Many, many dinner parties have been hosted in our modest dining room. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but last night I learned a new one!
As I planned the menu, it occurred to me that it would be lovely if I didn't have to leave the table AT ALL during dinner. Crazy, hey?
Cooking like a demon throughout the day paid off and with my husband preparing the final dish, dinner was truly a relaxed affair. The menu was as follows;
- Glazed onions
- Slow cooked tomatoes with green beans and chorizo
- Silverbeet and blue cheese tart (with melt-in-the-mouth homemade pastry)
- Beetroot and parsley dip
- Baked potatoes and garlic
- Date and chocolate meringue cake with strawberries and cream
...and champagne of course!
These glazed onions were such a revelation that I simply can't believe I have always skipped over the recipe. The result of quite a simple cook was onions that were soft and sweet and worthy of eating on their own.
There are a few left and I am thinking that they might go really well with my election sausage x
