Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  Wow, 2010?  That's pretty crazy.  This year went by so quickly and so many great things happened.  I wanna get to that, but first I've been having some pretty amazing food over the past couple of days.

Yesterday for lunch I made a BLT, with real bacon, which I've never done before.  And it was quite yummy.

I should also mention that I've been having a major downfall to these almond biscotti.  I hope they disappear soon (which means I just need to eat them faster!).

Since we had to have a pretty lowkey night last night, we decided to make it awesome with food.  We started off with some steamed shrimp from the grocery store.

I thought their texture was kinda funky, but G didn;t have a problem with them.  But the main event was food from Trinacria.

Right here we're looking at cheese lasagna, a couple of meatballs, some garlic bread and some asparagus that I made.  YUM.  I want to live inside of that place.

I also wanted to make a special dessert and tried for molten lava cakes, but they didn't bake right.

Still tasted good, though!  I think I just needed to leave them in longer.  I've made them successfully before with a different recipe, so maybe next time.

This morning I made us a new year's breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, and 1/2 english muffin.

For lunch it was more leftover lasagna and an apple.

Man, I really want to try everything that that market sells.

I also made some banana muffins and I just finished snacking on one.

I'm making a couple of recipes from my new cook books tonight!  I'm really excited!  Don't forget to eat your black-eyed peas on New Year's day!

  1. My family does our Christmas party on New Year Day :) I love it because it spreads out the festivities and I get to see my whole mom's side.

    This year, I also started a new tradition of running a 5k on New Year Day!
