Wasabi Seared Tuna and Seaweed Salad – Buy the best tuna you can find (preferably fresh) and serve with a seaweed salad.
Chicken and Sauce with Penne Pasta & Nina’s Famous Garlic Bread – This is my husband’s go-to meal for all occasions. It’s a meal his Mom (The kids called her Nina and it stuck as her nickname) made when he was a kid. It’s a super easy meal and can be made in giant batches to serve a crowd. Make enough for leftovers, the chicken makes great sandwiches the next day.
