When it’s time to make dinner, my family sticks to our strengths!
Mom= main meal
Her simple pasta sauce recipe: two 28-ounce cans of crushed tomatoes, 1 cup beef or chicken broth, 2 gloves garlic, 1 onion, a few basil leaves, and a teaspoon of sugar. Simmer for hours — with meat!Then, spoon and swirl with the most fun, fancy noodles you can find.Mary = salad.
I stuck to a pretty traditional Italian recipe like this one (parm instead of feta); and tossed in some roasted asparagus for extra flavor.Throw in a bottle of leftover wedding wine, and we’re ready to eat! (That’s me jumping into my seat)And lastly, boys = boozeAnthony and my dad perfected some homemade eggnog — recipe inspired by Jennie Burke’s notes at StyleBlueprint.We “lightened it up” (if that’s possible for eggnog) by reducing the sugar, using 1% milk, and half and half (instead of heavy cream). Topped with some fresh-ground nutmeg and cinnamon…And just to keep this blog slightly related to fitness over my food-filled holiday, here’s proof that I went to my first “Body Sculpt” class today:It was actually really fun!
