With only a slight warm-up in the forecast ahead, we’re all going to be looking for other ways to warm our Valentine’s hearts this week. Whether you’re preparing a romantic meal, planning class parties, or satisfying a loved one’s sweet tooth, Heinen’s has lots of great ways to show your love.
Don’t we all need a little color in our lives this time of year? Bright, happy flowers are a surefire way to your Valentine’s heart. Heinen’s floral department manager Mary Zickler is hard at work building beautiful displays of pinks, reds and whites.
“We’re extending Valentine’s Day outside the sweetheart box, with lots of ways to appreciate friends and teachers,” Mary says. “And with prices from $4.99 to $21.99, we’ll have something for every budget.”
For the traditionalist, Heinen’s will have red roses aplenty at $21.99 per dozen. Or, to mix it up a little bit, try giving an ivy heart topiary, which seems to float over potted cyclamen. Mary gave one to a friend last year, and it’s reportedly still thriving – a perfect symbol of lasting love!
And be sure to check out their funky little kalanchoe plants–they found perfect homes in small magnetic vases. At $5.99, they make fun and different teacher gifts.
In floral, you’re just steps away from Heinen’s award-winning collection of over 300 artisan cheeses.
For Valentine’s Day, wine and cheese department manager Theresa Clark will feature two Cypress Grove cheeses: one, Midnight Moon, is a goat’s milk cheese with nutty and buttery notes up front, and a caramel finish. The other, Lamb Chopper, is a “pleasingly salty sheep’s milk cheese,” which tastes great melted with sauteed mushrooms and polenta–and also makes a mean grilled cheese.
Supreme brie will be on sale this week, a buttery and rich soft-ripened cheese.
For the perfect pairing? Theresa recommends we try the Mionetto Prosecco Brut ($12.99). The dry, fruity bubbles of this sparking wine cleanse your palate perfectly.
Is beer the way to charm your Valentine? Try Bell’s Smitten Golden Rye Ale, a citrusy yet earthy brew (even better: try it with some Lamb Chopper cheese). Or go for the Ophelia Hoppy Wheat, which balances fruity hops with wheat malt–minus the tragic ending.
Even if you’re in a hurry this Valentine’s Day, you can still pull together a delicious meal in no time……
We love you, Barrington. So much that we…Continue Reading
