Beautiful Weekend

Another weekend gone - and the last weekend of the summer, too. Saturday was lunch and shopping and Sunday I was in an iron-chef type cooking competition and our team won! I wish I would have had time to take photos of our dishes, but I was running around the kitchen. Here was our menu (that we brainstormed in 10 minutes):

- Mixed greens salad with apples and scallion over a bed of fresh beets with apple cider balsamic, lemon bitters and avocado oil.
- Tea sandwich with date walnut bread and a goat cheese fennel puree
- Surf and Turf: Steak marinated in chocolate balsamic olive oil and cinnamon balsamic with a potato and carrot salad and smoked scallops paired with a blackberry and white wine sauce
- Nut and raisin no bake cookie with marshmallow inside, coated with dark chocolate and cayenne pepper with granola on top
- Traminette mulled wine with lemon bitters and cherry bitters, apple juice and cherry juice

Sadly, I didn't get to taste everything, but it must have been delicious. Hope you had a wonderful end of summer weekend.
