Pork hock and chorizos sausages with mashed parsley potatoes. Dijon mustard for the pork and sausages.

Coleslaw, mixed red and green, with the dressing made using sherry vinegar.

1. Sounds wonderful.

We've got a chili rubbed elk roast in the instant pot...will deglaze with a dark ale to make gravy...served on garlic mashed potatoes. Big winter greens salad with tatsoi, spicy mustard greens and pea shoots. Cheers!

PS - love your pears and cheese idea for desert. Lovely.

2. Hubby asked for that "Japanese fried chicken"

Karaage. Served with a sauce made from mayo, soy sauce and sriracha.
Cucumber salad and steamed rice with stir-fried pea pods and mushrooms on the side.

One of my fav questions to foreign cooks I meet "How do you fry chicken?" Almost the entire world does it, there are some fantastic variations out there!

I gotta tell you though I would fry chicken for a week for just one plate of the elk roast! YUMMM

3. Think you'll have any left-overs?!

Just kidding.

We're sitting in the mountains watching the sunlight fade away while munching on black caviar from a shop in Brighton Beach, (great selections and very inexpensive). We have all the accessories: minced red onion, chopped hard-boiled egg, capers and toast.

Dinner will be chicken marsala over fresh angel hair pasta with a green salad.

We still have some tiramisu from a dinner party last week.
