Having dinner at home is not something everyone wants. Maybe when the birthday boy is 55, mind sets change.
My first time eating foie gras, I was scared of the new taste and flavour. This is my second time having foie gras and nothing beats it than just having foie gras on top of a small piece of toast. With some pepper of course.
Bread is always a staple when we eat Western food at home. My mom made her famous garlic bread along with small baguette toasted slices.
Staple number two. Smoked salmon with a squirt of lemon always is a favourite in the household.
So much protein and starch calls for staple three. My mom always makes a simple salad to balance the meal out. Topped with a honey mustard dressing…never goes wrong.
Frozen king crab…is something new to our household dinners. We always stock up whenever crab is on sale. No extra flavour needs to be added because the crab is already salty.
The main: rosemary lamb racks. Just cooked to medium rare..all this food was honestly too much for 5 stomaches.
Dessert: mont blanc, I usually don’t fancy chestnut cakes, but this completely changed my mind about chestnut cakes. This was really amazing from Nakamura Bakery. I’m glad that my mom persuaded me to order this cake flavour.
So having birthday dinner at home isn’t a bad idea after all.
