Sick Valentine's Day

I am officially sick.  I woke up last night around 2am and couldn't fall asleep for over an hour because I couldn't breathe out of my nose.  I'm one of those people that require only two things to sleep: Be able to breathe out of both nostrils and be cold so I can curl up in my blanket.  Along with the stuffed nose came hot/cold flashes.  I still got my butt up at 5:45 and headed to work.  Not the best day but I made it through.

When I walked in the door I was pleasantly surpised by 2 things:

I had a box of organic produce delivered to my house today with a LivingSocial coupon I got a few weeks back.  In the box we got some fuji apples, bananas, carrots, potatoes, pears, kiwis, purple lettuce and rainbow chard.  Normally the box would have cost $25 but I got it for $12.
Only one question....what should I make with this???
Anyone know what to do with rainbow chard?? Thinking about adding it to a soup.

My second surprise when I got home:
He knows me well: roses, chocolates, chocolate covered strawberries, runners world and a card.
These are obviously almost finished.

After oogling all my goodies I headed out for a short run to try to rid myself of this cold. I only ran 2 miles because I was not feeling so hot.  But I'm glad I tried.  Then it was time to start dinner. I wanted to make something I know Matt would like.  He loves comfort food so I searched pinterest and found the perfect recipe.  Healthy Chicken and Cornbread Casserole
I pretty much followed the recipe except I used olive oil instead of butter and I used whole wheat pastry flour for the cornbread to add some more whole grain.
We will have lots of leftovers!

Any tips for the rainbow chard??

How was your vday?
