The Menu

My friend Vivienne came over for lunch on Saturday and as she is as much of a foodie as I am, I thought it would be fun to treat ourselves to a gourmet menu. So thanks in great part to the Barefoot Contessa, we had a scrumptious meal of Saffron, Zucchini and Herb Couscous, Swordfish with Tomatoes and Capers and for dessert a killer Double Chocolate Pudding. (Still trying to decide how this pudding compared to Martha Stewart's Chocolate Pudding 101, which has been my standard in the past.)

Even better - I knew there would be enough leftover to invite my parents for dinner so they could eat the rest up for me. Dad even went home with the last serving of the chocolate pudding. I slept much better knowing that!

The meal was really was like being in a gourmet restaurant.

I'm going to try it out next weekend.

I found a recipe from an old cookbook over the week-end too, that I have (Delia Smith - she's a famous English chef) and I will send it to you for 'Chocolate Mousse'...I have never made it but it looks really easy and there are not too many 'fatty' things in it either.

Thanks again, Viv.
