I love to cook, but have not done much "serious cooking" lately due to traveling, busyness, and $. Tonight though is going to be an exception. I am really looking forward to our gourmet feast and special candlelit time together.
What's on the menu you ask? For the first time in my life I will actually serve a four-course meal (five courses is just ridiculous for 2 people. Ha!)
1st course: asparagus soup with herbed goat cheese
2nd course: crunchy sweet brussels sprout salad
3rd course: stracotto with porchini mushrooms and french onion potatoes
4th course : truffle tarts with raspberries
If you are interested in the recipes, most of them are from the Food Network since I watch this channel while working out at the gym. Ha! If you don't want to hunt them down, email me and I'll send you a PDF.
Enjoy your holiday cooking and family feasts! I know we will :)
