I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Jason and I couldn’t manage to get those dinner reservations so he surprised me with a very fancy take-out dinner from Grégoire. It was actually just as romantic as we sat on our couch in our pajamas, devouring our deep fried quails while watching The Hangover. But now that this holiday is out of the way, let’s talk potatoes.

Orzo is one of my favorite kind of pastas. It may be due to the fact that I grew up on Korean rice my entire childhood, so it’s really no surprise that I would love this pasta in rice-shaped form.
