Yes, We Have Some Tomatoes...and Basil Too!

My parents came to dinner Wednesday Evening. They were celebrating their 54th anniversary. I made Chicken Piccata, using Giada D's flawless, yummy Food Network recipe, served it over angel hair pasta, with extra sauce, and served this huge platter of tomato and basil salad, fresh-picked from the garden. I topped it off with Giada De Laurentiis Parmesan Garlic Vinaigrette which I found at Target. It's soooo good...great as a bread dipping sauce too! We finished it off with a serving of Ciao Bella. What a nice night!
Tip: always make extra sauce...it's so good!

Here is the Chicken Piccata Finished...sorry I loaded the pictures backwards!

  2. Giada is my favorite! Tonight, Seashell and I are making a few of her chinese recipes! Shrimp shu mei and vegetable chow mein.

  3. I am salivating over those tomatoes!! One of these days, I need to try to plant some heirloom tomatoes. I'm usually just too lazy to wait for seeds and get my little plants at Lowes or Home Depot. This year, our tomato crop is late since I planted late, but they are just starting to really come in. (Hubby & I love to watch Giada, too!)
