It's a cozy meal and I'm thinking pink. Filets, lightly crusted with crushed pepper corns, then seared to a pretty pink center and topped off with a fine brandy cream sauce. Those smashed potatoes where really, really yummy. Red skinned potatoes prepared with roasted garlic, chicken stock and smoked Gouda to give it richness and great flavor without butter or milk. A simple salad of spring mix, diced beets. red onion and goat cheese, tossed with my Blood Orange vinaigrette. Crepes with raspberry rhubarb conserve and white chocolate sauce to seal the deal. Check my previous posts for the crepes and vinaigrette.
