Growing up, my mother would make a feast of a brunch every Sunday after mass. Eggs were always on the menu, and more often than not, Italian Eggs were the main dish.
When Mama Cooks Dinner:
1. Cook the full meal
2. Set the table
3. Get everyone their drinks
Raising three children with healthy appetites can sometimes be challenging. Along with my husband and I, our dinners have to be,not just delicious, but available in a large quantity. So how do I manage? Well, I try to make 2-3 dinners a night when I’m cooking. One for that night, and two for freezing. And the things I freeze are not just one-night meals, they usually are big enough for two meals at least.
In my family, meat is BIG. That, and pasta. But sometimes, I’m all meat and pasta-ed out and I need something soothing and yummy. A couple of years ago I found a perfect recipe for butternut squash soup by Kathy Maister.
