latkes rather than the four or five I intended. I had made some Potato Beet Latkes that were tasty for a pretend Hanukkah dinner when my younger daughter, Sharron was in town.
No photos of the roast beef (studded with garlic, roasted on a bed of thinly sliced onions & thyme, rubbed with powdered mushrooms) or a variation on a Caesar Salad.
Or the broccoli trees - (my attempt to get little boys to eat some greens. Dov, the little one played along for a while, biting off the "leaves" and giving me the stems for my winter forest.... trees that lost their leaves - I later found remnantsof the leaves under a plate!
Chewy No Bake Chocolate Macaroons, best eaten right out of the freezer before they get a chance to melt.
White Bean, Mint & Parmesan Dip. that's perfect for a pre-holiday appetizer for a crowd, or a kick-off-your-shoes, hang-out-chill-on-the-couch kind of day. I should have put it in my pretty red bowl, but, frankly, the dip was finished before I thought about it. My advice, make a double batch!
Rather than make a bunch of resolutions for 2012, I thought I'd at least, try to catch up with some of the latest (and new favorite) recipes and cookbooks. I'm still a little behind with both. That said, I wish you all a joyous, prosperous and healthy 2012. May it bring you all you wish for and then some.
