Happy [lonely] New Year!

This was the first EVER New Years Eve that we were alone as a family. Before you feel too bad for us, it was by choice. After a week of in-laws, parents, brothers with families, late nights and early mornings, colds, runny noses, a nephew with chicken pox, and much more, a quiet evening was on the menu! So was our Moroccan Chicken with Kalamata Olives, Cous Cous and a Greek Salad. This used to be THE meal we would make for guests. A favorite that we have not made it for awhile!

This was on my plate on the last evening of the year 2010: My Moroccan Chicken with Kalamata olives and lemons, Cous Cous, a tossed Greek salad with feta and olives sans onions, and pita bread. Drink: Soda!

What did you do on NYE and what was on your plate?!

  1. We hung out at home and did simple food on NYE, potato gratin with lamb, feta, sun-dried tomatoes, and roasted peppers. Risked our lives to go out and watched fireworks in our neighborhood πŸ™‚ New Year’s Day we had family over for salmon soup with saffron, chili, orange, tomato, zucchini. Carrot cake for dessert. Mmmmm

  2. We had a traditional meal on New Years Day. Collard Greens, Black Eyed Peas, Cabbage, and Ham. The green stuff is for health and the rest is for wealth. πŸ™‚
