Happy New Year!!!!! 2012

Today is New years day.   I've been disassembling the Christmas tree and everything that goes alone with that. reorganizing the storage room. Cleaning the house. Bathing and waking the dogs.  Getting myself cleaned up for company tonight.  I'm not cooking tonight so i thought i would just post some old food pictures from the past few months.  I'm sure as time goes on the pictures will get better.  I'm gonna try to do more step by step pictures.   

We'll begin with dessert!! 
 Flourless chocolate cake i made for Chanukah.  
Kind of like a soufflé, it rises.
and then ends up an inch thick. 

I made some ganache for the top.
I had extra so i made some chocolate covered strawberries.

Pot roast with portobella mushrooms.

This was my mock Thanksgiving chicken dinner.
Mashed potatoes, green beans, and cinnamon rolls. 

I think this was for the first cold snap that we had back in November.
Hungarian Goulash. 
Lots of Smokey paprika and tomato paste.

Bacon wrapped meatloaf.

I use a combo of ground chicken and ground turkey in my meatloaf.
spinach, diced tomatoes and smoked gouda.

I found this at B.j.'s and it inspired a stuffed pork loin.

Brushed with a mustard sauce and slices of ham and cheese were folded up and inserted into vertical slits, all tied up and seared.
Served with roasted potatoes and green beans.

corned beef with yellow potatoes and carrots.
