Foodie Friday - Simple Food for the New Year

We were on the road after Christmas. Went to visit our grandchildren in New York, and then went to the Sight and Sound theatre in Lancaster to see the Christmas show. Lots of fun, but very tiring, so my husband and I had a small New Year's Eve celebration at home. Minimal cooking was the order of the day, so we bought a few prepared goodies...a round of brie, some cured meats, a jar of taramosalata, and a large loaf of artisan bread.

We followed that up with lobster tails, risotto ala milanese, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce.

For dessert there were chocolate cannoli from one of our favorite Italian stores on Long Island. They package the shells and filling separately, so they don't get soggy. That's a good thing when you drive them a few hundred miles.

I was so lazy that I didn't even take pictures of the dinner. (I also dozed after dinner and never got this post done!) We just sat to table and enjoyed!

Hope all of you had a stress free New Year's Eve, and that 2010 brings you many blessings and much joy...

Please stop Designs by Gollum and say Hi to our hostess, Michael Lee. Bet there's some fancy foods on display this week, and you'll enjoy the array.
