On the Menu Monday (MPM) - Week 20

We had an action packed weekend, but it was a ton of fun. 
Friday we attended the 19th annual Winefest which is a fundraiser which supports the University of MN - Children's Hospital. They have over 400 wonderful wines, food from some of the best restaurants in town and awesome silent and live auction items. We had a wonderful night!

Saturday we spent the day running errands and getting ready for friends to come for dinner and game night. A few weeks ago we took an awesome cooking class with wine pairings. I have been dying to recreate the menu at home. 
The first course was a french brie, a robiola and an alemar cheese with blackberries, strawberries and barrel aged honey paired with Charles K Voigner (all of the wines were Charles Smith wines, delicious!)
The second course was roasted peaches with seared scallops and micro greens paired with Kung Fu Girl Riesling.
The next course was a roasted boneless lamb roast and roasted fingerling potatoes. I made this recipe back in January and the boy and I loved it. We paired this with K Syrah. Dessert was coconut dark chocolate truffles and carrot cake truffles paired with The Velvet Devil merlot. It was a really nice night and so fun to do a dinner with pairings like that. 
Sunday was Mother's day. We took both sets of parents out to brunch and had a lot of fun catching up with everyone over a really nice brunch.
