Happy Birthday to Jen!

Jen's husband, Steve, decided he wanted to give her a very special birthday gift....a girl's night out, at home. How fabulous is that?!  I had the privilege of planning the menu, preparing and serving her special guests on her special night.

Here is what my son Christopher and I served:

Oven roasted asparagus wrapped with prosciutto
Baba ghanoush with warm flatbread

Arugula & red leaf lettuce with warm breaded goat cheese rounds
and reduced pear necatar and walnut oil dressing

Gaucho steak with 4 herb chimichurri (Guy Fieri's recipe)
Parsley pesto pasta

Warm bananas foster bread pudding with vanilla icecream and homemade caramel sauce

I would highly recommend the steak recipe.  The steak is marinated in tequila, lime, cilantro and garlic.  The chimichurri sauce is very flavorful and simple to make, you just put it all in the blender and give it a whirl.  Delicious!
