Last Friday was Carol’s birthday. Instead of going to a restaurant, I offered to make dinner for her at my home. I made the Vegetable Wellington from Thanksgiving 2018 that she loved.
Note: Since this dinner was on a Friday night after work, I did some prep Thursday evening: roasted the vegetables, made the pesto and soup. I kept the dessert easy by buying it Friday afternoon at Wegmans.
Lentil Soup – this was easy to make and delicious. I needed more vegetable broth and did not use the grains of paradise.
Wegmans Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake (half size)
My critique of the meal: Wonderful meal! The only thing I would change is to cut the shallots smaller for the Citrus Wine sauce. It would look prettier on the plate. I don’t usually buy dessert but it saved time and was a special treat.
