The party that we had!

Yesterday, we had, after a very long time,  a family get together to celebrate my first pay! The initial plan was to go out and dine somewhere, but my sweet Aunts decided that it would require too much money to be spent, and instead it would be a better idea to enjoy a dinner at home.

The idea seemed perfect, since they have never enjoyed food cooked by me and they really wanted to try out food cooked by me. And  I was excited just as well, since it has been a while since I have cooked for a party! So overall it seemed like the perfect plan. It took me almost 5 hours to cook everything, but at the end of it, it was pretty good!

Now although I didn’t take any pictures of the event (and even if I had, I don’t think I would have shared them), let me just share the menu with you!

For starters we had, Homemade Phyllo Cups, which I got from this wonderful blog that I have been following nowadays, FifteenSpatulas.

After that, there was the Main Dish, whose recipe I got Leites Culinaria. Its called Baked Chicken with Cinnamon Butter, and the chicken turned out to be wonderfully juicy and delicious. Although I was worried about whether the taste of the cinnamon might prove to be too much, but no, it was a wonderful dish!

For the side dish, we had baked pasta, the recipe for which I got from this blog! Now my pasta didn’t look as good as it does in this picture, but it wasn’t bad either! Just a seasoning issue!

Besides this, there were baked potato with the chicken, and a salad of my own invention. The salad was made up of chickpeas, kidney beans, capsicum, onion and mixed together roasted cumin in olive oil.

And then came the most important thing, the Dessert! For dessert we had an awesome chocolate cake, which my dad really praised! And if my dad praised it, then it must be good! The cake was so easy to make, that it was ridiculous, and it came out so delicious. You can get the recipe from here.

But the best part of all was the wonderful family get together and everyone sitting together, and laughing and enjoying and cracking jokes and making fun of each other! It had been a while since we had done it, and it was worth it.
