Special Dinner: December 2013
February 17, 2014 § Leave a comment
Mr. E decided on doing special dinners with a color theme for 2013. When Mr. E was little, he associated months with a combination of two colors (much like his colors for weekdays). His aim is to make dinner with ingredients that are naturally as close to each month’s colors as possible; food dyes are right out for this project. December colors are red and green.
We ended up very busy in December, so we decided to push the month’s special dinner to January. We started with a green and red salad: green leaves, tomatoes, cucumber and red and green pepper.
For the main course, Mr. E cooked salmon with green beans. He also made a red and green veggie relish to go on the fish. We drank local cranberry wine. For dessert, we had strawberry soup. The strawberries came from a local pick-your-own farm.
I selected one on the quilts Mr. E made as the table covering, put down green placemats and red coasters on that and added a container of partridge berries plus some warm-toned dishes.
It was a very, very satisfying dinner and a nice way to wrap up Mr. E’s color dinner year.
