A Family Dinner

Oh, did we ever eat well over the weekend! I am hoping to get a recipe for Megan's cinnamon rolls, among other things: Buttermilk Syrup, Becky's Sourdough Pancakes with Orange Syrup, fabulous pasta sauces, vinaigrettes, etc.!

For Sunday night's dinner, three of us were tasked with making different pasta dishes. Maraley prepared Spinach Ravioli with Toasted Pine Nuts in a scrumptious Brown Butter Sauce. Diane made Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Chicken Alfredo Sauce. I made Creamy Baked Penne and Chicken with Artichokes, Tarragon and Lemon. (Eventually, I was even able to serve it...)

To accompany all this, Kathy made a gorgeous Garden Salad with a custom Vinaigrette. Becky and Gina made Artisan Bread loaves and Focaccia (from the same dough), and Erik and Ashlie served up an array of different Ice Creams.

It was so nice to hang out in the kitchen with wonderful women (and some men too!) and talk about methods and techniques and tips, and especially to see the Artisan Bread makers in action! I am inspired and satisfied. Thanks for a great weekend, Family!
