Mushy heart

We didn't do much for Valentine's Day, having kind of shot our collective wad at the Good News Cafe the previous Saturday, but I wanted the evening to be at least a little bit different from the normal dinner-wash dishes-Olympics routine that we have fallen into of late. So I bought some little coeurs a la creme molds in Northampton and planned to make them Monday night and serve them Tuesday night with some plum-lavender sauce, letting them set up and drain out their whey for nearly 24 hours before attempting to unmold them.

Here is what each coeur is supposed to look like:

Sad. But the sweet cheese mush was still pretty delicious, if slightly gross looking. And we'd had about half a bottle of Anderson Valley "Champagne" each by that point, so it was all okay. Champagne always makes everything okay.
