Family Meals

One of the best things about having family in town is eating our meals at the table – together! It’s a rarity these days, but for some reason Mili-Mali has cooperated and let us eat in peace. Three nights in a row as we were finishing up the meal she would be getting restless in her little chair – perfect timing.

When I say the whole family, I really mean the whole family – including the Sous Chef. She sits on the ottoman as it makes her feel closer to us…closer to where the action is – or should I say where food is:)
My poor little Sous-Chef is going through a really rough times right now and I really need her to pull through it. About 12 weeks ago we found out she has melanoma on her paw and she went through a 6 week long radiation treatment and everything looking good, last thursday we got an alarming news. Tomorrow we go back to the oncologist to find out more and I am on pins and needles. I am not ready for any bad news…. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers…. 
Breakfast or really brunch since we didn’t eat till 11:30 were pancakes with peanut butter, banana, blueberries and strawberries – delicious!!!

 Dinner was one of my favorite Robin Miller recipes – cashew chicken and jasmine rice – so yummy….
 And a little kitchen sink salad – baby spinach, green, red, yellow and orange peppers, scallions and carrots with olive oil and vinegar – simple and satisfying. I’ve been craving veggies lately so this little salad was perfect.

And all together with a glass of wine. I had a glass of Tenuta Ca’Bolani Sauvignon Blanc – crispy, sharp and refreshing – a perfect glass of summer white – you should try it…

Do you eat all your meals with the family at the kitchen table or do you eat in front of the TV? We are very much the kitchen table kind, but with the TV on.
