Old Year/New Year

Still eating on the daily...taking photos? not so much, Xmas and New Years came and went and its now frozen tundra weather. I think we had snow fall at least once a week here in NYC and its kinda awesome since we only get hit like 3-5 times a winter... Anyway I have some pics from Xmas till now.
In all the years of living in NYC I never bought a Christmas Tree. With Elska living with us, She got us all whipped up in thee good O'l Spirit....I had no idea Christmas was from Australia, Who knew?
We had a few people over for dinner this past Christmas evening, for food, relaxation and bone throwing.
This was Yuri's first Christmas and first winter in the good O'l USofA its awesome to see someone experience things that you are used to your whole life, it gives new perspectives on things....
I made a Rib Roast again... Maybe this will be tradition? it sure was yummy....I forgot to take pictures of the whole spread...but it was a really nice pot luck from all of our guests...
With the left overs we made congee with the bones...so good cooked down goodness.
Ive been making this kinda like Chicken stew/Cacciatore.I debone the chicken cook the bones for stock, light flower the chicken brown that add onions, garlic, mushrooms, bay leaf and fresh herbs, add new stock, boil for a bit then a can of diced tomatos and capers let that stew down and boom over rice.
Fay has been coming home with meats that we normally dont cook and asks to make something. This was a pork tenderloin, just rubbed with seasonings, seared and roasted in the oven. Served with some mustard and horse raddish.
New Years Of Course! a really nice bottle of Rose´ to ring in the 2011 + a great time at Max Fish = a nice way to end 2010.

 And no I have not been eating Prince....but god damn this was fucking fun. New posts to follow Happy New Year!
