Fine Dining...

On Saturday, we hosted a formal dinner in honor of Grama's 78th birthday. It was the whole deal - 8 courses, each plated right before serving. It was a lot of time and hard work, but worth every dirty dish! :) The following posts include all the course recipes:

- Shrimp cocktail
- Rosemary whole-wheat bread
- Mixed greens with asparagus and lemon vinaigrette
- Baked potato soup
- Grapefruit-mint sorbet
- Roasted Lemon Chicken on brown rice
- Skillet-braised brussel sprouts with bacon and shallots
- Molten chocolate cake with whipped cream

We served 2008 Castle Rock Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and apple-grape sparkling cider.
