For New Year's Eve dinner have sweet sausages with peppers and onions on hoagie rolls with some salad on the side (macaroni or potato).

New Year's Day dinner is a standing pork roast with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

New Year's Day means Oyster Stew. I love the stuff. I don't know why we don't make it more often. New Year's Day is about the only time we ever have it.

hey Steve, can we get the recipe for that oyster stew?

i promised the family that i'd take them into the city to see the tree in rockefeller center, do some shopping, show my boy my office at work, then go out for dinner.
so, we'll brave the city traffic and crazed, hung over toutists on new year's day, then either go out to dinner here: Puttanesca,Italian Restaurant in New York City

or here: Seafood Restaurant NYC & Upper West Side Restaurant | Ocean Grill
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

We have a bunch of gourmet goodies -- a friend who visits from France always brings us cans of pate, we keep the cheese drawer full of our favorites, especially local artisinal cheeses (we live in dairy-land), I have several jars of marinaded veggies (mushrooms, asparagus, artichoke hearts). So when the mood strikes us, we're going to lounge around and munch rather than do sit-down.

We had planned to stay home tonight, but dear friends invited us over for dinner, so we'll do that. We are all just returning from Christmas with family, so it'll be good to catchup with them.

Tomorrow, who knows?

Ham for sure. Not sure about my sides yet. Maybe Mac and cheese, rolls, some kind of veggie.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Well due to popular demand:

The roast and Yorkshire pudding stay, but the potatoes are escalloped au gratin, the spinach is creamed, there will be roasted tomatoes, and the jus has become Cabernet mushroom sauce. luckily a lot is make this morning and stick in tonight :)

Happy New Year all, diets to follow
