New Year’s Eve 6 Course Meal at the Fawn House

Standard

This New Year’s Eve Evan and I had a dinner party for 6 of our good friends.  We have never been really big on going out to bars/restaurants/ downtown  for NYE, so we decided that we would do a 6 course meal and invite everyone stay at the house.  It worked perfect we all chipped in $20 a person and had a meal that was AMAZING and no one had to drive home afterward 🙂

You may notice something trending in this menu… can you guess what I got for Christmas from my Fry Daddy???

Here’s how it went down…

  1. Ooh, sous vide, fancy! I do love the idea of having a NYE dinner party — we used to do the same thing pre-kids. Hopefully someday I’ll get it together enough to do it again!
