I HERE!! I'M HERE!! HONEST! Just soo busy!
Right now I'm cooking up a STORM. We are having another couple over tomorrow night for NEW YEARS, and I want to be ready!

This is my "menu"...lots of finger foods...
Tell me what you think!
Lumpia, which are Filipino egg rolls,

Puff pastry stuffed with :
smoked oysters and goat cheddar
Prosciutto and Parmesan Cheese
Almond stuffed Olives

Filo wrapped fig and goat feta
Portabello mushrooms marinaded in balsamic vinegar and oregano grilled with goat feta

Lamb Curry served with bread and then

a Chocolate Roll filled with strawberry gelato, covered in chocolate then just before serving, covered with in meringue, baked then light on fire. (Like a Baked Alaska - different shape, more layers),
and of course booze: We have lots bottles of red wine, some harder stuff, (I doubt that we'll get into that) and Champagne for the midnight toast.

I bought some non-alcoholic stuff for the girls! You know what is funny, my girls will eat everything I put out, so I have to make enough not just for the adults but for the kiddies too. God forbid that they go for the cheap chips and dip!! ohhh nooooo!!! The portabello mushrooms are a favorite of the kids, and I spent a FORTUNE and bought every last one at the market on Saturday! LOL

I think it will be a lot of fun! I am looking forward to just relaxing, drinking, eating and laughing!

I have lots of pictures of Christmas that I'll post later in the week!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
