meant to reply to original post:
For NYE a bunch of asian appetizers for a little party for me and H.
vietnamese spring rolls
thai spiced brownies
We'll have tons of leftovers which is OK by me, since that will be our NYD dinner!
We are having a standing rib roast, Yorkshire pudding, and something green or orange. I've got spinach, broccoli, carrots, parsnips, green peppers plus salad fixings in the crisper drawer. I'll have to figure out something creative to do with some of those.
It's just hubby and me, so dinner is simple on holidays.
NYE plans actually fell through this morning so I've been scrambling all day trying to decide on something to cook for myself. Finally decided on baked salmon with a honey soy glaze and a side of soba noodles tossed with peppers in peanut sauce. Will pair with a nice bottle of Rueda I received as a Christmas present. Blood orange sorbet for dessert.
I figure it's a somewhat healthy dinner to balance out the copious amounts of "snacky" food I'll be eating tomorrow and Monday while I watch football for 48 hours straight :)
I'm liking your plans for tomorrow and monday!! I <3 me some football! My Christmas eve and Christmas plans got co-opted by my parents, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc when I had planned to spend it cooking for my family, so NYE is going to be a holiday spent at home with some pasta e olio, cheese from Cato Corner Farm, Raspberry swirl cheese cake, and champagne. I think a nice movie on demand will round out the evening! Here's hoping I stay up late enough to ring in the new year! haha
I decided to splurge this year for new years and made the following:
Slow roasted "Prime Strip" (strip loin roast, roasted super slow at 150, perfect pink end to end)
Smoked Sockeye Salmon platter
U-6 Shrimp Cocktail
Liverwurst French Onion dip.
Yum! What a glorious way to ring in the new year!
