Four Course Meal

Today's post is a CHEERS to my friend Mackenzie! This weekend, my best bud cooked an amazing four-course meal with wine pairings.  It was on her list of 11 things to do in 2011.  The meal was absolutely indulgent, homemade and incredible! Some recipes borrowed, some invented and I wanted to share the wonderful foods she prepared for us.

First Course - Sage Sausage Mushroom
ready for the oven... 


Second Course - Mixed Greens with Fig and Goat Cheese
*created by Mackenzie*
Red leaf lettuce
Chopped radicchio
Goat cheese crumbles
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
Black Mission Figs, (dried or fresh) sliced 
Fresh parsley, mint and chives, chopped

Third Course - Pesto Lasagna
*For the pesto, she also squeezed in all the juice from the lemon for an added zing! It was so fresh!

Fourth Course - Double Chocolate Cheesecake

Our tummies were very happy after a night with good friends and good food. Thank you again to Mackenzie for a lovely evening!
