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
