We've been invited to an Aunt's 95th b'day party at Mistral. What's good / bad there? I pulled up their menu and the escargot sounds like a winner as does the linguini and cajun shrimp. Are the steals worth damn near 50 bucks??
For the sweet certainty of scrumptious, lasting impressions, serve this citrus-flavored ricotta cheesecake.
Roasted Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing
Roasted acorn squash is a hearty, relatively low-effort meal that's easily adapted to whatever ingredients you prefer (or happen to have on hand). The wild rice stuffing here is enhanced with sauteed onions, shallots, and celery, plus dried cranberries and toasted pecans for crunch. Replace the butter with vegetable oil and it's also vegan! Or go meaty and add crumbled sausage to the mix. Get the recipe.
