Letʼs talk about how awesome my wife is.

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.
