Soon after they arrived we had ourselves a little Happy Hour!
A few snacks (Cheese from Zzest)
For dinner I made a dish on the menu at City Cafe (description) Maple Roasted Chicken Breast with Vermont white cheddar fondue; topped with fresh greens, red onions, cranberries, pecans and a warm bacon vinaigrette with garlic mashed potatoes.
Marinate the chicken in pure maple syrup for at least 3 hours
Prepare the garlic mashed potatoes by roasting about 2 garlic bulbs
Meanwhile I made a cheese fondue and a maple glaze (not pictured) along with a spring salad tossed with craisins, sugared pecans (Trader Joe's), red onion and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Here is the assembly of the dish:
Dinner is served! 5 Stars!
After dinner we had dessert (will post another day) and played cards and Scrabble
