Goat's cheese and sweet capsicum (bell pepper) salad
Schnitzel with Black Olive Crust
Garlic and Tomato Simmered Beans
Warm Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cakes
As I am currently pressed for time I will try to summarize the meal. Starter: the peppers were amazing and the dressing is something I am definitely making again. Very vibrant colors and flavors. Main: Soft flavors, but I liked it. Apparently schnitzel is to Germany as parmesan is to Italy. Great size of meat. Super easy to make. And the black olives offered a background flavor that just made you go "hmmm". Side: My least favorite. The tomato texture was not my favorite and the beans barely had a hint of flavor. I might be spoiled though because I make a bean and tomato side from a recipe my aunt gave me and those are out of this world. Dessert: Basically it was a super easy to make apple cake that was moist and light and flavorful. Probably our favorite dessert so far. One thing I keep noticing is that the book says that it makes "4 servings" but when I make it the servings seem to be closer to 6-8. Just something to consider.
Bon appetite and April 18th cannot come soon enough!
