It's Party Time

I am hosting a Valentine's Dinner Party next Saturday for 10 of our bestest friends. I love planning, cooking, and watching their faces when the food is consumed. I love seeing all my work being enjoyed by people I care about.

So here is the 7-course menu as it stands (with a few surprises), always subject to change based on ingredient availability, etc.

Appetizer:
Praline Brie w/crackers and apple slices

Salad:
Spring mix with dried cherries, toasted pine nuts and shaved peppercorn asiago, topped with molasses vinaigrette.

Palette cleanser - surprise

Soup:
Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Cream Soup topped with balsamic vinegar

Entree:
3-Cheese Manicotta with bolognese sauce
Bruschetta Toast

Palette cleanser - surprise

Dessert:
Sorry, I don't want to spoil this surprise for those attending. But it is perfect for couples.

I promise I will do my best to take more photos this time, or assign someone else to do it for me.
