All of my sons cook, and have done even as young boys that had to stand on a stool to reach the counters. Now that they are grown, it is fun when they decide to cut loose in mom’s kitchen to feed the family.
This past weekend my eldest decided he had a menu that he wanted to try, and he wanted to do everything from scratch.
He made three loves of bread, one an herb bread to be dipped in EVOO and pepper. The two French loaves became croutons and garlic bread.
\The croutons went on the Ceasar salad with homemade Ceasar dressing.
The main course was blackened chicken Fettucini Alfredo. He combined the herbs and spices to make his own rub for the chicken. The he made two types of pasta for the Fettucini, one regular, one spinach and mushroom. The Alfredo sauce was also from scratch.
Dessert was a fruit tart.
I didn’t get pictures of everything, once things were ready, I was too busy savoring the tastes to bother with pictures!
