Sunday = the day of the 5 course meal I would prepare (all by myself) for my husband. I have to say I was looking forward to preparing these foods/techniques I've never used before. I was also nervous that I wouldn't be able to produce anything edible. No worries, I had pizza on speed dial!
First, I would like to introduce you to some new pans that have joined our kitchen family.
All-Clad Copper Core 3-Quart Saucier:
Which was inspected by Melvin Bell. Thanks Melvin!
4 - Quart Braiser pan:
I was very excited to use the new pans while preparing today's meals!
5 Course Meal
Below are some pictures of the final products of the meal. I will be making separate posts to review and explain how I made each one of these dishes.
First course, Andouille French Bread Pizza with Pickled Jalapenos (perfect for Superbowl party):
Second course, Seared Scallops with Caper and White Wine Sauce:
Third course, Salad:
Fourth course, Cauliflower Puree:
Roasted Spicy Broccoli and Grilled Herb Rubbed Filet Mignon:
Fifth course, Banana Soft Serve (thanks blog world):
Not sure which blog this banana soft serve originated but it was a really good alternative to ice cream. Thanks!
This meal took a lot of work not only in preparing and cooking but planning, shopping and cleaning!
Overall I think it was a success. My husband seemed to really enjoy the meal and that makes me happy!
Hope everyone weekend was fantastic!
