My husband's birthday is on New Year's Eve and we usually have a party with 50 to 60 people. In 2020, as we all know, that couldn't happen.
So, I made dinner for only me and him, my parents, and my son and daughter-in-law. He wanted chicken cutlets, his favorite. Everyone else eats meat, I don't. See, why I don't eat meat.
I also made sides of green peas with sautéed red onions in butter and roasted potatoes and carrots. For the roasted vegetables, see recipe below.
Peel, wash and cube/slice your vegetables. Place them in a lightly greased baking pan.
In a separate bowl Mix your oil, melted butter, apple sauce, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend together well. Pour into vegetables and toss so everything is coated well.
Place into a preheated 425 degree oven. Roast approximately 25 minutes to one hour, depending on how much you are making. Just before removing from the oven, I broil for a few minutes.
My daughter-in-law surprised my husband with gluten free brownies for dessert. He was a happy camper!
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, safe New Year. May 2021 be better in every way.
I can't give amounts, I can only give ingredients. Most Italians don't cook with measurements, they cook with heart. My mom taught me to add ingredients until "it looks good". So, judge for yourself.
