Yay, finally I am being taken out for dinner!!!!!!!!!

DH's work is finally getting around to their staff Christmas dinner tonight at a nearby restaurant. Don't know what I will have, but it is sure nice that I can order from a menu instead of doing the cooking!

By the way, I did not mix up Christmas with Easter.... it IS their Christmas dinner...for 2007.

As a kid, we celebrated St. Joseph's day with a traditional sicillian meal. Never cared for it much as a kid, but now, I look forward to making it every year. Since St. Joseph's day, (the 19th of March) falls on a weekday, and since I never cook at home during the week, we're having the dinner tonight.


First course - stuffed baby zucchini

Second - pasta con finocchio e sarde (pasta with fennel and sardines). This is the dish we always ate on the 19th. The fennel and sardines are sauteed with raisins and pignoli nuts with a bit of chopped tomato and wine. The pasta has to be pericatelli shaped. It's like a spaghetti, only thicker, and hollow. Then, the entire plate is topped with toasted, seasoned breadcrumbs. It's magnificent.

Third - Pan seared pompano with mushrooms and parsley butter.

Dessert is traditional St. Joseph zeppoles and sphinge.

Mmm mmmm....

I believe we're beginning with 1792 Bourbon, and we have a wine from the Puglia region of Italy for dinner.
