Lately we’ve been more of The Engaged Couple and less of The Culinary Couple. Every weekend either Nick drives to State College or Emily drives to New Jersey. Sometimes we meet in Dover to work on wedding planning. All of this traveling leaves little time for grocery shopping or energy for cooking.
We’ve been enjoying far too many mango habanero wings from Otto’s, sandwiches from Jimmy Johns, and brick-oven pizzas from Faccia Luna. We did try a great sushi joint in Hoboken a few weeks ago and have ordered thai food several times. We know … you expect more from The Culinary Couple. And that’s why we’re making it our goal to dust off the cookbooks and get back into our aprons.
Until then, we leave you with some photos from Valentine’s Day. Last year we cooked a fabulous gourmet meal, but this year we took a little help from Wegman’s. We started with chocolate martinis. For dinner we enjoyed stuffed clams and lobster bisque in a soudough bread bowl (for two). And for dessert we made chocolate-covered strawberries.
