This was the question that was asked by my mother every day when we spoke. We both enjoyed talking about food.
She passed away in 2006. I miss someone asking that question.
So this is where I will tell whomever what I am making for dinner.
It's okay that I did not receive any cards. Surprisingly this is an untapped event at Hallmark. Six years ago tonight I started this little blog. It has become an important part of my daily life, well almost daily. What amazing culinary delight did I plan for tonight? One of my favorites... Reservations!
I started the night of with a SGT Pepper. There are not enough 'o's in smooth to describe this. Smoked pepper infused local organic Rime vodka dirty martini garnished with Sriracha blue cheese stuffed olives.
For appetizers we had Mac & Cheese Bon Bons. What an amazing idea. Fried Mac & Cheese. What's not to love. Tasso ham, orzo pasta, artisan cheese served with a red pepper coulis. Along with the Bon Bons we had Crisp Calamari served with Snap peas, daikon radish, napa cabbage, carrots, lemon ginger aioli.
For dinner Chris had the Shoulder Tenderloin and I had the Caesar Salad with Grilled Steak. Delicious!
And we had dessert. A Chocolate Lava Cake. So good!
