Back to menu planning:
and yes, I realize this is mostly for me. But how awesome will it be next year when I can just go back and repeat my menu?
Corn and Avocado Soup with balsamic reduction and basil garnish
Salad with figs, walnuts, butternut squash and apples
Julienned salad of cucumber and mango with peanuts and mint (if it's hot)
Roast Chicken with Apples, onions and a Honey-Dijon glaze. Similar to my engagement chicken recipe
Brussels Sprouts roasted on the stalk with dried cranberries and maple syrup
Fruitcake Cookies- perfect because they have spices and dried fruits in them
Apple, Pear Crumble
Apple cider served in apple cups
I promise, I wrote that down without realizing that I've made most of it before. So I'm linking to those recipes and posts, but it also shows that while I might do something a little new with a garnish or glaze, I mostly stick to the same things I know how to cook and make actually taste good:)
What are you making this year?
