Midweek Dinner for Six

Well, I hope they are omnivores. It makes things so much easier. Besides, I have my heart set on short ribs. Yes, I know, beef. It's so banal. But comforting as well. And easy.

Red Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs
Roasted Parsnips and Carrots with butter and parsley
Egg Noodles with poppy seeds and butter
Green Beans "perfectly cooked" with pepper bacon dressing
Some great white and red wines, to be picked and/or purchased in the next 24 hours
Apple and Blueberry Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream

God, I hope they are omnivores.

A note on "perfectly cooked" green beans. The French Laundry and Keller are famous for the description of creating an abundance of water boiling that is as salty as the ocean as the perfect medium for cooking vegetables. I've seen a reference to properly cooked vegetables and the rule is that the vegetable should give no resistence to the fork, simply cut through easily.
