Take one insanely busy Monday.
Add a heart-shaped pot someone gave you when you got married. Dust it off, as it hasn't been out of the cabinet for several years. Ponder how a lasagna is going to fit in there.
Spend 5 minutes sitting on the kitchen floor reminiscing about planning the wedding, when registering for things like pots and pans seemed like such a big deal.
Get sucked into the day.
Suddenly realize it is 4:00 and you are not sure you have ricotta cheese. Or, for that matter, lasagna noodles.
Add a dash of guilt: Isn't this how you were planning to show your family how much you care about them? A lasagna! Shaped like a HEART! Does it get any more meaningful than that?
Decide that a red, heart-shaped pot filled with tricolor pasta and sauce is plenty significant and it really is the thought that counts. Really.
Smile when family is impressed.
