Spring Menu

This past weekend we spent the day with my aunt and uncle and to cook a multi-course dinner complete with wine. We arrived in the morning and brought goodies for lunch, as well. The menu is below with a few interspersed pictures. Unfortunately, by the time the main dishes and dessert were cooked, we forgot to take pictures and the chicken dish looked absolutely gorgeous with my aunt’s serving dishes. Oh well. The food, wine, and company (including my parents and my grandmother) were fantastic.
