Oh, man, I forgot salad. I knew I would forget something. I may seriously just run through Wendy's and get a couple of side salads rather than go back to Walmart today.

We decided on a leg of lamb, asparagus and garlic parsley new potatoes.
Never cooked lamb before, but my globe trotting wife has. Should be delicious!

Tomorrow... whatever open "chinese buffet" we can find! It's tradition! :)

Oh wow. Your suppers all look lovely. Tonight is almost always Ukrainian food night for us. Perohe and sausage tonight, with a coleslaw just because I'm craving one. LOL. I may do some cabbage rolls if I get inspired but no one will eat them but me! I have my chocolate tart in the oven right now so it will be all ready for tomorrow's dessert. It smells pretty darned chocolatey right now. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

It's a yeast pastry/dessert/bread from the northeastern part of Italy. Really delicious and I've made 3 this year. Two to give away and one for Buck and me.

Look here for the recipe I used. It's pretty much the traditional one. I couldn't get grappa so I used Kirsch and it worked out just fine.

Just grazing & nibbling. Fondue date night. (That stuck in my head from an Everybody Loves Raymond episode.) Had a craving for fondue ever since I watched a lady from Williams-Sonoma on the morning news/show. Don't have any Kirsch, so it will be cheddar - wine, crab, brocolli, asparagus, tomatoes, French bread. (I feel like I'm forgetting something.) Yoplait's White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse for dessert.

Next time, bleu cheese

Williams-Sonoma Fondue


Fondue Bourguignonne

Happy Holidays.
