Man Pleasing Dinner

Tonight is our last night home together for some time.  I wanted to make a very special meal for HH.

Cherry Tomato Salad with Buttermilk-Basil Dressing
(adapted from The Neelys)

6 cups red cherry tomatoes (I would have added yellow, but didn't have that selection choice at the grocery.)
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
1 shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
green onions
parmesean cheese

1.  Put the cherry tomatoes in a large serving bowl.  Season with salt and pepper and toss.
2.  In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, sour cream, basil, shallot, and garlic.  Season with pepper.  Drizzle the dressing over the tomatoes and toss.

Witty in the City's Man-Pleasing Chicken

I did adapt this recipe by adding 1/4 cup of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce.  I read in the comment section that this helped to "cut" the mustard taste from some people who thought the taste was too strong. 

Rolo Cheesecake Bars
I read through my upcoming desserts I had printed off, and HH said he wanted this one.  This should have been made in an 8x8 pan.

What special dinner would be complete without your own personalized banner?

Off to pack.
