Tonight's Menu

 When cooking for yourself, for a friend, or for a small soiree, it is important to use the utmost quality of food and drink. It is important to be considerate to guests and provide necessary silverware and platters, handkerchiefs, glasses, and, of course, proper etiquette. While courtesy is something you must pick up on your own, I intend to offer what little I can to start you on your way to creating the perfect, delecterble evening....Hannibal Lecter, M.D.

So  thought we might start with a simple salad.

  • A base layer of baby spinach leaves
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Raisins
  • Mandarin orange wedges
  • Pine nuts
  • French goat cheese
  • Topped off with raspberry walnut vinaigrette dressing.
For a starch we will have wild rice.

The main course will be codfish covered with chopped macadamia nuts and drizzled with butter and lemon.

We'll wash all that down with a cheap savignoun blanc, preceded by a goose pate and crackers. 

I do all the cooking around here. Mrs. Phred washes dishes and I put them away....a fair division...
