Valentines

My Valentines

I made this card and knitted heart for my husband and spent all afternoon making Lemon Pots de Creme and "Cannelloni with Spinach, Goat Cheese, Walnuts, and Roasted Garlic-Tomato Sauce" from Fields of Greens (sorry no pics).

I love this recipe book! I bought it years ago after I had to give back the library's copy because I'd re-borrowed it the maximum number of times. There are no photos in the book but you don't miss them because all the recipes just sound so delicious. Most of them involve a bit of work though, there's no quick after work dinners here. The cannelloni was fantastic (and there's enough left over for tonight, woo hoo!), the flavours were so good together. Roasted garlic is amazing, it has such a creamy, smokey flavour.

Quick tip: I used Latina fresh lasagna sheets for the cannelloni instead of buying the dried pasta tubes, they were so much better. Each sheet made 2 cannelloni so there's enough in the packet for 16 cannelloni. Just plonk 1/4 cup of filling on your pasta sheet, spread it out along the edge and roll into a tube - this also much easier than trying to stuff the mixture into a tiny tube!

Now time to go reheat the leftovers :)
