Tax Season Kick-off Dinner

abud | Feb 7, 2008 06:46 AM

My SO is an accountant and to inaugurate the two grueling months that lie ahead, I want to make him a really nice dinner. He has two requests--Chicken Divan and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake.

Can you give me suggestions for:

1. A starter
2. A side that will go nicely with the Chicken Divan that will also serve as a vegetarian main
3. Garnish for the cake--

I am basing the cake off this allrecipes recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake:

I will make the mint chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chocolate chip cookies for the crust and sides--but what to garnish on top? Cherries and whipped cream isn't right.

Thank you!
