DINNER DIARY: WEEK 13
If anyone is wondering what the heck is happening on Wednesdays, I tell ya, after 12 years together, you have to remind yourselves to still date one another. "Date night" usually involves eating out or movies and ice cream.
As for the rest of the week, the dinner diary highlight of the week had to be Easter of course! In my family, the Easter feast begins and ends in pie. The starter is a smoked ham, sausage and egg pie and dessert was a ricotta and chocolate crostata. To ensure adequate resting time between the pies, we had lasagna, then roast lamb and potatoes (we like to cover both Italian and British tradition!), a wonderful cheese course then a pre-dessert of poached pears in wine. Chocolate? Oh yes, we ate that as well.
