We did enjoy them, enough so that I'll be making them again (it takes a lot to please me food-wise). Overall the meal went well. I substituted steak for lamb and it still tasted great. The potatoes were amazing. I think I'd double the goats cheese, pecans, and berries in the salad next time, probably add an extra 1-2 T of Honey as well. The dessert was fine. The truffle thing turned out great and the mousse was good too. All in all it was a success! Thanks for the recipe! ^^

In retrospect I think the steak gave me a minor case of food poisoning. Drned un-fresh meat. >_<
