And on we go to what we ate;=)
Mum and her husband always sing at a choir concert at 4 in the afternoon so we drove home to their house around 4 and started doing the starters and main course, set the table and so on, so when they arrived almost everything was ready;=)
I set the table like this:
For starters we did a Toast Skagen and while Johan made the Skagen paste, I made the bread to have underneath. I used mum´s ginger bread form shaped as a heart to make them look cuter.
Johan chopping dill and red onion for the Skagen paste
And here´s the result:
Then on to the main course which was Filet Mignon baked into a butter paste and filled with Portabello mushrooms and onions
Johan putting on plastic foil around the filet mignon after the filling and butter paste has been rolled around the big filet:
And then in to the oven until it has reached around 55 degrees inside.
Then I chopped lots of potatoes and sweet potatoes, boiled them and then Johan added carrots, butter and spices and made a nice mash:
Then a really yummie sauce where he used morels, cream, fond, onion, whiskey, butter and flour.
First he put the dried morels in water to make them swell:
And the final result is here:
Then my dear mum had made the super yummie dessert which was a lingonberry parfait with crackers. I forgot to take a photo beforehand, so here´s a little half eaten dessert photo;=)
Later in the evening we had champagne, tosca cake my mum had baked and candy, nuts and tea. At 12 we looked at the fire works (me with my fingers in my ears=) and then we sat up until 2 and then we all went to bed. A very nice and relaxed New years eve! Hope yours were nice too!
