Giving tradition a try

A little daddy-daughter time

As anyone who knows me is aware...I'm not one for routine. My days flow as they go and I'm not one to sign up for too many scheduled commitments at once. I can go as far as preschool twice a week and swim lessons on fridays, but committing to hosting dinner every Sunday is a huge leap for me because I know people (my grandmother in particular) will be depending on me to follow through. Nevertheless, I did it and am pretty excited about it too.
Last Sunday was our second go at it, and I think it was a success. Although we ate at 8 o'clock (not ideal timing) our meal was so delicious and I loved having everyone together. Our table was set for seven and my in-laws accompanied us along with my grandma. The menu included whole organic roasted chickens stuffed with lemon and rosemary with a lemon sauce, mashed butternut squash and an organic salad with radishes, yellow bell pepper and goat cheese. It was the perfect first fall meal to start the season. The dessert was most certainly my fave though. My dad-in-law created the best apple pie I've ever tasted. He is an amazing cook who also makes tasty pies for the holidays and special occasions. Thanks so much for joining us and for leaving that pie, too. We finished every last crumb.
