Joisey, good to see you back. Very Nice! The potato Leek Soup is right up my alley. Gotta make some Vichyssoise soon. The dessert looks fab. Can you share your recipe? TIA.

Thought I'd share a link for another wellington - not that you need to change a thing, but if you want to try something a little different. Always make me drool. (Thinking out loud, I may try this with chicken.)

thanks!!! I make special 4 course meals every Wednesday for my girlfriend... I'm a big fan of 4 course meals, I feel like it allows you to serve a nice combination of flavors in smaller portions and you feel full but not stuffed once it all gone. with the holidays and my birthday things have been busy so this week I made it on Sunday instead of Wednesday ... here are a few others ive posted since i joined the site:

- Wednesday Dinner(Chinese!) w/Slideshow

- http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...tos-39128.html

- Wednesday Dinner w/ Pictures (10/24)

- Dinner, Wednesday, 10-17-07.

- http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...tml#post522468

They all have photos and some have recipies.

thanks amy... yeah with the hollidays and stuff i havent been on the internet much. As far as the dessert i will post up a recipe later on for you once i dig it up again...

that recipe looks good, i was actually thinking of trying some individually sized chicken ones myself, as i had it at a pub recently and it was really good. it had a camembert cheese filling.

thanks... i posted the recipe here:
Beef Wellington Recipe


it has tips on cooking the meat/pastry evenly. you definetly want to sear the meat in a pan first, and bake at a pretty high temprature... if the pastry is golden brown before the meat is done you can cover it with aluminum foil and the pastry will pretty much stay at that color
