This Sunday, we're having our good friends over for lunch. I'm totally looking forward to it! It took me a while to figure out what we were going to have, but I think I have finally made a choice. Just to make it a little more exciting, I'm going to let my guests read the menu and decide what they would like to have as an appetizer and as the main course. I'm curious to know which they'll prefer.
Are you anxious to know what we're gonna have? Okay okay, I'll tell you:
Home made blini with smoked salmon, a dollop of sour cream, red salmon roe and a sprig of dill, on a bed of cress, accompanied by a glass of Cava or Cassis with pomegranate seeds
Raisin bread toast with foie gras, on a bed of watercress, home made onion confit on fresh figs, accompanied by a glass of red Port or a glass of sweet Monbazillac
Creamy soup of Belgian endives
Grilled beef tenderloin with gorgonzola or pepper sauce, a jacket potato with garnishment and a winter vegetable casserole
Home made tagliatelli with scallops, shrimp, leeks and diced carrots in a creamy chive sauce, topped with samphire
(home made personalized bread rolls)
Home made Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Ice Cream, home made brownies and chocolate mousse, strawberry topping
Do you think our guests will have a good time? I know I will! Can't wait to dress the table and pick out the wine. Two more nights to go before they're here! I'll turn on the Christmas lights.
