My daughter has been home from Europe about a week, but it has been so hectic with other things going on that we haven’t really had a big “Welcome Back” style family dinner, so I’m thinking tomorrow will be it. Certain foods have always meant home and family as far as I am concerned. Tomorrow will be some of her favorites:
- Ginger Glazed Ham (Cooked out on the grill, kinda, sorta adaptation of one of Nigella’s early recipes. )
- Macaroni and Cheese
- Roasted Vegetables in Olive Oil with Sea Salt and Fresh Cracked Pepper (bought some pink sea salt to try for this)
- Cornbread (Chef Spike’s recipe, a family favorite)
- Chopped Salad
- Dessert , hmmmm maybe Sticky Treacle Pudding or Creme Fraiche with Berries drizzled with some honey
Along with the food, we have several bottles of wine and some beer so it should be a good time.
