Nicer things! I came up with Sunday's menu, and remembered how much I love cooking.
deviled eggs (both traditional and Mexican: diced tomatoes, garlic, sliver of avocado on top for presentation)
cherry tomatoes with blue cheese filling
Beef Wellington (yes, we had this at Christmas, but ham? Bor-ring. And the kids don't care much for ham, anyway) with good grainy mustard and horseradish on the table
fresh peas with mint
Brie and blueberry salad over fresh greens (and probably raspberries, because YUM) - raspberry vinaigrette dressing (can you tell I like raspberries?)
Roasted new potatoes tossed in olive oil, S&P, and fresh rosemary from the garden
homemade Parker House rolls with buttermilk glaze
lemon curd tartlets
ladyfingers, fresh berries, and creme fraiche
I wanted to spend yesterday learning how to make molten cakes, but too many things to do. Plus, making those, plus the Wellington, plus the rolls all at the same time in the oven? Too much. And BERRIES. Mmmmmmmmmmm.
So what are you having? Or for my Jewish friends that just finished Passover, any fun matzoh this year? Special desserts? Fill my inbox with spam: I want your favorites, your traditionals, the things you've only made once because it was complicated but OH so good. Mmm, give me FOOD PORN. Give me RECIPES!!
