DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom We know lots of chocolate, flowers and other gifts are purchased for Valentine’s Day, but did you know that this year, Americans will spend $19.7 billion on gifts? That’s the number the National Retail Federation has estimated and it’s a record.Forbes reports that spending for Valentine’ Day surpasses that spent for Super Bowl Sunday, which was $15 billion.Where are all these billions going?Here’s a look at an infograph, published by Forbes, showcasing how Americans spend their money for Valentine’s Day.“The average man will spend $133.61 on gifts this year compared to $62.14 for women. It’s a well known fact that Americans love their pets and people across the nation will spend an average of $26.24 on gifts for their four-legged friends,” reports Forbes.Despite the huge number the National Retail Federation expects people will spend on Valentine’s, one of the most popular Valentine’s gift is a greeting card.History.com says evidence of the use of Valentine’s cards can be seen as far back as the Middle Ages and the oldest known Valentine was written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.“Americans probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the ‘Mother of the Valentine,’ made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as ‘scrap.’ Today, according to the Greeting Card Association, an estimated 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are sent each year, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year,” reports history.com.

Parmigiano-Reggiano and Butternut Squash SoupWHAT YOU NEEDSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up 150g Parmigiano-Reggiano, with rind25g butter1 large onion, finely chopped1 medium butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks900ml hot vegetable stock150ml milksalt and freshly ground black pepper, to season4-6 slices French breadfresh parsley or thyme, chopped to garnishWHAT TO DOReserve the rind from the Parmigiano-Reggiano, cut into chunks, then finely grate the cheese.Melt butter in a large saucepan, gently fry onion for about three minutes, until softened, but not browned. Add butternut squash, vegetable stock and Parmigiano-Reggiano rind. Heat until mixture is just simmering, then turn heat to low and cook gently for about 20 minutes, partially covered, until vegetables are soft and tender.Remove rind from saucepan, transfer soup to blender or food processor and add most of the grated cheese, reserving about 25g (1oz) for garnishing. Blend soup for 15-20 seconds, until completely smooth. Return it to saucepan and add milk. Stir thoroughly and reheat until piping hot. Taste and adjust seasoning.Meanwhile, toast slices of French bread, sprinkle remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano on top and grill until melted. Ladle soup into warmed bowls, then top each portion with one piece of French toast. Sprinkle with fresh parsley or thyme and a little extra ground black pepper, then serve.Cook’s tip: You’ll need roughly 500g (1lb 2oz) of butternut squash when peeled and deseeded. If you have any left over, simply roast it until tender to serve as a vegetable with another meal. To store the soup, cool it quickly, then refrigerate for up to three days, or freeze for up to three months.

TagsBronxCommercial Real EstateDevelopmentDynamic Star Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink A rendering of Fordham Landing and Brad Zackson of Dynamic Star (Photos via Dynamic Star)Dynamic Star continues to snap up properties as it moves forward with a massive mixed-use project in the Bronx.Dynamic Star purchased a concrete plant site along the Major Deegan Expressway for $21 million, Crain’s reported. Galway Realty sold the property.The development firm intends to incorporate the new parcel into Fordham Landing, the $3.5 billion megaproject it’s planning in University Heights near the Harlem River.Fordham Landing could become one New York’s largest real estate project since Hudson Yards. As planned, the project would sit on a 30-acre site and could have 2,380 apartments, including 720 units of affordable housing, according to Crain’s. It would also include about 50,000 square feet of retail space, an 800,000-square-foot life sciences center, a hotel, waterfront bars and restaurants, and an e-sports center.But it will be some time before that ambitious plan comes to fruition: According to Dynamic Star’s Brad Zackson, the pandemic delayed the project’s timeline by about a year. Now, the development firm is hoping to reach an agreement with the city for the project’s conceptual design in the first half of the year. The project would also need City Council approval through the city’s land use review process, which the firm is hoping to get by 2023.[Crain’s] — Keith Larsen
