Sunday Brisket Dinner - October 5, 2008

Friends:

Today, I had my whole family over for Sunday dinner. I went all out, creating appetizers, main course, and dessert. I made the gorgeous centerpiece by carving the insides out of a pumpkin, filling it with water, and arranging autumn-colored flowers inside. I love how it came out. This was our Sunday Dinner menu:

Appetizers:
Lady Bug Pesto Pizzetas (Eliana’s Recipe, modified)
Stuffed Mushrooms
BBQ Chipotle Cheddar Turkey Meatballs
Roasted Garlic & Baked Brie Cheese with Crackers

Main Course:
Beef Brisket
Roasted Garlic Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Fresh Green Beans
Wilted Spinach & Sauteed Mushrooms
Garlic Polenta Patties
Fresh Pineapple

Dessert:
Berries N Banana Shortcake with Crema & Ghiradelli Chocolate Chips

Check out these appetizers. Mmmmmm!

It was fun having everyone over. My brother’s girlfriend, Aline, was such a sweetheart, helping me in the kitchen. My nieces and Eliana also helped clean up the kitchen. Now it looks like no one was here (until you open the fridge and see the leftovers!). Cook together, clean together, and spend time with your family!

Until next time…

Warmly, Dianne
