Buttermilk mashed potatoes with caramelized onions. Although outside is 1000 degrees,  I am still in the mood to cook an elaborate dinner for the two loves of my life.  Tonight dinner is a favorite of all of us.

If you never tried caramelized shallots today is your day to try them. Slicing them thin and sautéing them with butter as a result the sweet tasty juices are released. The buttermilk will balance the shallots hence less salt seasoning will be needed.

A great chilled bottle of Chardonnay, some wonderful smooth music and here we are having a romantic candle light dinner with our son.  Romance with seven years old you may say?  Got to start them young…
To all happy Sunday and wishing you a fantastic week to come
