Nice picture. The healthy omelette I'm planning for dinner (using extra egg whites after egg nog making...yum) won't look nearly as colorful as this!

I'll be making pizza. The dough is thawing and I have the toppings all ready to go. I'll put it together in about an hour. I'll also chop up some lettuce for salads and we have lots of cookies and candies left from Christmas for dessert.

That looks delectable PPO...I love lamb, and you've cooked it perfectly! We barbequed two partly boneless legs of lamb for Christmas dinner. I'd never seen them like that before. They looked like two large chicken thighs, and they were delicious.

I have two thick Rib Eye steaks to put on the barby later. We'll have some southern greens cooked with salt pork in honor of my Mom who always said I had to have southern greens on NY Day so I'd always have green folding money. I don't really believe in that superstition, but I always do it anyway just because she insisted.
We'll also have good ole garlic toast, made with MsM's recipe for garlic butter.

Happy New Year Everyone!!
May all of you have the best year of your lives!

Today is the day you all have been looking towards, the last week of PPPC.
I will be having another culinary delight from the city of Pittsburgh!

Prime rib, mushroom bread pudding, creamed greens and I haven't decided on the carrot preparation yet.

Thanks, that is the way that I like it cooked. Just warm it up in the middle.

I have never seen those either. I have bought boneless leg of lamb before and I like cooking it. But today I went all out. The lamb was marinated in a paste of flat leaf parsley, cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.

Sounds good, PPO. Our lamb was marinated overnight in fine chopped fresh mint, grated garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and Madeira wine
