Friday Night Dinner

February 22, 2011

I’ve talked before about how crazy our work schedules are right now. So I’ve been trying to make the weekend evenings extra special so we can reconnect and enjoy each other’s company and not get caught up in the stress of being apart so often. I have also resolved to try a new recipe each week. These goals collided in a very wonderful way friday night. I made Fondue, Basil-Walnut Pesto over Pasta, and Strawberry Bellinis. We ate slowly while talking and listening to Florence and the Machine. The only word I can use to describe the evening is “lovely”.

My new recipe was Bellinis from Giada’s Family Dinners Cookbook. They were SO good. The perfect way to unwind from a long week.

I used my new, fabulous food chopper to puree the strawberries to perfection. The organic sparkling wine was from Trader Joe’s for only $5. I LOVE Trader Joe’s!

The meal was fantastic. We will certainly be having this again.

Currently reading: My Life in France by Julia Child

(I’ve started and stopped this book several times but this time I will finish!)

    I heard that Julia Child’s book is really good. And the dinner really came out very nice. Great post.
