I'm a little late, but I didn't want to post following the game last night. Tonight we're playing bridge with friends and making dinner. We switch houses about every month and she's a great cook, and also great at presentation, which is not in my repertoire. Mrs. in UT decided she'd like Steak Diane, whcih we haven't had in ages, so I went French. For apps we're having toasted ciabatta with a good smear of European butter and a couple of anchovies. Also, brie, baked right in it's wood box, with caramelized onions and honey on top. Dinner is the Steak Diane, made with pounded shrip steak, Duchesse potatoes (whipped with butter and cream, then made into mounds with a pastry bag and star tip and browned in the oven) and simple pan-fried fennel. Dessert is a Geoffrey Zakarian recipe for crepes stuffed wih a ricotta/lemon filling, with powdered sugar, honey and chocolate syrup on top. Serving a Boulevardier cocktail- bourbon, sweet vermouth and Campari.
Tomorrow my nephew is coming for dinner, so I'm making him ribs with a gochujang glaze and cole slaw.
Sunday is Kol Nidre, and Mrs. in UT is making her usual chicken soup, roasted chicken and chocolate mousse.
What are you all up to?
