I just have to say my CATS loved the pineapple tart tatin.....I am NOT impressed....I'll have to dig out my water pistol. But still, there was effusive praise for it and they are purring ecstatically and licking their sticky toffee sauced faces....

They got a plate my mother put down when the phone rang, lol

Good evening everyone!

The first course tonight is sauteed goat cheese rilettes on a bed of boston lettuce with candied walnuts and balsamic viniagrette.

Main course is roast leg of lamb served with fryed yukon gold potatos, peas and mushrooms with dried cranberries, and mashed apples with a hint of rum.

Dessert is eggnog creme brulee.

Cocktail is bourbon - neat
and we have an Australian syrah for the lamb.

I hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

I started planning a menu for DH being home next weekend too, I am trying to think of lots of cook in advance stuff or minimal cook stuff that will wow but not take up too much of our four days. ....
that sounds magnificent! I never saw oriental black rice....what's it like?

I was too tired to make anything from scratch, so I bought a rotisserie chicken and made mashed potatoes, peas, and a salad. Raking leaves was exhausting!

I tried something new tonight that came out well enough for dear husband to say he'd definitely enjoy it again (always a plus - lol!!).

I blanched a big bunch of trimmed, roughly chopped broccoli raab & then sauteed it in some extra-virgin olive oil with 3 big cloves of chopped garlic, a few dashes of crushed red pepper flakes, some sliced Artichoke & Garlic Chicken Sausages, & a can of drained Garbanzo(ChickPeas) beans. I then tossed all of that in with a box of cooked Barilla Farfalle (bowtie) pasta, & topped each serving with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

It was absolutely delicious, & I have enough leftover for a couple of lunches :)

Last irrigation of the season tonight so it's french dip sandwiches with au jus, garlic fries,and baked apples stuffed with cream cheese,nuts, brown sugar and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. All this between, running from check to check to gauge the water flow, and peeking in on the 1st. game of the world series...

Yum. Your dinner sounds fabulous kadesma. We had lazy lasagna (thanks for the idea GB) and salad. The chocolate chip cake is going to be a later dessert. We will likely have ice cream and all the "fixin's" on top of the cake. Mmmmmm.

Thanks Alix,
