Dinner at Tony + Melissa’s

Posted on

On Saturday night after working up QUITE an appetite thanks to the Deval Patrick and Obama rally we attended earlier that day, Ray and I went to dinner at Tony + Melissa’s house (wonderful friends with amazing boys – Anthony + Alex).  Melissa had prepared a feast for us!  First, we had crostini with different toppings – roasted vegetables, olive tapenade, and sun-dried tomatoes… oh my!  Then she brought out an incredible home-made bread — how a woman with two sons under 3 has the ability to make bread at home is BEYOND me, but believe me, she does it well!!  Next, we had spaghetti with a hearty meat sauce.  It wasn’t just any meat sauce either, it was made with buffalo and turkey sausage.  A very nice change of pace from regular ground beef.  Now, meat sauces can often be really heavy and fill you up fast, but this one was light and had lots of pureed veggies to keep it tasting fresh and bright, and to keep us feeling healthy.  Simply delish!  Last, she served up an apple pie.  No Pillsbury piecrust to be found here… the one she made was good enough to eat on it’s own.  (I actually told her she should use leftover dough to make cinnamon + sugar twists.)  Mmmm.  We were totally spoiled and left feeling really lucky to have friends so wonderful (and so good in the kitchen!).

Happy eating!

 

Hello world!

This is my first official post.  Wow, I’ve finally made it into the 21st century!  It feels great to have a place to talk about what I love most in this world – aside from my husband Ray and my wonderful family – food!!!

As you’ll all learn soon enough, there really isn’t any point in my day when I’m not thinking about food. Thinking about what I’m eating, what I’m reading about eating, what I will be eating later that day, or what I can plan to make to eat next weekend… it’s inescapable!  So this outlet will help me focus my food-loving energy in one place.  And with any luck, maybe my passion will speak to some of you out there who love food just as much as me!

Happy eating!
