Every December we have a lovely dinner at the Delano Inn and eat like royalty. This year was above and beyond. We felt like . . . what's better than kings and queens? Whatever - that was the feeling we all left with - not to mention full tummies.
Our caterer was new to us this year. Our very own MugShots. It is a coffee shop downtown that I wrote a blog about a few years ago.
Yes, they serve up coffee, tea and all the little goodies that go along with those beverages but they did a bang-up job in the fancy department Tuesday evening.
|Baked Brie en Croute with Apple Raspberry Compote|
|Butternut Carrot Bisque|
|Bacon Wrapped Dates with Goat Cheese. OMG!!!|
|Greens with Campari tomatoes, herbed goat cheese, cucumber and carrot|
|Sorbet Palate cleanser (by now I was speaking with a French accent)|
|Herb stuffed Roasted Pork Loin, asparagus with Grana Padano, Roasted Redskins smashed with Rosemary Compound butter.|
|Dinner rolls with something way better than just plain butter to schmear on them.|
|And then . . . wait for it. Peppermint Mocha Roll with hand dipped Chocolate Strawberries.|
|And to top it all off - handsome gentlemen Rob and Jamie; our chefs!|
