Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I hope you all plan to do something special with someone you love.
We are leaving this afternoon for a weekend getaway to Minneapolis. We’ve had a couple of very long weeks with our favorite three-year-old and I think a change of scenery is in order.
Oy, three year olds! The most irrational humans on the planet. You haven’t lived until you’ve:
Timed someone’s pee schedule
Had a conversation about who gets to say the words “fuckin’ ass”
Confiscated someone’s toothbrush for scrubbing the bathroom floor with it, then putting it back in their mouth
Watched someone chew up their food then barf it up on their plate……on purpose
Allowed someone to shine a flashlight on you while you shower
Returned to a store to pay for all the things found in someone’s pocket
Uttered the words, “Don’t touch your poop”
If you are planning a romantic dinner at home this Valentine’s Day then I’ve got the menu for you. This roasted chicken is one of my favorite meals on the planet. There are three, yep three heads of garlic in this recipe—it is not for wimps.
This garlic of garlicky-ist roasted chickens was developed by my dear friend Regan Cafiso when we were food editors over at CHOW and it remains one of my favorite dishes for lovers—as she would say, in a us against the world sort of way. Serve with a nice salad, some sort of chocolaty dessert, a stellar bottle of wine and watch the love flow. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!
