We cooked the meal tonight at my mom's house. Yum doesn't even describe! I loved the smells of the foods cooking. I loved the colorful dishes and the variety of foods. I loved the unique flavors and how it all worked so well together.
My first time ever making my own salad dressing and I learned it is SO easy to do!!! The asparagus turned out perfect. The potatoes were great. I enjoyed the goat cheese on the spinach salad. I really loved the cheese on the asparagus-potatoes when it melted a little. And a little cheese goes a long way!
The chicken marsala that my mom made was divine! The sauce was light and tasty. The chicken was perfect. We cooked some farfalle to go alongside it and I drizzled the sauce on it.
Amazed that the two of us could pull off such a fantastic meal! Neither one of us cook much but are wanting to be better at it and have some fun together this year trying out new recipes. Taking on a few new ones next month - can't wait!
