Guess Where We Were

I had a very special birthday celebration tonight.  And here was our (8th annual!) menu:

  • Pork belly, cheddar, fried egg on brioche
  • cinnamon doughnut
  • "pig in the blanket"
  • vegan sushi roll
  • "Raclette," melted cheese under a roaster on fingerling potatoes, pickled beets, smoked ham, pickled string beans, roasted cauliflower, carrot, and toasted baguette
  • Macaroni and cheese, three ways:  1).  four cheese with bread crumbs; 2).  truffle oil (my second favorite) and 3). Italian sausage and peppers (my fourth favorite--yeah, still lapsing)
  • Swedish meatball in gravy with lingonberry (my third favorite)
  • jerk chicken skewer
  • veggie empanada
  • kale salad with vinaigrette
  • escoviche fish tacos
  • caramelized Belgian waffle with chocolate drizzle
  • orecchiette with butternut squash 
  • brussels sprouts with pomegranate seeds and chestnuts
  • beet burger with feta
  • slider with tomato jam
  • tater tots with truffle aioli!!!!!!!  MY FAVORITE
  • short ribs
  • scallion salad
  • Japchae noodles
  • s'mores cake
  • s'mores
  • s'mores liquid shots
  • whiskey apple cake
  • white chocolate trufffle
Whew, and that's just the food we ate!  There was more we didn't even try (salmon, steak, grilled cheese with peppers, boozy snow cones, one little appetizer in this flaky egg roll, fondue).  Plus full open bar, whatever you want, but we're so boring that we just drank soda.

Thanks for a wonderful night!!
