|Bouquet garni on cookbook|
Six of my friends are coming over Sunday, late afternoon, for a Harvest Moon Feast. I have been toying with several different menu options, but as of now, this is it. It is getting too late to change my mind again!
Bar opens at 5:00
Dinner at 6:00
French lentil salad in Boston lettuce cups
Rabbit with shallots and pickles, basted with brown stock
Sauerkraut with bacon, potatoes and white wine
Courgettes in olive oil and butter
Apple pie with 7-year old white Cheddar or vanilla ice cream
I am just starting the brown stock, and I went outside with a flashlight and scissors to harvest rosemary, thyme, basil and parsley. I tied them together with some bay leaves tucked into the bundle. The scent of the bouquet garni is about to make me faint with hunger!
Are you hungry yet? I haven't had supper, but who wants to eat plain food when this is on the horizon? Think I'll just have some homemade chevre on rye crisp to go with my Martini and call it a day. .
