here in the Great White North and we’re planning two, count ’em two, feasts. Tonight the menu starts with chèvre and tomato salsa croutons, then potato and leek soup followed by confit duck legs with a wild mushroom risotto and brussels sprouts on the side. I made some pumpkin squares which we’ll have for dessert. On Sunday night we’re starting with little rye bread, cream cheese and smoked salmon canapés, a carrot and parsnip soup, then turkey with mashed potatoes, a yam casserole, and broccoli sides. All of that will be followed by a cheese plate and yummy dried cranberry, dried apricot, and white chocolate squares. All of that will be punctuated with several nice wines we have kicking around, including possibly an Amarone della Valipolcella that I have been saving for the right occasion.
Unless you invite us, that’s just mean! We miss you here.
