Menu for a Cold Inaugural Day

It's a glorious, cold day in Georgia. Sitting on the sofa with my tv clicker and a box of tissues, watching my President take the oath of office, I planned tonight's menu.

Sauteed Halibut Fillets
Winter Root Vegetables with Horseradish and Dill
Fudgy Brownies
The vegetables were from the Gourmet Cookbook and featured steamed Brussels sprouts, turnips, potatoes and carrots in a horseradish and butter sauce, tossed with fresh dill just before serving. I thought the vegetables were terrific, but as a whole, the dish didn't overwhelm the kids. When I make it again, I will just use the sprouts and potatoes, kind of a Lilliputian version of colcannon (with horseradish).
