Check it out. It’s not breakfast this time.
Instead, I decided to go all out and make a dinner that was totally good wine worthy. It’s amazing how much time you have on your hands when the kids are away for a week.
When we went to Lina’s yesterday, I went a bit wild and bought some nummy deli meats, and cheeses, some basil, gnocci, and a loaf of crusty bread.
Tonight I decided to put some of that wholesome goodness to good use. I got out the last of the Smirnoff and made a vodka tomato cream sauce for the gnocci. And, then I sliced some chicken breasts and stuffed them with Brie and pesto (thanks Miss M for that great idea) and baked them until the pancetta that I wrapped them in was all crisp and the cheese was soft and bubbly. A few steamed broccoli tossed in some butter and truffle salt and a light green salad completed the meal.
I tell you, it was so good, I had to have TG remind me to take a picture before I ate it all.
And, now, I need to go knit a bit and do some serious digesting. Luckily, TG is taking care of the dishes tonight.
