This week my husband and I celebrated 6 years of wedded bliss. We eventually will make our way over to a nice restaurant to celebrate, but for the day of what could be nicer and more appropriate than an elegant dinner in the home we have created together. It is under-ratedly (a word that only appears in the Jerusalem Seminary Dictionary) simple to create a restaurant quality, beautiful meal at home (we all practically do it every Shabbat!) and the effort that it takes is well worth it. I'm posting the menu to inspire you to create your own special occasion meal that you can and should customize to your own tastes.
"Anniversary" Cocktail (cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, fresh orange juice, ginger-ale, vodka)
Pan Seared Halibut with Lemon Cream Sauce
Cajun Potato Wedges with Garlic Aioli
Jeweled Fennel and Orange Salad
Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries
How fancy and restaurant-y does that sound?? And it only took about an hour to prepare!
Recipes to follow but I'll leave you with this teaser picture of the yummy cocktail...
