What's the first thing you ate/cooked in 2010?

...aside from a few (too many) post 12AM glasses of bubbly, mine was a pork roll, egg and cheese sandwich on toasted english muffin & cold lemon Gatorade. So much for resolutions! (Is there an award for being the 1st to break?!?!)

  1. Biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs with cream cheese and sauteed onion, and clementines. Seeing it in print is a bit startling.

      Startlingly delicious that is. :)

        Boy, you're so right. Today I had yogurt, clementines, and almonds thanks to goodhealthgourmet's good influence. It was delicious, to be sure, but that Friday morning breakfast was awfully satisfying.

    2. Let's see, collard greens and white bean soup which is a point on the healthy side, but dinner tonight at the in-laws will be a seafood fest with few vegs in sight and much desserts so I guess this balances out.

      1. goat's milk yogurt with blackberries and flax seed.

        yeah, yeah, i know :)

          Alright, I'm inspired. I have yogurt, nuts, and fruit in the house. Tomorrow I'll start the day that way. Thanks, ghg.

          1. re: fern

            glad i could inspire you! speaking of nuts, i also had a spoonful of almond butter :)

        2. Slightly uneventful and glamorous, but I made crepes topped with apple jelly and drank a glass of champagne! (I've been saving this jelly for a special treat!)

          And I should of added... I have been scouring all my cookbooks for recipes for brioche and croissants. I've come across several that look pretty good. I've made challah with huge success, so that doesn't seem like it would be out of the question either. I need challenges!
          Oh I feel rejuviated! Happpy New Year!

            chef chicklet, I've made the croissants from "Baking With Julia" a few times with wonderful results (the chocolate croissants disappear as soon as they're out of the oven).

            Breakfast was home made rye bread and coffee, then went on to try a coffee toffee recipe from smittenkitchen - the results of that should be leaving town with friends shortly. So much for their resolutions!

            Wishing a happy, healthy, peaceful new year to all - J

              Oh I'm jealous! I don't have her recipe but think I can find it easy enough, thanks for the heads up. All is good!

              1. re: janeh

                How did the toffee turn out? Do you recommend the recipe?

            2. First thing I ingested: champagne and a cookie.

              First thing I prepared and then ingested: a fried egg (in my brand new omelet pan - thanks, Mom!) over refried beans & queso blanco, topped with salsa and sour cream; a piece of sourdough rye toast with cream cheese; a grapefruit section (healthy!); a glass of V8 and a cup of coffee.

              I do not need to eat again 'til 2011, maybe.

                  Come on over, but bring milk, because I just ran out.

                2. re: small h

                  ooo me too. I love a Mexican meal for breakfast! so jealous, how can I be hungry again?
