Fusion Cuisine

Yesterday at the grocery store, I ran into one of my favorite couples, John and Sarah, who introduced me to Chet. I was shopping for last night's dinner ingredients, so we started talking about what we were each making for dinner. They asked me what I was making, and I hesitated a bit. As usual, I had cooked up a harebrained scheme, and I was a little embarrassed to reply with everything I had planned. Probably what is more embarrassing than reciting an overambitious menu is handing over a typed, printed menu and shopping list. They said, "What's the occasion?" I should have said that we eat weird stuff like this all the time.
Menu:
Roasted Red Pepper Goat Cheese Quesadillas with Basil Pesto

Grilled Beef Filet
Seared Scallops with Pancetta over Avocado and Wasabi
Roasted Corn Salsa

Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream
Chipotle Chocolate Sauce
Spicy Peanut Brittle

Fusion Cuisine

Dinner and a movie suggestion: El Laberinto del Fauno / Pan's Labyrinth.
