Pizza with BBQ Sauce, chicken, bacon, and onion. Yeah, my co-worker was buying dinner for all of us stuck at work, and we didn’t have the heart to tell him how bad his favorite pizza sounded. It was alright.
Appetizer: Smoked duck breast atop grilled polenta
Salad: Mixed greens, pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, dried cranberries and goat cheese served with shallot vinaigrette
Main course: Grilled beef filet served with lobster flake and sauce bernaise, sour cream and chive whipped potatoes, spaghetti squash and steamed asparagus
Dessert: Marquis au chocolate; chocolate genoise cake layered with chocolate ganache topped with hazelnuts and chocolate leaf.
And then we danced until midnight.
It was at the Denver West Sheraton New Year’s Eve party.
Four egg rolls, chow mien, chop suey, almond chicken, fried rice, two chicken balls, two fortune cookies, and water. At home, I nibbled the last chocolates and drank two glasses of diet cream soda. I was too full to drink the wine I’d bought on the way home from dinner out, so I toasted with the diet cream soda.
Officially for dinner we had crusty bread, pasta primavera and sausage lasagna.
Since it’s a long night, we also had a variety of chippage, baked brie with cranberries and walnuts, pickles and olives, crackers cheese and summer sausage, veggies and dip, tortilla chips with the choice of mango salsa, guacamole or salsa/cheese/sausage dip in the crock pot, roasted red pepper hummus with pita and a metric assload of cookies and mini-cheesecakes.
