Chicken Parm Bites: Some wonderful little chicken meatballs with a surprise center: mozzarella! Bob says that this dish reminds him of his childhood when his mom used to make it.
Entree: Mushroom, Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Bread Pudding: Savory bread pudding? All I’ve known is sweet bread puddings but hey, we’ll give this a shot. The flavors were there but unfortunately, the texture was not. The bread pudding was too mushy for my palate so I ended up picking out the mushrooms, peppers and goat cheese. I think that it may have been undercooked so I’m not going to write off this recipe, but I will have to give it another shot.
Side Dish: Cauliflower and Broccoli Au Gratin: A simple, yet tasteful side dish to go along with the complicated flavors of the bread pudding.
Dessert: Chocolate Yogurt Snack Cakes: Really, it’s just a fancy way of saying chocolate cupcakes. These were very interesting, but in a good way. The yogurt adds a tang to the cupcake and it was rich and moist. A delicious end to this dinner.
