We had our New Year's meal last night since James is going to be leaving any minute. James had the rest of the beans today for lunch, along with cornbread, and I had some cornbread. I'm not sure what I will have for supper tonight. I fixed and froze (in batches) a huge pot of Spanish rice the other day, so I will probably have that.

Pork roast, potatoes, gravy and caesar salad with apple pie for dessert. I think the grammas are coming for dinner.

It's the last night of work for my mechanic at work (He's retiring), so I'm putting on a big breakfast with some of his favorites for all the guys.

1. French Toast (Got some nice Challah drying out).
2. Home Fries (Just blanched some Yukee' Golds so those are prepped).
3. Breakfast Sausage w/Onions & Red Bell Peppers.
4. Hunks o' Toast, Over-Easy Eggs, Lot's o' Bacon.

Hope his aorta doesn't give out before he punches the clock for the last time...

At the recommendation of a foodie friend, Buck and I went to a "real" butcher shop in our area a couple of weeks ago and bought two beautiful New York strip steaks. Picture-perfect ones. We'll cook those on the grill outside and have French onion soup, baked potatoes, etc. Probably just Christmas candy for dessert. For some uncanny reason, we received enough candy this year to sink the Queen Mary. We're not big candy eaters, so this stuff should last us until Easter.

We've planned today to be low, low, low key. A nice lazy day. Back to the real world tomorrow. And, like Scarlett, I'll think about that...tomorrow.

Happy New Year!! I am fixing a pot roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions. The recipe is from a cookbook that my mom gave me for Christmas. For a side dish I am thinking about having Brussels sprouts and sourdough bread. Dessert is brownies that I made yesterday.

Sounds like he's as special as you are, kads!

Barbara, if you lived closer you'd have a standing invitation for dinner all week!

I'm making beef braised in red wine, sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli and some sort of starch. I was planning on polenta but just realized I'm out of corn meal. Maybe buttered egg noodles.... No dessert as DH has begun his diet and I'm doing my darndest to support him.

I made a huge pot of lentil soup.
Then breaded chicken cutlets, mashed yukon gold potatoes, and sauteed green beans.

That's it...the party is over. Welcome to the bataan diet.

Thanks! If I lived closer, I would be right there! What you made tonight sounds wonderful!
