Saturday night delights for dinner 4/29

being our last night here in Vegas, I don't know but think it'll be a roast beef of some sort in the crock. that way, if I can get out of meeting up with someone today and actually join my family on our boat, dinner will be ready by the time we arrive here tonight.

so what are you making/eating/having?

Brats, I think. HH had to get up early this morning and go watch a concrete pour at his jobsite, so his time of arriving home is uncertain. Brats can be done within a much more flexible cooking time than the cross rib roast I first took out to thaw.

Went and checked our Beef forum on a good way to do the roast, and after reading about Michelmarie's experience and Goodweed and ironchef's advice, I am going to wait and do that puppy for tomorrow's dinner instead.

Dinner is scratched. We went out for a late lunch of halibut & chips. It's our fave place to go for it. They bread the halibut in panko and the fries are potatoes that are cut into wedges with the skin on. I'm going to a show tonight! All alone...

we had guests including a French lady who cooks well, so I planned a real bistro meal

we began with 3 cheeses, a french soft, a spanish hard and an amercian blue with water crackers and sliced baguette rubbed with garlic. we also had olives (greek and french) and mussles steamed in wine and shallots w/ bacon, and wonderful spring radishes with butter and sea salt.

the salad was a mix of frisee chicory radichio and endive with a hot mustard bacon vinaigrette

the main was a grilled smoked whole chicken (cajun rub, garlic infused, mesquite smoked) juicey and tender with roasted asparagus with herbs de provence, and potato salad with a sour cream mayo fresh herb dressing

white wine with the cheese and fish, pinot noir red with the chicken. desert was berries and cream french roast coffee.

guests raved and had seconds etc.

I am happy cause it all worked and everyone was happy and satisfied. that is what it is all about.
