going against everything I thought I was going to do, here is my menu for a dinner party this weekend. There will be 6 of us, but 2 will be potentially late (I will have a heads up when they are 3 hours from town), so I need to be able to hold starter/dinner for them, have hearty enough nibbles to tie over our other guests without ruining dinner. I found prime rib on sale 2 for 1, so opted for this over my original pork roast.
nibbles: brie/bacon jam crostini, pancetta wrapped shrimp
starter: celeriac/apple soup
main: roast prime rib, roasted potatoes, yorkshire pudding, gravy, braised spring onion, peas & lettuce
dessert: cherry clafouti
too much? too heavy? just right?
