Saturday dinner 24 January

As Mardi Gras approaches I've got the Quarter on my mind. Well, actually I always have the Quarter on my mind, but I'm cooking like I'm in the Quarter tonight.

First course is New Orleans Barbecued shrimp. I have embarrassingly large shrimp for this,too!

Second course is flank steak stuffed with creole cornbread stuffing, maques choux, and yukon gold mashed potatoes with crabmeat.

Blueberry tarts and bignets for dessert.

Lou is making Sazeracs for cocktail hour and I believe we're having a zinfendel with dinner.

We're having friends over for dinner and then we're going to a play. I'm making dinner based on the Inaugural Luncheon menu: roasted duck breast with sour cherry chutney, roasted vegetables (asparagus, carrots and wax beans - they steamed the veggies, but I like roasted better), and twice-stuffed potatoes (they served mashed sweet potatoes, but DH doesn't like them).

We've got friends coming over so I'm making big batches of Indian food: Gobi Parathas & Chapatis, Koftas, Pakoras and a mild coconut curry with red potatos, carrots and green beans. It should be purty.

Barbecue spareribs, and something on the side, but does it really matter what's on the side because I'm having barbecue spareribs...
