French Bistro Menu

Last month was Eric’s and mine 20th anniversary. We went on a cruise. Without the kids. It was fabulous.

Toes in the sandMy parents kept our boys. Before they left, I cooked a very nice dinner to thank them for watching Nate & Andy. My parents had given me the latest Barefoot Contessa cookbook, Foolproof, for Hanukkah, so I used that as my starting point, and pulled a few recipes from another Barefoot Contessa cookbook I own, Barefoot in Paris, to create a French Bistro menu to rival any restaurant. This is a menu to cook when you need to impress your dinner guests.

All of the recipes that I used are available on the Internet (just click on the recipe), so I’m not going to type them all in here. I pretty much followed each recipe to the letter and they were all fabulous!
French Madeleines from Costco were the perfect ending.
