Post Christmas Blues

Ahh the Christmas spirit has been packed away for another year and now it’s paying the credit cards and bills that is on all our minds.

It was after seeing a play in the West End, sitting having a coffee during the week before Christmas, that friends and I were discussing the fact that we buy cookbooks, foodie mags, and have our favourite foodie websites collecting recipes that never get on a plate.  This prompted us into action, we would plan to produce a meal of recipes we have always been waiting to  try  and get together and try them out.

The first evening has taken place: we had Parsnip Soup as a starter, Sea Bass with Citrus Fruits served with Vegetable au Gratin and Hasselback Potatoes for our main course and Nutella & Hazelnut Roule for dessert.

The parsnip soup wasn’t new to my repetoire but the maincourse dishes and dessert were and they lived up to expectation for ease of cooking, presentation and taste.

We are looking forward to another foodie night get together next month with lots more new recipes to put to the test.  You will find the dishes for our last endeavours in the recipe pages.  Here is pic as proof of the pudding, we all had empty plates and full bellies

Sorry about the quality of the photos I find it difficult to cook and take pictures at the same time!
