My sister and I are trying to plan a nice birthday dinner for my parents. I'm an experienced cook but have always had a little trouble with meal planning-- what can I serve together? Is there too much meat? Is this an actual meal? etc. Anyone have any tips/recipes/fail-proof menus they use? I want to do something seasonally appropriate, a little bit elegant but simple at the same time. A good meal to be paired with good wine and good people! Any thoughts at all would be helpful.
