Dinner Party Tonight

Friday, March 11, 2011

Tonight we're having our biggest dinner party yet, and I am so excited. It's a ten-person group of both old and new friends that we're thrilled to be hosting. We've got a great menu planned and thanks to some prep work last night, I'm in such good shape that I'm typing a blog post instead of madly trying to get the meal ready. Hurray!

With cocktails we'll serve:
- Sliced apples, almonds, aged cheddar
- Goat cheese with herbs and foccaccio
- Cured meats

For dinner:
- Roasted Leg of Lamb marinated according to an old Julia Child recipe
- Parsnip, Potato and Leek mash from the big yellow Gourmet cookbook
- Roasted Asparagus with Feta from the big green Gourmet cookbook
- Mixed greens salad with chopped herbs and vinaigrette

To finish things off, there's dessert, of course:
- Lemon Curd Mousse with fresh raspberries from the big green Gourmet cookbook
- Coffee

How did it go? I made the lemon pudding cake from the green Gourmet book last night and it was terrific--and REALLY fast and easy. We had it with fresh berries and some vanilla (5HD) ice cream. Look for green garlic in the farmer's market soon--lots of fun in all sorts of dishes.

Where have you been? Didn't you survive the dinner party?

I want to know how you liked the book?
