    One of the things I miss most when in the Motorhome is my big range cooker and all my kitchen gadgets. To make the most of our few weeks at home I have arranged 3 dinner parties with various friends. Tonight is the first and I have had a really enjoyable day in the kitchen although I have licked so many bowls I don't think I'll be able to eat much later!!
    Tonight's menu is:
    Starter - red onion and goats cheese tart in a thyme crust on a bed of rocket
    Main - salmon steaks with a crunchy topping of breadcrumbs, lime zest, parsley and whole grain mustard, served with creamy leeks, fine green beans and new potatoes.
    Dessert - White chocolate mousse topped with raspberry coulis and a rich dark chocolate cheesecake served with homemade amaretti biscuits and fresh cream.
    All washed down with some very nice Rioja we bought back from Spain for about €1.99 a bottle!!
    Might have to do a long bike ride tomorrow to burn that lot off :wine::party::rofl:

    I am not a fussy eater ( I say) but I wouldn't fancy the first 2 courses.

    the Rioja and pudding look good though(y)

    But we didn't cook it and dinner cooked at Chez Kerry would have been more fun. :)

    Oooh er, have woken up with a slight headache. Menu went down a treat but was followed by rather too much red wine. Just had to get up and take some ibuprofen!! :doh: Our guests loved the salmon topping so much they asked for the recipe, always a good sign :clap2:
