Well, I can at least say the goose was a success! It wasn't at all fatty like I remember. Actually, I found it tasted like turkey drumsticks.
Unfortunately, by the time we got to the entree, even with the long breaks in between courses, we were all so full, no one could eat much! Of the five of us, two liked the goose quite a lot (including me), two could take it or leave it, while one didn't like it at all. Which isn't too bad, considering we all have very different tastes!
As for the rest:
Smoked mozzarella mashed potatoes
(quantities to taste)
yellow potatoes, cooked and mashed with:
smoked mozzarella, shredded
salt and pepper
Broccoli done the Julia Child way.
Place florets and peeled stems in a pot with about half an inch of water. Cook with lid on until almost tender. Drain. Return to pot with butter, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Cook in butter until crisply tender.
Now we need to wait around for dessert. :-D
