Today the east coast of the United States is caught in a nor’easter and Valentine’s Day may have to be celebrated at home as a result of the storm. It may not be as romantic as a cozy restaurant but making a nice dinner for your honey can still be romantic. Hopefully this dish will serve that purpose and that you were able to have the ingredients in your freezer as part of your pre-storm food run. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone.
