What's for Dinner, Saturday, 18 October

Brrrrr, it's officially chilly today. Definitely a day to keep the oven on, warming the house.

Cocktail hour this evening is Knob Creek bourbon with a drop of water.

First course is shrimp with sage butter in puff pastry.

Dinner is lobster medallions and mushrooms over angle hair pasta with a light spicy tomato wine sauce. I'll use the last of the tomatoes from the garden, just chopped and tossed with butter, garlic, white wine and one hot pepper.

I'm making italian bread later. The biga is out of the fridge, warming to room temperature.

I'm also making a pineapple upside down pumpkin gingerbread cake for dessert.

The vintner is watching Band of Brothers so I'm not sure what the wine is for the evening.

Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

And your dinner sounds wonderful! We are heading out with the new in-laws for dinner tonight. Promised them a nice steak before they head back to England on Wednesday.
