A Meal Made With 100% Organic Love

So... tonight was the last night that my cousin and Dad are here in NY. Sad... but we definitely celebrated!

Last night, and before leaving for the Yankee game today, I prepared all the dishes so that when we got home, I would just have to stick it in the oven.

Item #1:
Spinach and Feta Meatloaf(Click for recipe from teamsugar.com)

The layering process was SO fun!

The rolling part was not...

But the final product was a success! (Note: I was too impatient to "let stand until firm up" so I cut it while it was still piping hot. I DO NOT recommend this as it was quite messy. After I let it sit for a while, the cuts were MUCH prettier!)

Item #2:
Potato Gratin
This is a dish that my mom makes all the time. She changes is up slightly with the kinda cheese she uses but basically its just thinly sliced potatoes, layered with milk and grated romano cheese, and the top is finished off with more romano cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Ohhhh.... good color!

Item #3:
Peas and Prosciutto (Click for recipe from Giada De Laurentiis)
First of all:

How beautiful are the colors?!
This was actually my favorite dish tonight. It was sweet from the peas and just salty enough from the proscuitto! The parsley did wonders also! Such a simple recipe (and quick!), but it was such a sophisticated side dish!

The table set up.
