Both my wife and my eldest son are doctors and both were on service last night.Easter dinner will be today and will consist of

Starters : smoked oysters, sardines in 4 different sauces, smoked clams, devilled eggs and Russian salad, hummus with an extra splash of toasted sesame oil

Entremets : a nice mixed salad with Feta. Vichysoisse.

Main course : boned, rolled loin of pork in a spicy crust, sitting on a bed of julienned carrots, parsnips, celery and celery-root.
Side : scalloped potatoes or polenta
Dessert : chocolate mousse cake or Budini
cheeses : Port Salut, Münster, Roquefort and Cambozola

I think we'll have a nice SAfrican Fleur du Cap Merlot, a Gewürtztraminer and a nice Zinfandel ( I am crazy about the new Italian variety thereof ) . Marsala with the dessert.

Yumm !

Have some black beans waiting to be cooked. I guess we'll have black beans, rice, tortillas, marinated baked chicken and some salad.

Welcome Andrew, to DC! By the sounds of your wonderful feast, I am sure going to enjoy seeing more of your posts! Do you stuff your pork loin or just roll it in the spices? I have various stuffings I use.

I have Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill cookbook and he has a recipe for Black Rice using the soaking water from black beans to cook the rice. Just thought I'd mention it in case you're interested in trying it.

This does sound interesting..I thought the soaking liquid is not used in cooking. Can I get the recipe..
thanks

I'm either having fajitas or Spanish Rice. Probably fajitas because I just can't decide what to serve with the rice and I'm out of chicken (except what's reserved for the fajitas) and I don't want to go to the store.
