I had a bunch of random things just laying around waiting to be put together into something fantastically yummy for dinner tonight–so I took advantage of them, of course!
After getting back to my parent’s house tonight, we all went out to dinner at the family favorite restaurant–the Terrace Diner in West Babylon.
This morning I’d settled on making rice pudding using arborio rice for lunch, but come the end of my morning class, I decided something more savory and lunch-like was a better idea.
For the main dish of my birthday party dinner, I put together a simple pasta dish with pieces of chicken and a light lemon sauce.
In keeping with the Italian theme of my party, I started off dinner with a nice pot of stracciatella soup.
Another appetizer I had at my birthday party this year was a simple bruschetta with tomatoes and fresh basil.
