    What about a salad to go with the main course?

    Sounds wonderful, Samuel. I can only echo Mirjam's comment ... I think a green salad is in order, perhaps something simple like baby spinach and slivered red pepper dressed with a light vinaigrette, or maybe even some steamed asparagus. Something green, anyhow icon_smile.gif

    Lennie's right, something green and simple, although another suggestion would be halved baby (I won't say cherry, I know what you'll think) tomatoes mixed with some minced fresh basil and your favorite balsamic vinegar/olive oil dressing.

    Samuel, if it's not too late, I'd like to suggest a rum-cheddar spread I make that you might like to serve to your parents. Check it out:
    Cheddar Rum Spread
    And if I am too late ... I hope you had a great time!
