wednesday dinner: homemade marinara

Last night, I made Giada's homemade marinara sauce.  It is so easy to make and I got to use my immersion blender for the first time which was really exciting!  Giada doesn't actually puree hers but some people in my family (my sister) have a major aversion to tomato chunks (which I love.)  I served the sauce on capellini with a simple caesar salad on the side and Dennis picked out garlic cheese breadsticks from Trader Joe's.  To set the mood, I picked out Italian chianti and turned on a little Dean Martin on the iPod.  What a great night!  Oh and Dennis made delicious truffle brownies...from a box (TJ's) but they were still amazing!

we made the table bigger so we can all sit together!
