Planning a special dinner for two and have Amaretto Stuffed Cornish Hens as the main attraction. Don't want to do the same old sides, but don't want the menu to be too overpowering/too much. Help with narrowing it down & any ideas/input on the menu would be appreciated. TIA
So far some ideas to go with the Amaretto Stuffed Hens...
Butternut squash risotto (tired of the same old rice dish)
Or - Garlicky Potato Mushroom Gratin (too heavy?)
Garlicky potato & mushroom gratin
Green beans almondine
Appys for consideration
Garlic Prawn Asparagus Tartlets
Garlic prawn & asparagus tartlets
Melted Brie with Fruit
Melted Brie with Winter Fruit
Salad - spinach, red onions, mushrooms, avacado, & mandarin oranges
Dessert - White chocolate mousse or eggnog panna cotta with raspberries
Open for any suggestions.
