I’m brainstorming dinner ideas for Christmas. It’ll most likely just be my mom and me, so I doubt I’ll be able to make everything I want — besides, we don’t even celebrate Christmas anymore.
– cauliflower gratin
– mashed potatoes
– caramelized leeks with goat cheese and candied walnuts
– roasted calamari with an eggplant puree
And the meat would be lamb… Jason suggested I make duck, but I think duck would be better with sweet dishes. Though I think the caramelized leeks would go great with it… Maybe the gratin and mashed potatoes are too heavy to go together. It could go like this:
– lamb; mashed potatoes; roasted calamari with an eggplant puree
– duck; caramelized leeks with goat cheese and candied walnuts; sweet potato puree!?!!!?
Where would the gratin go?! I think it’d fit better with the lamb. Right? RIGHT?!
For dessert, I’m thinking carrot cake and a dark chocolate mousse.
