Well, it has been a few months since my last event....during the holidays we invited a few friends over and my husband made pizza, I made chicken wings, and my son made a flourless chocolate cake. It was a party.
Everyone raved about the food, so I thought, why not do a crisp event featuring pizza.
We started out with the chicken wing course. I started to prepare these wings at about 2:00 pm that day. They take a long time to cook, and the longer you cook them, the tastier and tender they get. I also needed to get them out of the oven in time to heat up the oven for pizza. I did use my trusty gas outside grill to keep them warm.
Next, the salad--which was a traditional Italian-style salad with mixed greens, cucumbers, carrots, roasted red peppers, and cured black olives. The dressing, a simple oil and vinegar, that included salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried basil.
On to the main course. Three different pizzas: cheese, sausage and mushroom, and feta and spinach. I was told from one of the guests, that she didn't like spinach, but loved the pizza. In my opinion, spinach is a tuff veggie, done correctly I believe many folks who say they don't like spinach could change their minds.
Lastly, homemade ice-cream sundays....all homemade--the ice cream, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream. Topped with a fresh cherry and walnuts.
My guests graciously let me take their photos....it was a really great evening, see for yourself .
Thanks Jess A. for your support in my endeavor, and being a supporter by attending many of my dinners....much luck for you in Boston!
