“So, have you heard about the oyster who went to a disco and pulled a mussel?”” Billy Connolly

So the simple dinner of last night actually grew to dinner for 8. It was a good thing. Family, friends, and good food! There’s no better way to spend a Saturday night.

After a trip to St. Lawrence Market for the accoutrements, the evening unfolded as such. Roasted bone marrow on toasted baguettes, cherry wood smoked mussels with a shallot and cilantro sauce, and a flank steak marinated with soya, orange juice and rind and a little garlic. A fresh greens salad with pear, chèvre and candied pecans brought together with a tarragon dressing.  Nice!

We finished off with grilled pineapple and vanilla ice cream with ground Wurthers candies sprinkled on top.

It was a cool night but the evening was warm and toasty!

Needless to say everyone was in a food coma very shortly afterwards.

Be well!
