More Saturday dinner stuff: I went to See's last night. I chose their Dark Chocolate Chip truffle to pair with the port I am getting. I cut out the polenta (for the lamb & polenta lasagne) last night in little flower shapes with a scone/biscuit cutter. I am not making this lasagne in a pan...but rather, cooking the components seperately and assembling them as servings in the pan--then placing the servings under the broiler to heat through. I am toying with the idea of getting another blow torch--the one I have doesn't want to work properly.
One last idea (I just had) to serve with the mole sauce I made is to dredge some fresh pumpkin in some of the masa (maybe season that with adobo first) and fry it up...then plate it and decorate the plate with the mole sauce...
Tonight I was invited to a new restaurant opening. Should be interesting. I'll be sure to bring my camera and take some (crappy) pics... ha!
