Kelly asked what we did with the case of chicken that I struggled to purchase last week.
Some of it was marinated and frozen for quick meals of grilled chicken. But the majority was turned into chicken marsala, added to a plateful of garlic smashed potatoes and roasted green beans, and served at a sweetheart dinner last Saturday.
I've wanted to host a sweetheart dinner for the couples at our church. With our home addition, we now have the space.
I knew the task was too big for just Ed and I. We asked another couple to join us in hosting the meal and they graciously agreed. Regina is one of those who can make food look too good to eat. Our husbands both are comfortable in the kitchen and we joke about starting Gina and Gina's Catering.
Besides our chicken entree, we served salad, bread (of course) with dipping oil, Russian creme and two kinds of cake.
My brother and sister provided us with violin music with our dinner.
A crackling fire was the perfect accompaniment. My feet were weary by the end of the evening but a project tackled with my sweetheart and joined with good friends is time well spent.
