An Italian twist Bday dinner


Happy Monday,
When your son turns a year older and requests a feast (with an Italian flavor) consider it done!
First like any good Italian household we have lots of little foods with big Italian flavors!
16 for dinner, no problem…. Well have enough food to feed you twice! (at least)
Homemade everything by the way (except the slider buns)
Italian pizza from nonna to start along with some spot prawns (in season in BC right now)
Moving on to a beautiful bowl of Penne with my wife’s heartwarming delectable sugo (sauce)

Next a big spread with Italian roasted chicken:
Recipe:
1 whole chicken (x 3 for our spread) cut in to sections.
Virgin olive oil (the work horse kind that all can cool with)
A pinch of fresh ground pepper on both and Murray river pink salt.
A pinch of Italian seasoning and herbs (I make my own, maybe I’ll share one day 😉 ) (quanto Basta -as much as you feel)
Fresh garlic and red onion
Lemon rind all over
Fresh lemon juice all over
350 convection oven for approx 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.

Add to the menu fresh stuffed mini sliders (recipe to come later this week)
A true pleaser for young and young at heart alike! Done on the BBQ is a true delight! It will make your neighbors peek over the fence!

No feast is complete without some great Cesar salad and fresh Roma tomato and onion and finished with corn.

Dare I almost forgot but I can’t miss my wife’s wonderful and always sought after croquet potatoes or baseballs as I call them!
