Tilapia filets lightly sauteed (was going to use panko, but critters got to that) with butter, lemon, capers over linguini, some sauteed mushrooms and leeks, and a light salad.

Husband mentioned something about his harissa (in the freezer). Nope. Actually, I didn't say no, just that I'd do a different prep if he wanted harrissa, some couscous and stronger flavorings, not delicate lemon/butter and linguini. He agreed (the tilapia is IQF so we have many more filets and will do a North African meal with them later).

DW and I belong to a dinner club with a group of friends. People that know me know that I don't make dessert. It's just not my thing. Nevertheless, I was asked to bring dessert tonight, so I am bringing an Austrian version of chocolate cake, called a Sachertorte. It was kind of a PITA to make, with lots of egg whipping and about a pound and a half of chocolate. It looks okay, I think. Crossing my fingers that it tastes okay.

Yours looks nicer than the ones on the Hotel Sacher website!

Very nice!

Don't forget the whipped cream!

That's really beautiful Steve! I had this desert twice in Vienna and a single slice was frightfully expensive. I have to hand it to you, that was quite a challenge to tackle such a famous desert and I hope it will be appreciated.
Please let us know what else was included in the menu. I'd love to be a part of a group like that.

(Got the idea from the omelette thread in Eggs).

Don't feel much like cooking tonight (That never happens). So it's bbq baby back ribs with crispy oven baked potatoes...probably a salad.

Thanks, Kayelle! We've only been members of this particular group for a couple of months now, but enjoy it quite a bit. There are eight of us altogether, and most are very good cooks. They've set the dessert bar high on previous occasions, which, to a non-dessert maker like myself, makes me a little nervous.
