Do ya'll remember that song? I know I am SO dating myself (lol) but I always loved that song.
What a fun food-filled day with my handsome husband Chris and his family! It's always so good for the ego to serve family - I mean....really....what are they going to say? "Wow, this could give ALPO a run for its money?" I say this in fun because my family are followers ....wait, maybe they're just followers because they want me to cook for them again! (lol)
Lunch was sandwiches. Now by sandwiches I do not mean slap some bologna on some white bread with store brand mayo. No ma'am. By sandwiches I mean homemade bread with homemade guacamole and smoked turkey salad speared with organic grape tomatoes. Fresh fruit salad dusted with brown sugar hung out with the sandwiches.
( pics tomorrow)
Pre-dinner appetizer - a feta cheese ball with carrots & snap peas. (feta, cream cheese, NY super sharp cheddar, pepper, garlic powder, scallions & Weber's chicken grill seasoning. No, I did not use a grill to make the cheese ball - I just "pushed the parsley!" Hmmmm - maybe I could invent "the grilled cheese ball." I mean, there's grilled cheese, right? Hmmmm - I'm envisioning the fire department pulling up at our Bed & Breakfast. "Ma'am....we're here to put out the cheese ball."
Dinner - organic spinach ribbons & extra wide egg noodles topped with basil brown gravy chicken & smoked mozzarella. Hearts of Romaine dressed tossed with olive oil, garlic wine vinegar, salt, pepper & garlic powder hung out with the entree tonight. Oh, also basil & pepper bread twists. Sadly, I just realized I did not take a picture of dinner. No worries - I'll make it again!
We're supposed to get up to 3" of snow tomorrow (ROCK & ROLL BAYBEEE!!) so I'm going to be snuggled in with Chris and our "kids" - Molly, Noel, Dasher, Ping, Pong & Matilda - and I'll become a cooking fool!
It's a perfect time to experiment with "new" foods - we are in low season right now for our Bed & Breakfast and it's really the best time to (a) blow a stove up, (b) infuse the house with the smell of seafood gumbo or (c) burn batch after batch of blueberry muffins until I get them JUST right. Me and blueberry muffins - we need to get in a boxing ring.
On that note - good night all! 'Till Tomorrow!
Always "Push The Parsley!"
