Don't Read This If You are Hungry....

 Today....horses/food/food/horses.
 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.
Night all.

The food looks amazing! Fried Ravioli? I must look that one up, sounds like great finger-food.
I'm with you on seafood. I've tried, oh I've tried, but it just does nothing for me. Just give me the veg, I'll be fine!
