I have friends coming over. Whenever it comes to sit down dinner, I get really confused with courses. DH and the friends are requesting for steaks. So I'll be making rib-eyes with mushroom sauce. To me steak is just incomplete without buttery mash. But it might be boring to others. So, what kind of potato dish should I make? May be a gratin would be good? or the starters, I am thinking eggs veronica. i would love to serve a pasta, hopefully homemade fettuccine alfredo but at what point of dinner should I serve the pasta? Along the steak or before/after the steak? The same question goes for salad. Please sort m out. I am also doing some vegetables to serve with the steak.
