The Hungry Man Dinner

Several years ago, the Level Headed One and her Hungry Man husband invited Michael and I to dinner at a small BYOB restaurant.  With wine tucked into my handbag, we trucked through a crowded patio and met our newer friends for what would be an evening of great food and easy conversation. On that evening, we forged a tradition that has endured the pressures of life, the schedules of parenthood, and most importantly the peaks and valleys of friendships.  Over seafood or Italian cuisine, red wine or margaritas, the four of us have said it all and eaten it all.    This week, they will grace our dinner table once more for a fresh take on the Hungry Man's Dinner.  Our menu: 

Fresh Bread with Roasted Garlic
Grilled Ratatouille Salad
Mustard Roasted Potatoes
Grilled Steaks
Apple and Raspberry Crumble

After a nice break to enjoy the summer sun, I'm excited to fill the house once more.  I may even celebrate with a glass of wine!

  1. I can't wait, you might have to start this over next year. But twist it up a bit--do it twice a week.
