a pre-Fall feast…

Today was a cooler day… almost preparing us for the arrival of fall this coming Saturday!
What better to do than prepare a comforting dish for dinner that would satiate both the stomach and palate.
Chicken sautéed in a mascarpone marsala cream sauce… chunks of chicken breast, diced onion, sliced mushrooms, garlic, marsala wine and mascarpone were some of the delightful supporting actors in this simple, yet satisfying meal!
The sauce was creamy and almost sweet, while the mushrooms offered an earthiness and the chicken, a wholesome and warming element!
Hmmmm… I think Fall meals are in full effect…

A night off!!

As much as I love whipping up something spectacular for dinner, sometimes I just love sitting back, ordering a few drinks and letting a chef in a kitchen [other than mine] wait on me! Tonight was just that…
For the appetizers… a fried calamari special tossed with dijon mustard and honey, cherry peppers and arugula. Also buffalo mozzarella served caprese with prosciutto, roasted peppers, fresh tomatoes and olives.
As the main course… homemade pasta with rendered bacon, mushrooms, onions, garlic and chicken in a light, but intoxicating cream sauce.
After all that deliciousness… no room for dessert!
