Sunday Saturday Dinner

I'm not feeling particularly chatty today, so I thought I'd just throw out a "photo essay" on the dinner we made this weekend for our friends who were up visiting: This is the "Pan fried Pumpkin Gnocchi" from Steamy Kitchen... though we used butternut squash instead of pumpkin. My cute tining did not hold up to pan frying, as you might expect... which is probably why she didn't bother with it... but Anna was doing all the work and I needed to feel useful.


Anna approaches relativistic speeds as she finishes a roasted beet, goat cheese, and candied walnut salad.


Just your basic green beans with lemon and toasted bread crumbs, along with the pan fried gnocchi in the background... the sauce for which nearly set our apartment on fire, for no reason we could figure out... the vinegar just combusted. A little more excitement than we had in mind for the evening.


Finished off with my favorite dessert in the world... tiramisu.
