Dinner party for the girls Saturday night.

Just putting this up here so's I'll know what we had for dinner.
It was blimming lovely even if I do say so myself!

Billy has been off work following a minor operation for the last couple of weeks and has been declaring that he's bored outta his skull - well I can assure you there were no such pronouncements on Saturday - mwahhahahaha!!!

Our menu was divine, and a little inspired to our visit to The Old Convent where the girls and i enjoyed a version of the starter last October (Plans afoot for our next visit real soon,,,yes!!!!)

This was the menu:

Amuse bouche
Quail Scotch Egg

Ummera Smoked Duck Cream -Candied Nuts - Highbank Orchard Apple Syrup - Parmesan Toast

Butternut Squash & Chili - Brown Seeded Soda Bread

Basil & Lime

Main Course
Roast Canon of lamb - Red WineJjus - Celeriac Puree - Potato Fondant - Balsamic Roasted Shallot - Broad beans

Pre Dessert
Lemon Posset - Sugared Blueberries

Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart - Raspberries

Petit Fours
Bailey's Chocolate Truffles

(The Bailey's truffles recipe can be found here on the blog)

Recipes will follow soon for the Ummera Duck Cream starter, the Butternut Squash Chili Soup, the Lemon Posset and the sinfully decadent Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart, and I'll link them as I get them written up.
