Elegant Eating

Last semester for one of my culinary arts classes we put on a 6 course dinner. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun! This semester I found out that the class was going to do it again, so this time I was able to be a guest rather than the hostess. Christina, Lori and Kurt came with me! 

They even had an ice sculpture of the Eiffel Tower at the dinner!

Here we are waiting for our food to come:
Kurt did not want to take a picture with Christina...

We had to choose between two different menus with set courses. 
Here was my menu:

Appetizer: Savory Shrimp Cheesecake

Salad: Walnut Pear Salad

Soup: Butternut Squash Soup (it was so good I forgot to take a picture of it)

Sorbet: Cranberry Pomegranate Sorbet

Main Course: Steak with Horseradish Mash Potatoes and Asparagus

and last, but not least Dessert: Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Mouse 

We all went away satisfied and full. We decided that if we were rich we would eat like this all the time. I had so much fun with you guys. Thank you Christina, Lori and Kurt for coming with me! 

The next day Christina and I were walking on campus and look what we found...

Christina wanted to kick it, but we didn't want to mess it up. But to satisfy our urge I got a picture of Christina pretending to kick it.

The weekend went out with a Bang!!
