The Weekend in Food

We were in a bit of a culinary mood this weekend and made some tasty meals! Here's our fancy meals from this past weekend:

Saturday Lunch: Cheese Ravioli with Vodka Sauce, topped with fresh 
grated Parmesan and basil
 Fresh farmer's market ravioli paired with some simple sauce and toppings made for a quick and easy throw together lunch Saturday afternoon. Just for fun, we paired it with a glass of Carmenere red wine.

Sunday Brunch: Drop Biscuits with Fried Chicken and Chicken Gravy, 
topped with spicy basil and golden thyme
I had been looking forward to making Sunday brunch since last Wednesday when I saw this recipe on Serious Eats for drop biscuits with cheesy eggs. Their dish reminded me of a brunch I had recently at No. 246 in Decatur, so we decided to recreate that meal. It turned out absolutely perfect!

Sunday Dinner: Rotisserie Cornish Game Hen, Orange Thyme Pan Roasted 
Asparagus and Grilled Corn
After that hearty brunch, we skipped straight to a late dinner. We love using the rotisserie attachment for our grill and these Cornish Game Hens browned up nicely! We love the orange thyme asparagus from Cooks Illustrated and brushing some of the extra on the corn is delicious too!

All three meals were fantastic, but everyone's got a favorite, and this time we both agreed..... Sunday Brunch won the weekend food wars!
