Dinner at Diane & Yvon’s

We arrived at my aunt and uncle's house for dinner a couple of nights ago and were served some yummy paté, grapes and shrimp upon arrival. Shortly after, one of the most decadent appetizers I've ever had popped out of the oven, warm brie and toasted pecans bathing in a pool of maple syrup – amazing.

For dinner, we started off with a fresh spinach, mushroom, dried cranberries and pine nut salad. Our main was prepared by my cousin Renée, who cooked up a mouthwatering pork tenderloin she had marinated in honey, garlic and balsamic. It was so tender and flavourful I couldn't help but have seconds. Roasted potatoes, crisp green beans and carrots completed the meal. And as if that wasn't enough, a sweet Christmas loaf with chocolate wafers was served with coffee for dessert.

Thanks so much guys for such a great meal and wonderful company!
