I keep forgetting to post about this! Mister and M's boyfriend J made myself, M and another friend K dinner last Tuesday. Monday, M and K had made dinner (I helped a bit), and as a joke, M commented that the boys need to make US a dinner. I said, 'yeah, 5 courses!' and M threw in 'tomorrow!' Well, they took us at our word, and we had a 5 course meal for the next evening.
Course 1: toasted french bread rounds, topped with carmelized onions and goat cheese
Palate Cleanser: lemon sorbet with a sprig of mint
Course 2: baked pears with a spiced, ginger honey sauce and topped with slivered almonds
Course 3: boeuf bourgignon
Course 4: cheese platter with french bread
Course 5: chocolate (all Valrhona, all single origin)
There were two wines to accompany, but I forget exactly what they were.
And now for the pics! No finished meal pics, sadly.
