Appetizers and Champagne!
Sometimes a nice dinner can be appetizers, served with champagne. This isn’t something we typically do, as champagne is a bit of an extravagance, but there was a good sale on at a local liquor store.
Can you believe French Mumm champagne was $15 off for a steal of $28 ? We contemplated putting is aside for a special occasion…….then thought….what the hell. Then I spied a Taittinger and it was in the cold case. Perfect….we didn’t have to wait for the chill down.
So, the menu consisted of tropical fruit salad of mango, papaya, kiwi fruit and pineapple.
Toasted sesame and everything bagels from the bakery with sides of cream cheese and Vita lox
Marinated mushrooms and artichokes.......
Brie and Fontina cheese followed. By this course I wasn't even looking for the camera :-)
Right. It was grand and it was fun. And that is what we like about planning, cooking and consuming our meals. The fun. Now, we are cutting back a bit, both on calories and economizing....I love a sale...and you can find some mighty nice deals out there if you look.
I believe lox is on sale this week!
