how to pull together a meal with disjointed courses
This is a very random question, but I made the mistake of offering my boyfriend ANY meal he wants for his birthday. He chose (I am so not kidding):
1. Maine-style lobster roll
3. Macaroni and cheese
4. Strawberry shortcake
I am going to make these all in small portions (almost tapas style) so we don't die or pass out during the meal from overeating.
The question is -- what can I possibly do for sides or appetizers in a meal with lobster, cheese, and steak? I guess anything green, but it all seems so unrelated that I'm having a hard time figuring out how to order the courses and make it have any kind of flow. I don't usually do meals with more than one or two courses so I'm open to any suggestions!! Much appreciated.
