Green Mountain Recap

I love Vermont. It's always been one of my favorite states (the other is Maine). I took almost 1000 pictures this week but I'll leave you with just a few. Head over to my Flickr for more.

Alexis' Mom Cami made a delicious chicken pot pie in the largest cast iron skillet I've ever seen. Look at the size of Brett's head next to it for perspective. It took two of us to lift it into the oven.

It's actually a lot of fun to cook in mass quantity but we had no idea how to judge the proper amount. We made 8 boxes of rigatoni but ended up filling this pan with probably 5 or 6. We used the leftover tomato sauce and meatballs that Cami made for dinner earlier in the week, freshly grated mozzarella, whole milk ricotta, 2 eggs, fresh parsley and parmesan. The tomato sauce and crumbled up meatballs totally made it. Cami promised me the recipe and I'm very excited since I have yet to come up with meatballs that I'm totally happy with.
