An Impressive Dinner


Category :

A few weeks ago Jason had a great idea.  We would take turns and make to plan, shop for and cook multi-course "Impressive" meal for the other.  It was a challenge, but not necessarily a competition.  Just a chance to do something nice for the other person and a way to celebrate the holidays.  Cassie went first.  She had about a week to plan her meal and then had a full day to prepare it (although she only needed about half of it).  One of her methods of approach for this impressive meal was to push herself outside her comfort zone to make a truly impressive meal.  While everything turned out wonderfully she definitely decided that she won't make a meal of that proportion without help again.  The menu included the following.

Course 1: Stuffed Mushrooms

  Course 2: Seared Scallops Over Salad Greens with Blue Cheese

Course 3: Grilled Marinated Steaks with Dill Butter, Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions with Gorganzola

Course 5 (not pictured): Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with Homemade Dark Chocolate Sauce

Check back for a few of the recipes.
