First Dinner 1/1/07

so what will be your First meal of the Year?

I`m doing Chinese style Pork with Chicken fried rice. I`m undecided to do Sweet`n`sour Cantonese or Szechwuan style sauce?

Happy New Year! Glad you started this "Y". ((Oh, I didn't see that luvs had started one too))
I'm already defrosting the ground sirloin for FraidKnots mince and mashed.
I have to get more taters in a little while to do the mash.
I have peas and meat which is a good start.
For breakfast it's soft scramble, apple bacon, fried tates and home made cinnamon rolls. The bread machine is working overboard right now whipping up the dough. I'll roll it out, then fill it with brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon sugar and dry instant vanilla pudding, roll it up, let it rise and cut it, then bake. Being careful not to overbake, I like them gooey not dry.

We are spending the day at my oldest daughters today. She and I are going to put two whole chickens on top of a bed of fingerlings,sliced shallots,garlic,rutabegas, turnips,carrots,celery after we lift the skin and smear the meat with butter mixed with shopped parsley and thyme. I'm thinly slicing some leeks, going to saute them in butter then put in a casserrol sprinkle with soft bread crumbs mixed with more butter and some parmesan and bake just til hot and the crumbs start to toast a little, A big salad, rolls, dessert is a secret as I was told not to ask

Today is the day of the holiday party for all of us at the restaurant, and man do we need it after a hellacious New Year's Eve. Everyone is supposed to bring over some food/drink etc. but Chef is hosting so I'm sure we'll have some good food tonight.

YT, I think sweet & sour sauce goes well with your fried rice. BTW do you have Chinese connection since you're always cooking Chinese dishes?

There will be no dinner for us since we are stuffed after a sumptuous New Year Day meal hosted by yours truly which consisted of Tom Yam Seafood Soup, Leek Pie (contributed by mil), Beef Wellington, grilled sausages and of course the tradtional Vasilopita with the coin hidden in it.

No, it`s just one of my fave foods, very simple, and fast to cook, tasty and for the most part quite good for you :)

I`m an Englishman 100%

YT, Chinese food is fast to cook and good to eat! (Borrowing the motto from Maggie's fast noodles). Seriously I agree with you 100% cos' I cook it every other day and also DH enjoys eating it as well.
