Dinner Date

17 Feb

Last night Emily and I went to the first night of “What’s for Dinner,” a six-week continuing education class designed to expand the average home cook’s repertoire. At the beginning of the night, the twelve students there went over what we were going to cook:

  • Mixed greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette
  • Milanese-style minestrone
  • Soft polenta with fontina and fresh thyme
  • Pan seared, honey glazed pork loin
  • Raspberry oatmeal bars

The class and materials fees came to a little over $100. Not a bad deal for about a week’s worth of full dinner recipe ideas and social exchange.

    I find this highly amusing. I expect that next time I come for a stayover you will have full meals prepared for me.

    You bet! We’ll make you a four course meal:
    Cap’n Crunch
    Toast (now with butter!)
    Milk
    Sunny D

    Part of this complete breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    We did recently get the pasta making attachment for our mixer. I’ve made spinach spaghetti, and we’re going to have a big ravioli cookoff next weekend.
