The salad was actually the first thing decided upon in this menu. The rest came together hodge-podge style.
Buttered Egg Noodles
Roasted Carrots and Parsnips
Cauliflower Green Olive Salad
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies
10 gathered for dinner this week (6 adults; 4 kids).
The meatball recipe comes from the January 2009 issue of Cook’s Illustrated magazine. We made a double batch and had maybe a third left over. Two bags of noodles were 95% eaten though.
The salad was from a Moosewood cookbook; it came out quite well. Garlicky, crunchy and colorful. Ted suggested that the cauliflower was a bit raw for him so maybe an extra minute or two of cooking in the future.
JG doesn’t like peanut butter; who knew.
