The girls have a hand-me-down easel/chalkboard that lives outside most of the summer. Last year, I started writing the evening's menu on it before Bryan got home. It was fun to make dinner sound as fancy as I could. Most evenings, it didn't require much gussying up since we were exploring so many new vegetables. This spring, we have cheerfully renewed the habit. It makes family dinner just that much more special and (I hope) is a welcoming tradition for my hard-working husband. One night this week (when we had friends over), it said...
Garlic Scape Pesto with Pitas
Potato Kale Soup
Homemade Ten-Grain Bread
Tonight, (if I had written on it) it would have read...
Gnocchi with Swiss Chard, Spring Onions and Garlic Scapes
Last night it just said...
Movie and Ice Cream
If you had to choose, which special would you order?
