Father’s Day

So, apparently I only post when I am not working regularly.  But anyway, we had a great celebratory meal for Father’s Day/my mother’s birthday.

We had grilled lamb,

Grilled vegetables,

A special salad, which came from this recipe, but we made it with lime juice and home-grown lettuce instead of the more flavorful arugula, because that is what we had.

And it all came together with a (slightly burnt) specialty of mine: grilled garlic bread.

Dessert was rather fancy looking, even if it was very simple.

Miniature strawberry shortcakes and coffee.

And, naturally, here is your gratuitous close up.

Dinner in Courses

On Thursday, we put together a special dinner for my mother’s birthday.

The primo was Campanelle al Limone, which turned out to be really easy to make.

For the main course, I made Pollo al Vino Bianco and some fried vegetables.

For dessert, my sister made Strawberry Shortcake, the real way. It was delicious.

Here is a better picture of a pretty cappuccino.
