We started with Margaritas, 'cause it's the weekend. Supper was steak au poivre (Steak au Poivre Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network), crudités with blue cheese dip and ranch dip, and baked potatoes with sour cream (and butter for Stirling). That was a very tasty meal. The sauce was sorta bland, but it perfectly balanced the somewhat over seasoned steaks. I did use filet mignon.

I forgot this was the Chinese New Year!

I had a bad headache, for I didn't have a very good day, and so I made my favorite comfort food, my chicken soup. I made the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits with it, and DA, Gwen, Carl and I had all the foldable little tables with our food in front of the TV, watching the movie, "Dr. Zhivago." Carl had never seen this movie, and he liked it very much!

With love,
~Cat

I knew I was safe when we were out running errands later than I had planned. Figured the partying went on for about two weeks, so I'm using the shrimp tomorrow. Today we made a stop at Trader Joe's - ended up with dim sum for supper. From left to right: chicken shu mai, shrimp gyoza, pork bau biscuit, chicken spring roll - and the one thing not like the others, mushroom pockets. Not asian, but very tasty.

Oh .... we had leftovers. It is bad luck to start of the Chinese New Year with leftovers? They were good leftovers. So had KFC and I had a chicken/bacon/cheddar cheese "Stromboli".

They were very flavorful. Even though I messed up the recipe
I was on the phone and "going through the motions" of putting the sauce together, the balsamic, the hot sauce, oops, no honey left... opened up a new bottle of honey and added a 1/4c of that and then saw the jar of marmalade sitting there on the counter So your sauce was good with honey in it, too
