Tomorrow is Sunday Cafe, and a word of thanks.

We are celebrating the March birthdays and saying good-bye to a family member that will be moving to another part of the state, tomorrow will be a busy dinner. I have begun to plan meals with more vegetables, in different forms that will (hopefully) appeal to all. We shall see!

Here is my proposed dinner menu:

Flank Steak Pinwheels, these were a simple assembly of butterflied flank steak, stuffed with thin sliced ham, spinach, dried tomatoes and provolone cheese. I will serve these atop a bed spinach and sauteed mushrooms.

Polpettone alla Toscana (it's not your mother's meatloaf!)

Salad platter, (make your own creation) I am hoping this will encourage more salad eating.
Lemon Mustard Salad dressing
Creamy Blue Cheese dressing

Roasted sweet potatoes

Buttered Corn (as you have noticed, this one if for Honey)

Lemon Parmesan roasted Cauliflower

Cream Cheese and Toasted Pecan Banana Bread

Gingerbread Pudding Cake, I love this dessert! I have a couple of apples that are a bit past prime, I will roast them a bit in the oven before I pour the batter over the top,
