Going to a friend's place for supper. It will be some sort of Thai pork or roast beast. That's what we call it too, Alix.

We're going to have our New Year's dinner today. Broiled lobster tails (about 1-pound each), drawn butter, Greek salad, steamed green beans, homemade potato rolls, chilled champagne, and bourbon bread pudding with creme anglaise for dessert. Then, the party's over and we're going back to eating civilian food.

That's because you are not sure what beast it is, since it's wearing a parka, too!

We're having potato salad and BBQ ribs. I have to make the ribs in the oven, as it's raining today so can't fire up the grill.

Salmon fillets coated with dill, breadcrumbs, and lemon zest served on a bed of beets, with creamed potatoes with fresh dill, an avocado salad, and peppermint icecream with chocolate sauce for dessert. A fish sauce made of fish stock, splash of white wine, brown mustard seeds, and Swedish anchovies on the side.

I am glad to see that I was not the only one that didn't cook their New Years dinner yesterday. I had Vegetable Beef and Barley Soup. To night I am having Pork Chop, SourKruat over mashed Potatoes and Black Eyed Peas. I haven't decided if I am going to make Alix's Lemon Cake or Babetoo's Scalloped Pineapple.

We've been eating cold cuts and salads since friday evening. Tonight I think it will be french toast for dinner (thats easy to do). I have been taking it easy and my shoulder is feeling better but my ankle is still sore and the hands are taking their time also.
