The dinner went pretty well. I ended up modifiying the meal a bit based upon what I was able to get my hands on.
- Ginger apple sauce
- Honey oatmeal bread rolls
- Chicken breast in mushroom cream sauce
- Snap peas and olives
- Balsamic-glazed carrots
- Mashed potatoes
- Squash puree
- Chocolate cake with penuche butter cream
- Mini pumpkin pies
Everything came out pretty well although nothing was quite as good as usual. The guests were most impressed by the bread, the applesauce, the mashed potatoes, the chicken, and the chocolate cake.
Just about every single kitchen and dining implement is sitting, dirty, on the kitchen counter. I am toying with the idea of just throwing everything away and eating out the remainder of our time in China.
