good bye dinner

Saturday night I invited my mothers sister and brothers and Annas parents to dinner, as a way of saying good-bye to everyone for the time I have been in Iceland.
I spent most of the day grocery-shopping, preparing the starter, which was scallops wrapped in parma ham with pan fried pumpkin seeds in lemon juice.
As a main course i made fillet of lamb in the oven with a sauce of mint gel in white-wine, served with oven baked potato wedges, melted mozzarella cheese, sweet-potatoes and a mixture of feta-cheese and sun-dried tomatoes.
For desert i made a large cake chocolate-coconut cake filled with cream, strawberries and blueberries.

while all the cooking was being done, Anna was working on her master thesis, which she has to hand in on Thursday...

Altogether we where 14 people and then there was the dish-washing afterwords...
But we had a great night and good fun

The car got some problems when we went to the swimming-pool. We opened the window, but it did not close again:0(. Something has broken inside the frame, so I had to tape some plastic to the window to keep bad weather outside and then we can take the car to the mechanic tomorrow. Today they did not have available time!

I am impressed by all the food you made. I knew you could cook, but didnt know you were that talented.
