Let's Talk Dinner

Anyone will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That may be so in terms of metabolism and brain function but dinner, oh thy lovely dinner is the most important to me.

Dinner is meant for sharing your day, relaxing, being intimate, in no hurry to finish and the fact that that candle light can be involved should seal the deal for most. Dressed nicely with even nicer manners and etiquette. Soft music hanging in the background with all the worries of the day soon to be consumed in every sip, every bite. You can either go out or stay in.

Dinner portions are usually larger, the lighting more dim, enjoyed with adult cocktails and the content of your plate can be so exquisite : Springer Mt. Chicken with orange confit, Spanish lentils, red wine-paprika jus, marinated mushrooms, mashed sweet & white potatoes with truffle oil, sea salt -- all meant to be savored right before chocolate custard with red wine caramel sauce.

How could one be so rushed through something as decadent as this?
