Sunday dinner at the in-laws

Last night after much football was watched, we dined at my in-law's. I was responsible for a large Italian salad. It was a combination of romaine lettuce, celery, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, garbanzo beans and freshly grated parmesan. It was a hit!

**Insert my best Jersey Italian voice**
For the main event we had braciole, sausage and meatballs with gravy. This was served with an enormous bowl of macaroni (spaghetti) and a hard crusty bread. I skipped the sausage, but did eat a gigantic meatball and a little bit of the braciole (my first time). For those unfamiliar, it's flank steak, pounded thin, filled with some cheese mixture (moozarel and parm maybe), rolled and secured with twine, seared and then left to braise in the gravy. It was very good, but surprisingly, I was more enamoured with the meatballs and spaghetti last night.
**End my bad Jersey Italian voice**

For dessert there were Boston Cream Pies and sugar-free Pumpkin Pies. I chose the Boston Cream and it was a delightful end to a wonderful meal. I brought my camera along to photograph the delicious food, but in the end, I was way more interested in eating then in photographing and I completely forgot. I love eating a home cooked meal that I didn't cook! They sent us home with the untouched Boston Cream pie and enough pasta and meat to feed a small army. I give dining at my in-laws five stars ;)
