The SousChef has been planning to make Steve Krolls recipe for Oyster Stew for dinner, so I'm sure he'll make a report later.

Happy New Year everyone!
I did it! made the roux without burning it, cooked the oysters without over cooking. Kayelle was there with help and advice.

Souschef, you rock! Especially with a cold, and with your sweet wife having just had eye surgery. I'm truly impressed!

Steve! Brilliant!

Kayelle, how was the surgery and enjoy your oyster stew.

Dawg, you have to make stuff to be able to spelunk...

Everyone else, sounds great and simple, wonderful and fantastic. Happy New Year!!

We are having Blackberry Manischewitz (didn't have any MD 20/20) and pick out whatever from the fridge. I have a selection of olives, cheese and pepperoni. Shrek has an onion and garlic sandwich. "A Hard Day's Night" is on TV.

For dessert I am having a Bulletproof Coffee and Pumpkin Sherbet.

Happy New Year everyone!

Kayelle, I hope your surgery was a success (and I hope the oyster stew worked out. We're having it tomorrow).

And yes, my dinner was just awful.

Thanks to all for the good wishes.

First the good news....the oyster stew was wonderful.

My sight after cataract surgery yesterday is much worse than it was before. I'm really scared something went wrong. I'll see the Dr. tomorrow and I'm trying to think positive. Thank God I have one good eye.

New Year's Eve Dinner 12/31/2014

Same thing happened to me after cataract surgery, Kayelle. I'd had one eye done, and my vision was worse too. I was scared to death and drove to the vision center. Turned out there was a bit of bleeding and raggedyness, but it all cleared up in a few days. Keep using the drops, and good luck with your checkup tomorrow.

In the end, all turned out well, and I'm glad I did it.

Went to a New Year's Eve party and took a big tray
of Deviled Eggs with Wasabi, Straight up and Dill Relish
flavorings

DH said, "why are you making food to take to an Open House party?"

That's just what I do
We were one of first guests to arrive, and as others came,
I saw each of the ladies as well brought a little something,
(I guess it's a generational thing)

so there!
