This was the last day for Lunch at Reflections, the student run restaurant at Monroe Community College. Sally, Judy, Deb and I went in for some French Cuisine.
Sally read us the menu.
It sounded good except for a couple things...(I don't do sea food).
This is what we had....
Amuse: escargot en croute: snails in a garlic sauce served over puffed pastry & sauteed spinach.
Mine (above) was done with mushrooms, theirs with snails.
First Course: veal consomme with slow braised oxtail.
Second Course: seared codfish with roasted exotic mushrooms and hazelnut butter, served with a fennel and orange salad.
I had veggies with it....
the others had the codfish.
Third Course: beef bourguignon with celeriac mash (outstanding!).
Fourth Course: oeufs a la neige with poached pear and sweetened chevre.
(Off the charts).
Home a little before three. We had a great time.
Next on the agenda....First Friday at the Alumni House.
Tonight the food was prepared by Carrie Maziarz of Canal Town Catering...a very generous donation from a good friend...and boy was it good.
Fried ravioli with a dipping sauce.
cheese and grapes....
(stuffed mushrooms from Java)
apple/sausage with roasted brussel sprouts
green apple salsa and chips...
turkey/roast beef and portabella mushroom wraps
Tons of people were there.
Home a little after 5:30 and the girls were waiting for me.
The usual food and tuck in....
Gucci and Phoebe helped.
