so the dinner was a success..
the lasagna was a hit.. just labor intensive .. made 10 individual trays.. 7 x 1.75
roasted tom sauce. fresh pasta. ricotta. and mozz.
with a touch of buchamel and some ground beast from a premium japanese butcher shop here in nyc.
some even finished the entire trey.. i couldmnt have more then 2 bites. i was disgusted by lasagna at that point.
the calimari was good tooo.. though a lil chewy
i was multi tasking between the cake frosting and cleaning the calimari . sorta of a health hazard but dont worry i kept it clean.
any hints on how to make it less chewy?
i made a roasted red pepper sauce for it which was delicious though.
the salad was a hit.. pomegranate seeds. argula. .. balsamic vinegrette..toasted pine nuts.. prosciutto.
and the cake.. well that was a mess.. just ran out of time.. to frost 10 individual mini wedding cakes.. not to mention my frosting skills are weak..
i piped more butter cream to hide the bald spots.. used a herat cookie cutter to cute strawberry hearts and layed it on its lil green stem on top of eac h cake.
but yes.. no more baking for me.
thanks again everyone for your help and input!
