|Goat cheese, brie and Cotswold|
|My favorite green, meaty olives and tomato/mozzarella bruschetta|
|Coppa, mortadella and fennel salami from the Butcher Shop|
|Chicken Milanese, chicken Parm, salad with lemon/chive/mustard vinaigrette|
|Trenne pasta with san marzano tomato sauce|
I wanted to make sure that I could have all the food ready before everyone arrived since I didn't want to be in the kitchen and miss out on all the fun. I breaded and fried all the chicken ahead of time, plus I made homemade pasta sauce with a few cans of San Marzano tomatoes in the afternoon. Then all I had to do was cook the pasta and heat the chicken in the oven and dinner was ready! I had plenty of time with my family and friends and I have plenty of leftovers to archive in my freezer.
