Some dear friends are visiting my parents this weekend. We don't see them often so we thought it would be nice to have them over for dinner. This meal took a little over 4 hours to complete so it is a little more labor intensive. While I was cooking, my husband came home and cleaned the house for me. The Messy Cook would be nothing without her supporting spouse! The menu was:
Horseradish-Herb Crusted Beef Rib Roast
Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta and Parmesan
This meal was all about timing and I was very happy that I managed to get it all on the table at the same time! The pumpkin cake and table decorations were courtesy of Pinterest while the Brussels sprout was a recipe that I found in Southern Living years ago. It can convert any sprout hater into a sprout eater!
We had a great time visiting with our friends and hope to see them again soon!
