Warm Potato and Frisee Salad: 5
Caramelized Pears and Red Onions: 6
Croque-Monsieur: 10 (I’m pretty sure this is the first 10 I’ve given out.)
Chocolate Truffles: 7.5
In every Martha Stewart Living, there is an article titled, “What’s For Dinner?” detailing a four person dinner. It usually includes a salad or appetizer, entrée, side dish, and dessert. Not only are there clear recipes, but the article instructs the cook on what order to fix the dishes so everything will be ready together. In the February 2010 edition, the meal consisted of warm potato and frisee salad, croque-monsieur, caramelized pears and red onions, and chocolate truffles. My husband and I made this meal the night of the Super Bowl and we invited my mother-in-law over for dinner.I wasn’t impressed by the warm potato and frisee salad and the pears and onions just tasted burnt. My mother-in-law and husband liked both of those items, so it might just be my picky taste buds. However, we all agreed that the croque-monsieur was probably one of the best sandwiches any of us had ever tasted. I don’t like chocolate, so I didn’t eat dessert. My husband and mother-in-law loved the truffles. They said they were incredibly rich. They enjoyed them with a cup of espresso – they drank it out of our Martha Stewart china from Macy’s that was on our wedding registry.
