Here's to Romantic Evenings

Add a Comment

Dinner @ Jane's #1It all started with a very successful bid on a beautiful set of 8 Waterford crystal 8 ounce red wine glasses.  I went to a silent auction preceding the annual Goodwill Industries Banquet honoring community service.  I kept looking at their sparkly presence and looking and telling myself I really didn't need them.  Then, I decided to cut loose and bid on them and got all 8 for just $130.00--such a steal.  I even checked the internet for the Waterford site to verify the deal.

With such pretty glasses in hand one of my friends, Barbara Kline said we are free next Saturday night and we were off and running with party planning.  I decided to stage a romantic dinner using the crystal of course with white china, lace and silver. 

It was a chilly night for New Mexico, so a hearty dish that complimented red wine seemed in order. I decided on Beef Bournignone on parsley buttered noodles, for the entree.  I spurged a bit and used T-Bone and Porterhouse steaks for the beef to assure tenderness and wow, what flavor! 

For appetizers, we had assorted cheeses, duck pate and crudite with chipotle dip.  The side dishes were braised asparagus with lemon, gingered carrots with a caprese salad and for dessert home grown cherries in crisp ala mode. 

Dinner @ Jane's #2The real treat was the wine.  Jim Hammond who is a wine columnist and authority and Barbara's husband brought a 2005 Eagle Crest Barolo wine--quite wonderful for initiating the beautiful crystal glasses.

Linda Brown filled out the guest list and brought a very good Fetzer cabernet 2006 and suggested we all wear red.

Here's to great romantic evenings.  All you got to do is go to an auction and buy crystal glasses.  By the way the Beef Bournignone recipe is in my Hotter Than Hell cookbook.
