Lamb Roast with Port Wine Dinner
You will look for an excuse to make this delicious Lamb Roast with Port Wine Dinner Menu again and again. Smells good, looks good, and is good! If you want to try something different this year for the holiday menu than the usual turkey, ham or beef – lamb is the way to go. This seven-course dinner menu is exceptional!
Served in the living room or kitchen. I have found that guests like to hang around in the kitchen while I prepare the last minute details of the dinner to come.
Stuffed “Deviled” Lemony Eggs
Stuffed eggs are always a favorite at any gathering. Add some caviar, and you’ve added a touch of elegance!
Salmon Rillettes – Rillettes aux Duex Saumons
This Salmon Rillettes recipe is a perfect do-ahead appetizer to serve before dinner.
2nd Course – Soup:
Poached Garlic Soup
This soup recipe is a definite “10.” Your guests will never believe how much garlic there is in this soup. This will be one of your favorite soup recipes.
3rd Course – Salad:
Burgundy Salad with Poached Egg
This is a classic French salad from Burgundy, France. Everyone you serve this delightful salad to will want the recipe.
4th Course – Palate Cleanser:
Mint Julep Sorbet
This Mint Julep Sorbet is definitely a treat for mint julep fans – so refreshing and so delicious! Perfect served for a lamb dinner.
5th Course – Main Course and Side:
Lamb with Port Sauce
You’ll look for an excuse to make this delicious boneless leg of lamb again. Smells good, looks good, and is good!
Asiago and Sage Scalloped Potatoes
I really like scalloped potatoes! Asiago cheese is a hard cheese with a slightly sharper flavor than Parmesan cheese. If you can not find Asiago, substitute aged Parmesan Cheese.
6th Course – Dessert:
Chart House Mud Pie
This is one of the signature desserts at the Chart House restaurants. It is so easy to make and your guests will love it!
A good way to end a meal is with a (decaf) latte.

Golden Rules of Food Safety – IF IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! If you have any question in your mind about the freshness or safety of eating a food product, throw it out. It is better to be safe than sorry!
Picnic Safety Tips – There is nothing more American than the picnic. Picnics can take on many forms, such as the community picnic, friends and neighbors, tailgate parties, or ball games. There is also one sure thing at every picnic-lots of good food. The important point is to have safe and healthy food, not food that can cause food borne illness. Always prepare and store food properly.
Summer Safety Tips – Summer is the time for barbecues and picnics. The biggest party crasher at summer picnic and buffets is food borne bacteria. You can not see them and you can not taste them, but you sure can feel them if illness occurs hours or days later.
