Magnetic North

Last week my parents celebrated an anniversary.  It's always fun – not only is it nice to commemorate the beginning of our nuclear family, but it is also an occasion to honor the two people who have so faithfully served as "magnetic north" on the compass that is my life.

In our little clan food is love.
And so we eat. Mangia!

Pork, garlic, rosemary, olive oil, lemon zest.

Ready, set... should have ironed the table cloth.

Black forest ham and Havarti crepes

The not-nearly as good as Noni's pork roast

Pecan sandwich cookies

The Menu:
Pimm's Cup cocktails
Classic deviled eggs*
Ham and cheese crepes**

Mixed greens with roasted beets and blue cheese*

Pork roast
White lasagna with mushrooms and proscuitto*
Sauted summer squash

Pecan cookies***

Recipes from *Good food to share; **Adapted from the Silver Spoon and *** The Sweet Life.


  1. Those crepes (and everything else really) need to be on the menu for Chi-town.
    As an aside, I don't think I've ever ironed a table cloth unless I was about to cut it up for a craft project ;-)

  2. Boy, I would love a seat at that table!! How awesome that you have such great parents. Happy Anniversary to them!
