Dinner tomorrow night!

Alright, so I don't know if you are taking my mom's webinar class, but if you are, then you will know that I am gathering recipes, and writing a few of my own and am creating a cookbook, complete with my own photos of the food, and if there is a big historical background to the food, a short paragraph. If you aren't a part of my mom's class, well...now you know. :) Therefore, if you have any recipes or such you want to share with me, then please email them to me! Im going to test them out, see if they meet my standard ;), take pictures of them, and if I ever get this project off the ground, then I will send you a discount coupon for the cookbook :) And yes, I will give credit where credit is due for each recipe :) [Which means, if you send me a recipe that isn't your own, please specify whose recipe it is, either your family's, or a friend's, or even if you got it off of google, which site. Thanks!]

Sunday is my birthday- yay! I will be twenty, what a strange idea... When I was younger, I was convinced that I would die before I turned eighteen. I don't know where I got that idea, but it stayed in the back of my mind. So for me to turn twenty is a pretty big step. I will no longer be a teenager! Wow! Thus, I am hosting a small dinner at my house Saturday evening. Nothing big, just a few close friends and family, but I am thrilled. I haven't thrown a dinner myself, ever. Do you want to know the menu?

Well....

Ok, sure, I can't resist sharing ;)

Here is the layout:

Appetizers
French loaf of bread
Dipping Oil
Cheese & Crackers

Soup
French Onion Soup

Salad
Autumn Salad, with apple slices, pistachios, and cheddar slices

Main Course
Flank Steak
Chicken Fried Rice
Some sort of greens [either broccoli, spinach or green beans]
bread

Dessert
either:
mini gingerbread cupcakes
or
Strawberry cake with cream cheese icing
or
A healthier version of chocolate cake, with chocolate mousse icing

'Special' Drinks

What do you think? Does this sound yummy to you, or a course you would skip?

I hope you have a lovely day! I'll try and post some pictures on the go tomorrow :)
