Last Saturday was a crazy day for the Sweeney's. It was the YWCA Wausau's 9th Annual Men Who Cook fundraiser. It was my first year working/organizing the event and it was Nick's first year as a chef. We had 23 tables of 8 with 39 men chefs. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun. A big thank you to Mark & Sara Sweeney who took all 3 girls for the day/night. THANK YOU!!
Friday night Nick prepared his signature dessert. Cheesecake duo (one chocolate crust, one NillaWafer crust) with 2 types of chocolate accents, berries and homemade whipped cream. This photo won't turn no matter what I do. Oh well.
The Grand Ballroom at the Jefferson Street Inn.
Their menu, American Bistro, was as follows:
Asparagus Rolls with Prosciutto and Basil Ricotta Cheese • Toasted Pistachio-Cheese Arancini • Squash Soup with Cheese Baguette and Cheddar Pepper Palmiers • Pear and Candied Apricot Mixed Green Salad • Beef tenderloin with green peppercorn sauce, Lemon angel hair pasta, Seasoned peppers • Cheesecake duo with triple berry sauce and chocolate accents
Nick and me at the end of the night. I still have shin splints from being on my feet all day/night. Next year I'm bringing multiple pairs of shoes.
