Inauguration-What's for Dinner?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Anyone planning on having a celebratory inaugural dinner tonight? I didn't give it much thought until now but I'd like to make something special for the occassion. Any suggestions?

Note: This post is not meant for venting pro or anti Obama, most are likely to eat whether they are celebrating or not right?

Actually tonight we're having a different celebration. We're bringing dessert. A nut tart with gluten free crust in the style of a traditional pecan pie.

No inauguration events here (unless I suspect you have been invited to the American consulate or the American Embassy!) - so nothing special for dinner.

We're having toad in the hole with onion gravy!

We're having hope for dinner. With sides of pride, humility and optimism. And ziti with Bolognese sauce:D

Leftovers...

Shrimp from lunch at Frontera Grill today with our daughter and her two girls who then headed back to Pittsburgh,

and

leftovers from Greek Islands, a really nice restaurant in the western suburbs (with another in the heart of Chicago's Greektown.)

Couple bottles of beer.

Hooray.

pumpernickel panini with roast beef, swiss, sauerkraut, and horseradish with a salad. Simple food is sometimes the best.

Cape Capensis fillets, dusted with flour and pan fried, glazed carrots and a salad.

We just had a courgette velouté with a spoon of goat yogurt, then Gordon Ramsey's oven roasted rosemary & thyme pork chops with piquante sauce. Dessert will be a little later, in front of the TV (we often do that): greek yogurt with local orange honey.

You'll all be jealous of the meal we had last night. :rolleyes:
Shredded Chicken BBQ on
Whole Wheat Bun
Green Leaf Lettuce, tomato, and pepper ring salad with red wine vinaigrette.

You're right, I am jealous.

We had oden, i.e. various kinds of fish balls (no, not those balls, get your mind out of the gutter!) simmered a long time in light dashi stock flavored with soy and sake, dipped in mustard. The pot also had prettily-cut carrots and hard-boiled eggs. On the side, tai and tuna sashimi, fresh yuba dipped in soy, and fresh pickles. Not very American, but the sort of thing people in Kyoto dream about. I bought everything in Nishiki market, best of the best, and we drank excellent ginjo sake with it.

Okay, I happen to like oden. Got a problem with that? :)
