Tonight's Menu - Outstanding Rib Roast


Baby and I did a little rearranging not so long ago (well actually I did, one night when I couldn't sleep) and removed our dining room table. But then we were having guests over for dinner in a few days, so what to do until the new table arrived? Well, gougeres at our apartment for appetizers and wine and then move across the hall to our friends place for a proper sit-down! I set their table the evening before and prepped as much as I could ahead of time so our migration would be quite effortless. Here is what was on the menu, with links:

Tonight's Menu
Serves Six
Gougeres - serve with an inspiring red wine
Yorkshire Puddings with Lobster in a Vanilla Chive Sauce - a little bit of a twist here; I used the sauce to pour over the Yorkshire Puddings instead of the Bread Pudding the recipe suggests
Standing Rib Roast (four bones), unwrapped from packaging and let dry for 2 hours in fridge sprinkled with salt, pepper and Bavarian seasoning from Penzey's, cooked until internal temp was 135 degrees--let stand for 20 minutes
Boston Cooking School Brownies and slivers of Harvey Wallbanger Cake topped with homemade Pistachio Ice Cream

What an outstanding evening we had indeed!

Soundtrack: Dexter Gordon, Ballads; Stanley Turrentine, The Spoiler; Miles Davis, Birth of the Cool; Horace Silver and The Jazz Messengers
