In honor of my Dad's birthday, we had his most favorite things for him -- scali bread with butter, shrimp cocktail, chicken marsala, cannolis from Roma's. We also gave him scratchies, dunkin donuts gift cards, capital grille gift cards, and steak/steak tips from the Boston Public Market I wrote about a few days ago. I think he loved his bday!!
Here's the shrimp cocktail appetizer.
And here's the chicken marsala cooking -- I made two dishes: one with mushrooms and one without. I also supplemented the marsala wine by adding a bit of pinot grigio, EVOO, butter, and a bit of chicken stock. Everyone loves the sauce, so you need to make sure you make enough!
Conor and Caden played outside with their Aunties, Daddy, and Grandparents until it was time for dinner. They were great and had so much fun on the hammock with everyone.
Cake for Conor with Daddy!
Auntie Lindsey is the best! We love her. :)
Being silly with Grampa and Auntie Chrissy.
I had such a good time last night. It was fun, relaxing, and everyone was in a good mood (specifically referring to C and C). Thanks everyone for coming and hope Dad and Mom had/have happy birthdays!
