Supper Club: December 23, 2009

Twas two nights before Christmas and all through the house, there was the heaven-scent smell of cooking, and it wasn’t even a grouse.

Appetizer: Grilled Apple and Cheese Sandwiches. Basically, it’s grilled cheese sandwiches with apples squished in between. Loved it! You also know that I’m a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches anyways and Supper Club does not turn down cheese so it was a hit. You can even have it as your entree if you so wish.

Entree: Peppercorn-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Soy Caramel Sauce. Guys, this is another super-easy pork tenderloin recipe that I’m sure will impress your guests. The bite of the peppercorn crust is tempered by the sweet soy-caramel sauce. The pork was tender and moist and gone in seconds.

Side Dish: Roasted Turnips, Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Dried Cranberries. Okay, this is like a candy explosion in your mouth and had the colors to go along with it as well. Vegetables, sweet? Weird, good, but weird. The only problem we had with this dish is that it took almost 2 hours to bake, that seemed a little too long considering that the entree took only 30 minutes. So, we weren’t able to serve them both at the same time.

Dessert: Candy Cane Truffles. Another delicious truffle founded by Kim. I would say that this is the year of truffles. Very Christmasy. Unfortunately, she had a fight with the melted chocolate and the melted chocolate won. So we ended up with more like candy cane spoon fudge. It still tasted great, but not so pretty. Haven’t we learned that looks don’t matter, it’s what’s on the inside that counts.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
