Other Infomation

I know you said you want a low-dairy dessert, but I included my mascarpone cheesecake because it is to die for. Anyways regarding the main, we can also do the steak with a side of any of those pastas + the asparagus or any other veggie. Please hit the message button if you have any questions or want to discuss other options. I didn't want to overwhelm you, but there are a million things we could do.
