We have yet to set one up, but to me girls’ night in involves some cocktails a few appetizers and chocolate of some sort. Kicking back with our feet up, the children elsewhere, and a non-family related activity: a movie, an art project, music, shopping from home, a book, or just a good chat. Cooking doesn’t usually come to mind because, although I love to cook, it is also usually a family chore. There is something different about cooking with friends though.
Slow Food Boston has their final pasta class this Wednesday, December 10th at 6:00 pm. The class is filling up quickly so if you are interested, I would register now. It is all about Tortellini. Apparently, stuffed pasta, especially this one is for the brave at heart and nimble of hand. The class is held at Dave’s Fresh Pasta. 81 Holland St in Davis Square, Somerville.
If you can’t make the class, then head over to Capone Foods and get some OO pasta flour. Do some surfing on the food channels on TV or online and make your own straight pasta: linguine, fettuccine, etc.
If you can’t make the pasta, buy it ready made, and grab a sauce from the freezer. Get some local hydroponic lettuce from Whole Foods, some garlic, some of Kate’s butter from Maine or Highlawn Farmbutter from Lee, MA. Get together, make some dinner: pasta with sauce, salad and garlic bread. Kick your feet up and enjoy the company of friends.
Bon appetit. ttyl your BFF (Boston Family Foodie)
