Day 23 - "Food" got us falling in love again!

Some things are worth giving a second shot at, so today I had a dinner party and I cooked for a few close friends of mine. I was so tired, I woke up at 6ish to go boxing day shopping. So stupid. Oh well, after when I came home, I relaxed a bit and headed out to buy some groceries!

Tonight I made:
Fifteen Christmas Salad
Pan-roasted salmon with broccoli and rosemary anchovy sauce.
Ultimate Fruit Meringue with vanilla cream, roasted crushed almonds and Carmel.

For instructions check my previous posts.

The thing that bothered me the most was actually sitting down and eating with my friends at peace. I had to always worry about the next step and set up for the next course. But the good thing was, I was well prepared.

The Christmas salad was simple and amazing. The portion was just right and wasn't a overkill.

Salmon dish was a little iffy, I should have added some roasted potatoes in there because it seemed like it was too little for the guys.

The meringue was a blast! I admit that I failed the presentation part but the taste was still the same. Tony loved the meringue, not the cream tho. The meringue was nice a crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. Absolutely amazing.

What I would do differently next time is, make the dessert on the night before. Add some potatoes on the side and prepare a better salad. It seemed like I was rushing things just a bit. Oh well.

Tomorrow, I feel for something warm. Maybe a warm salad. Warm potato salad! Oh my.
I need sleep.
Here are some pictures of my day. =)
