We are back with the 3rd night of the Int’l Family Meal Challenge.
Our middle guy went simple and served up classic Italian:
- Jalapeno Cheddar Bread from Sprouts (not an Italian classic, ha! but a favorite of his so that’s what matters most in this meal challenge.)
- Spaghetti and Meatballs (homemade meatballs and sauce minus the veal). Did you know one of the tricks to delicious pasta is heavily salting the pasta water – not a pinch size, but a 1/4 cup of kosher salt for a large stockpot; and not to rinse it after cooking it. Makes all the difference in the world.
- Raspberry Fool Parfait– we had never heard of this dessert. The combination of the lightly sweetened ricotta, subtle hint of orange and organic raspberries was a delicious surprise! (his tweaked recipe below).
Besides watching the kids in the kitchen during this quarantine time, another fun teary favorite has been looking back through pictures. Still not believing this guy will be a senior this Fall.
Thanks to this adorable and fun loving guy for the time and attention he put into making this wonderful meal!
