Default Saturday Dinner - 26 December

I get to spend another day in the kitchen!!! Though I've never had the pleasure of meeting her, Lou's mom had a saying "if you cannot do it with a smile, don't do it at all".....and I try to live up to that saying. My brother and his wife are coming for dinner. My nephew from CA is coming as is my nephew from FL. So, we're 6 for dinner tonight.

First course is quail eggs (my plan is to poach them, but it may be hard boiled, depending on how much the shells piss me off) with candied cranberries, toasted pignoli nuts over raddichio and arugula with truffle vinaigrette. Voignier wine for this

Second course is still up in the air. I've officially tossed the home made ravioli idea. HOnestly, I just don't have the time. I'm still considering the pistachio stuffed rice balls (but, I may just save that for the next IC). If I don't do the rice balls, it's going to be gnocchi with figs and pancetta in a light cream and sage sauce.

Third course is slow roasted crown roast of pork with an apple and herb stuffing, oven roasted beets and home made apple sauce. We have a beaujolais for this.

Dessert is tiramisu - which I really have to get busy on. Should have done that yesterday.

I want to get to the gym at some point today.....wish me luck with that!!

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

By special request of the Mother-in-Law:

CHUCKWAGON COOKIE'S BULGOGI!!!!
And fried rice!
On lettuce wraps, with special dipping sauce.

The other half of Chuckwagon Cookie (my best friend) is coming
up to help cook....OK, eat!... should be a fun night with lots of
Miller Lite. (He is beer-challenged, poor guy.)

It will look something like this:

I know how you feel about that overabundant food, luvs. Try asking for a to-go box when you order, so you can put half of it away to take home as soon as it's served. I luv leftovers for breakfast or lunch!

(a la Verablue)

First course is a salad with freshly picked arugula, romaine and butter lettuce from our garden, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and fig-vanilla balsamic vinaigrette.

Second course is pan-grilled chicken breasts with the prosciutto-wrapped asparagus I forgot to make yesterday and antipasto pasta with pesto (say that 10 times fast!) I didn't make Christmas Eve. More Christmas cookies for dessert.
