Christmas Dinner

POST #    1994

Sunday night, I went over to J-Dub's as he and Jen graciously played host for a Christmas dinner. They ordered an insane amount of food from David Bouley's Boulet Bakery. It was an insane amount of food, especially purees. On the menu for dinner was a lobster bisque, string bean and walnut salad, butternut squash puree, potato puree, zucchini mint puree, chestnut puree, roasted chicken and a roasted pork loin. See? Insane amount of purees. Needless to say, I'm pureed out for the rest of the year.

Pictured are the butternut squash puree, zucchini mint puree, string bean walnut salad, Bouley's signature bread, the pork loin and roasted chicken. And yes, the zucchini mint puree was kind of strange tasting, but not in a bad way. Just something I've never had before. I'm not sure I could taste zucchini at all.

Tomorrow, pictures of dessert including a really tasty Bûche de Noël.

The mint cucumber puree was weird. I think I need to throw it out. But the chestnut puree was great - I've been eating leftovers for breakfast!

Yes, we're still eating lobster bisque. I expect to finish it by February.
