I was employed this month and actually paid real money. I determine to spend it on a Farewell, Thanksgiving, Xmas dinner. I like nothing better than sitting around a beautifully laid table, groaning under the weight of fine food and excellent wine, being jolly with good friends.
We set off to various fish markets to buy fabulous fresh seafood. During the quick lunch break I decide to eat the big fish eyeball in my fish soup.
The menu is :
Sashimi and Oysters
Steamed clams, big ones
Pan fried Scallops in cream sauce
Russian Potatoes (Thanks Arisa)
Salad with exotic dressing (Thanks Izumi, unfortunately I was at the stove when she explained exactly what the dressing was.)
Pan seared Foie Gras
Blanc de poulet a la creme.
Apple Crumble cake with cream, strawberries and Nagano apples (Thanks Mary and Tomomi)
We drank; White Bordeaux, Chablis, Vouvray, Champagne, Morgon and quality Sake (Thanks Ichiro san)
Unforgettable meal. Hilarious conversation.
Now I am off to Covid infested San Francisco. At least I will pass away happy!
