Tonight was Matt and Kat's one year anniversary, and since they couldn't go out to dinner because of their new baby I cooked them dinner instead. Now, I have this weird rule for myself that I don't eat chicken parmigiana unless it's my grandmother's recipe. Well, today I made her recipe for chicken parmigiana and it turned out quite well. I also made brown sugar, thyme, and butter glazed carrots with baked pistacios, ricotta mashed potatoes, and (thanks to my best friend Elisha) pumpkin cheesecake brownies. I also tried to set the mood as well with some candles and light jazz :)
Here is the picture of the brownies:
At the end of dinner Virginia got a little fussy but I managed to get her back to sleep.
I love my little niece.
All in all it was a good day and tomorrow it's back to work! Until thursday....
