New Years is mine as its' my birthday so it's prime rib crusted with panko,parsley salt and pepper, garlic mashed potatoes, a spinache and arugula saldad with candied walnuts and either pears or apples, artichokes with parsley and garlic. Hot rolls and deserts.

As mentioned before, I pick out a cookbook, preferably a new one from another Country/Culture. I "read" the cookbook and pick out what sounds to me like a 6-7 course meal. From Apps to dessert.

I then shop for all the shelf stable ingredients at least a month before and slowly build up from there. Then I spend a couple of days prepping. On the day in question, I put it all together.

It's about time for me to pick out a cookbook...

We always have a green salad with my husband's "garlic dressing of doom". It's a green goddess dressing with extra garlic. We also use it as dip for crudités. It's very popular.

Time to give this a bump. I'm thinking some of you are planning for your Thanksgiving about now. I'd love to see some more feasts.
