My resolution this year is to blog more, blah blah blah... yada yada. To kick start that, here is our New Year's Eve feast as prepared by Lauren. Homemade Cocktail Sauce: Ketchup, Horseradish, (maybe Lemon Juice?) Shrimp: Peeled, De-veined, cooked in a Shrimp Boil with Garlic, Onions, Spices, etc. Then chilled and dried in the fridge between paper towels. Cannelloni Bean Salad: Cannelloni Beans, Olive Oil, Crushed Red Pepper, Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic, maybe a few other things. Crackers Baked Brie, Puff Pastry rolled out, insert Brie cubes Raspberry Preserves (or any fruit or jam here), and Walnuts (or any nuts, shaved almonds also work well). Fold up, Brush with Egg Wash, use a small piece of puff pastry for the bow decoration and bake.
Serve with Chilled Champagne and Pomegranate seeds. Great New Year's Eve!
