I am constantly inviting myself over to my friend’s Jayden & Marco Godina’s house for dinner so I thought this would be the perfect first stop for “Friendly Food”.
I walked into a kitchen prepped with the ingredients in little bowls, it felt so official, the only thing missing was the camera crew! We quickly got down to business, they entrusted me with a knife and I was soon sous “cheffing” my way through the meal. I chopped eggplant, cauliflower and basil before hopping over to the food processor and “ricing” the cauliflower into small bits for the bread sticks. I was only asked once to hand the knife over for a knifing tutorial.
The meal was wonderful, quite easy and something that I would definitely make again, you can find the recipes at the bottom of this post.
This was the perfect launch of “Friendly Food”, I spent quality time with two great friends, learned new skills and some new recipes. I didn’t win at the game of Life but I certainly feel with nights like this that I am winning at Life.
A huge thank you Jayden & Marco! XOXO
Eggplant slices, salted to remove moisture and wiped clean, ready to bake in the oven.
Friendly lessons. Marco instructing me on what 3/4″ really looks like.
Patting the cauliflower mixture into the pan to bake, apparently this is funny.
What is Friendly Food?
“Friendly Food” is a blog feature; combining social hour with hands on learning that culminates into a well crafted meal, an expanding recipe collection and ever growing knife skills.
I am inviting myself over for dinner at friend’s houses (or at least heavily hinting until they invite me), asking them to pull out their favorite healthy recipe and playing the role of sous chef.
