One of my New Year’s resolutions was to be more social. I’m perfectly happy at home with all my toys, books, and Mr. Athena, but I realize that sometimes socializing with people can give one added perspectives on life. Plus, Mr. Athena’s been bugging me about it.
In this light, we’ve invited some friends over for dinner on Saturday. I’ve already decided on the main dish - Beef Burgundy - but I’m having trouble coming up with appropriate side dishes. I make a mean Beef Burgundy, but Mr. Athena and I tend to just scarf it up in a bowl. I want to be more fancy-like for the Big Dinner Party.
So whadaya serve with a main dish stew/soup kinda think like BB? I’m going to have some bread, and probably a salad. I’m thinking of Lemon Mousse for dessert. I want to have at least a couple side dishes with the BB, though, probably a veggie and a starch. Also, the salad is up for grabs. I know I want at least one course before the BB, but it doesn’t have to be salad.
Give me your ideas, oh teeming masses!
