On Saturday night we had dd future in-laws up for supper along with dd and hubby to be. We do know them but haven't seen them in a long while, so it was good to catch up with them, and we talked a little about the wedding.
Now I don't know about you, but when inviting people over for supper I prefer to spend time with them, rather than spending all my time in the kitchen? So I try and make as simple as possible a meal, and Saturday nights meal was no exception.
We had chicken breast stuffed with ricotta and spinach, then wrapped with bacon. They are baked in a 375 oF oven for 45 minutes. I also made roasted baby fingerling potatoes, Caesar salad and garlic bread. For pudding we had wibbly wobbly pudding and with our cup of tea I made carrot cake cupcakes using this recipe.
I was able to prepare everything ahead of time and so I was able to spend more time with our guests. We have friends coming over in a couple of weeks time and I think I may recreate this recipe for them as well.
