Family luncheon

My father-in-law passed away in June. He was a dedicated resident of Oxford, Maryland and gave generously of his time and talent. The Oxford Community Center dedicated their miniature skipjack, Yankee Pedler to his memory on Saturday in a lovely ceremony. He had spent many hours on its restoration and upkeep so it was a fitting tribute.

Following the ceremony on Saturday, we had a family lunch. I turned to my favorite, The Barefoot Contessa for inspiration. In her Parties cookbook, I found a summer luncheon menu that I used in its entirety. The menu:

  • Panzanella salad
  • Shrimp salad
  • Pasta with pesto and peas
  • Chinese chicken salad
  • Lemon poundcake

It was a big hit and leftovers were incorporated into tonight’s dinner.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
