltimbocca: Juicy sautéed chicken breasts, layered with fresh sage and prosciutto, and topped with artichoke hearts, capers and our delicate lemon butter sauce.
Well, I loved it so much and for Valentineʼs Day Rebecca recreated this meal for us! And it was so much more delicious than I remembered it being. And we had fettuccine alfredo and asparagus (yum!) and ciabatta bread for good measure.
My wife is amazing.
