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.
Sounds delicious! I’m planning a graduation party menu for Memorial Day weekend. Vegetarian and gluten-free. It’s going to be a challenge to find crowd-pleasing recipes!
Vegetarian alone is fine, gluten free can be a challenge but both together…wow. That is a challenge. Maybe some Indian chickpea recipes or Indian recipes in general, lots of vegetarian and they tend to use a lot of alternative flours that are gluten free..Good Luck!
I think my invitation got lost in the mail! LOL. Sounds like the perfect welcome home dinner.
Oh well, you are probably enjoying better weather where you are. Mother Nature doesn’t seem to realize that it’s May here.
Great homecoming meal….I know your daughter will be pleased. Love your blog layout here 🙂
Sounds like a great menu for a welcome back dinner!
This sounds like a fantastic family dinner- enjoy!
