The weather last Thursday called for snow beginning in the afternoon. My husband suggested a soup and sandwich night for supper, paninis to be specific. I checked the Williams-Sonoma and Epicurious web pages for inspiration and I came up with my own recipe that I think is rather good. I needed boneless chicken breasts, fresh mozzarella, pesto sauce, roasted peppers and a sturdy bread.
The first month of 2019 is already in the book. Following the holidays, my husband was sick with the flu for a few days, feeling bad enough to stay home from work. During that time, he didn’t have much of an appetite and following this, we lost my aunt. As my mother used to say, “Life goes on.” So, on the day we buried my aunt I celebrated my birthday.
Following my aunt’s funeral, my children and their spouses and my brother and his wife went to lunch at Ristorate Da Benito in Union, NJ. A friend of my son-in-law’s recommended this restaurant. We arrived at approximately 1 PM and it was bustling with customers. The wait staff was attentive without being overly intrusive. Occasionally the chef would come out from the kitchen to check out the dining room and talk to the regulars.
