Another, You The Man

This just in from Wisconsin, Cindy, soon to be a world reknown photographer after her training at The Milwaukee Technical Institute, held her first-ever dinner party last night. Turns out it was a smashing success! Six hours of cooking, alone, for a picky group of eaters, who brought children (wisely, Cindy had Mac and cheese for the kids, she's more than just another pretty face). I didn't make my first dinner party for 10 people plus their kids. Nor the second. The following was the menu:

Soup: Butternut Squash Soup
Main: Chicken with Red Potatoes & Asparagus
Sides:Savory Bread Pudding (involves broccoli)
Sauteed zucchini, squash & onions
Penne in creamy garlic sauce
Dessert:Bumbleberry Delight (Angel food cake with a warm berry sauce)

Turned out that it was a smashing success. Cindy has some leftovers. You can read about how to get some at her site. In the meantime, Cindy, you also The Man.

Penii pasta. Stop it. I was just getting over this. A million kinds of pasta in the world and you choose penii.

The recipe called for penne, I used penne. Maybe I should have tried the curly-q kind..

For the record, I didn't even make the macaroni & cheese for the kids. They ate chicken, with some whipped cream for dessert.

penii is not pasta

A joke over my head. I've been entirely too literal lately.
