    On New Year’s Day I like to sleep in late and let the champagne wear off… then go to brunch with my girlfriends and gossip about the great night we all had. I don’t know if that’s a tradition or not but I do it every year, so it must be becoming one!

    Kathy, I like to make hangtown fry for a late breakfast – made with local oysters and lots of crisp bacon. Very northwest.

    Hi Bill and Marlene,
    Glad you liked the fruitcakes!

    Happy Holidays,

    New Years is all about the roasted, herb-crusted Leg of Lamb. It’s also time for us to argue with mom about whether to use a meat thermometer. Mom insists on cooking “the old fashioned way” (without), while we argue that we’ve had one too many dry Legs of Lamb and that its time for a thermometer. We cut slits in the lamb and stuff it with lots of garlic, and we make a great sauce of the lamb “jus” combined with our grandma’s mint jelly (YUM!). Of course, New Years is also a day where we HAVE TO serve good ol’ retro clam dip made with canned clams, cream chees, lemon juice and worcestershire sauce..

    Hi Kathy
    If I’m lucky I get to sleep in which is always a plus. But Cooking Black Eye Peas, Collard Greens and Corn bread. I cooked all this at Dish D’lish in the market and made all the kids have at least one bite for Good Lucky in the New Year. I think they all did well. At Calamity Jane’s we will be serving the Good Luck dish the first week of January. What’s your tradition?

    HI Janice – that sounds good! YOu know I love Dim Sum on these holidays – or we also like to do oyster stew — or if just hanging at the house I love to cook up a pot roast in red wine – yum – it makes the house smell soo good!
