2. adventurous, but tried: Lately I've been absolutely in love with my caramelized sweet onion tart. To me, it's something unexpected, delicious, and different. Makes for a good conversation starter and a yummy side dish. I cut up some smoked gouda to serve alongside it.
We had such a great visit and thoroughly enjoyed our time together. The meal came together seemlessly and I wasn't cooking the whole time they were here. By making the meatloaf up ahead, I was able to just toss it in the oven about an hour before dinner time. I baked the tart in the morning while Annalyn was still asleep and popped it back in the oven for a few minutes to warm up right before serving. The cobbler cooked on low for about 3 hours, so the slow cooker did all hard work for me. I used pre-cut/pre-washed kale (pretty cool, right?) and chopped all the other veggies ahead so the last thing I made was the kale salad while Michael got everyone's drink order. Timing is key, my friends!
Remember, a happy, stress-free cook = happy dinner party
