Whole Wheat Gnocchi, Tomato Sauce, Focaccia, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Dinner 2/4 by Brian

• Whole Wheat Gnocchi

• Tomato Sauce


• Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Brian made an amazing dinner from scratch tonight. Making gnocchi is no small feat. He baked potatoes, skinned them and mashed them with fresh-ground flour. After sculpting each one with a fork, he boiled them and served them with tomato sauce made with tomatoes we canned from our organic garden this summer.

He also make two kinds of focaccia — one with fried onions and the other with coarse sea salt and spices. If you'd like to try making some yourself, here is Brian's focaccia recipe. It's easy and delicious! The cookies were another creation based on the recipe from Simple Treats by Ellen Abraham.
