The Dinner Party.
Tomorrow marks the day when my big, fat Italian family is coming to Maryland for the very first time all together! I had a crazy dream last night that they brought all the food down and I made nothing. Now, that’s kind of already the case -- Mom’s bringing the gravy for the pasta, and chicken cutlets, Mary Chip is bringing sausage and peppers, and Aunt Nonnie is bringing a salad! So, since this is supposed to be my dinner party, I have to use my expertise to make delicious appetizers and sides. Just a few things to really complete the whole dinner. I already know that I’m making a Caprese Salad with Lemon-Basil Vinaigrette, and a Prosciutto Wrapped Platter (grilled asparagus, cantaloupe, and fresh mozzarella - all wrapped in prosciutto), however, on the invitations, I also mentioned a “Stuffed Vegetable Platter” -- stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, stuffed tomatoes -- you name it, I can stuff it. The only problem is, I can’t decide on one great stuffed dish! So now I need your help. Please take the time to follow the link below, and let me know which appetizer sounds best to you! I may make all three, but I’ll let you know how it all turns out when it’s over! :)
