Food Feast

This last Saturday, we have friend over for dinner. We had been meaning to reciprocate the wonderful dinner they served us months ago. With time running short before we leave on our great adventure, it was one of those ‘now or never’ moments.

We have a full house with B & B guests, but we plunged forward anyway.

AntipastoTomato Onion Dip BreadFor appetizers, I experimented with some new recipes. First, I created antipasto skewers.

I also made a sweet onion and tomato hot dip, plus a bacon, ham, cheese, olive loaf.

For the main course, there was chicken Parmesan with zucchini boats. I forgot to take a picture of these, so I had to resort to web images.

Finally for dessert, I created baked cheesecake stuffed apples.

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
