Last month, my friend Carol and I went to see the Rochester City Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty. I made a themed dinner for us to enjoy before the performance. Carol made the cute woodland themed arrangement from flowers in her garden.
Sleeping Beauty Castle Salad: Assorted greens, toasted walnuts, maple vinaigrette, sweet potato (cut with a cookie cutter), carefully boil to not overcook – I did not want the castle to fall apart.
Spinning Wheel Pasta: Mini wagon wheel pasta cooked, homemade basil pesto, green peas
Dragon Fire Tomatoes: Sauteed onion and diced tomatoes with black beans. Dragon tortilla chips (cut flour tortillas with a cookie cutter, place on cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray, spray dragons with cooking spray, sprinkle with dried basil, bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp)
Pastry Crowns with No Bake Cheesecake and Blueberries: I made my own pie crust and mostly used the directions from this but used a regular sized 12 cup muffin tin, I used this no-baked cheesecake recipe and served with blueberries.
