I made dinner for my in-laws.
Pepper steak w/garlic mashed potatos for dad. (filet mignon covered with cracked peppers. Deglazed the pan with some brandy, added heavy cream, beef stock, and a little tomato paste for color. I also piped the potato, so they looked pretty. :))
Chicken Marsala for Mom. (sautee' some crimini mushrooms in butter. Same pan, I sautee' chicken, deglazed with marsala wine, add chicken stock, heavy cream, roux, and reduced.)
For my g/f and I, we had Shrimps & scallops sambuca. (One pan, I sautee' fennel, onion, blanched carrots & Celery. Another pan I Sautee' the shrimps & scallops, deglazed with Sambuca, add heavy cream. Combine everything together. I placed the seafoods in a puff pastry cup that I made earlier and the cup sat on top of the bed of veggie.)
I made some generic napoleone desert. I had to use up all the puff pastry dough. :p
