First Anniversary Dinner

Christina and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary yesterday. To mark the occasion, I cooked a pretty fancy dinner. The appetizer course was homemade potato chips with freshly made aioli (garlic mayonnaise). As an entrée I braised lamb shanks with caramelized onions and shallots served over wilted red chard and shitake mushrooms. For desert I made chocolate soufflés with white chocolate whipped cream. We shared a rather disappointing bottle of 2000 Château de Cruzeau from Bordeaux. The wine was thin and somewhat tart. Nevertheless, despite the wine, I think the meal was a success and the soufflés were sublime. I'll be making those again.

What is this thing?

This is where I rant about whatever I want. Here is where I share my thoughts, dreams, strange ideas, and general commentary on my life and the world around me.
