I resolve not to make resolutions! That's it, just do the best you can each day, and that way you don't feel guilty when you don't keep them.
New Year's Day breakfast was thin pancakes filled with fresh strawberries and rolled up. A little whipped cream on top. I used my Lenox Tartan, someone asked the name of the pattern.
They may show up in a scape yet as I didn't get to use them over the holidays. Winter fruits and ribbon, I think they could pass!
I bought son and dil the Lenox Holiday pattern this year for Cmas. 14 dinner plates. Then I got them salad plates after Cmas on sale. They will be all set for next year.
I bought myself 4 dinners and 4 salads too, as the price was great at the Lenox Outlet and I had an extra 20 % off, so Merry Christmas to me. :)
I felt the need to create after being sick for a few days. I had an eggplant to cook, so I made Chicken, Eggplant and Spinach stacks, topped with a fresh Mozzarella ball.
The spinach round was chopped spinach, all water squeezed out, onions, s and p, garlic, ricotta and mozzarella. I baked it in a ramekin to make the patty shape.
I served it over some linguine tossed in evoo, some of the spinach cheese mixture and some chopped tomatoes for color. Shaved Locatelli cheese to finish it off.
Hope this second day of the new year finds you well.
A few more days of enjoying my festive kitchen chandy, and then it is back to Blah uary.
Every thing looks so bare when the decos come down, have to wait a few more weeks to put out the ♥♥♥ things. Home Goods have had theirs out since 2 weeks before Cmas! Like elementary school teachers, many bloggers move from one Holiday to the next. This year we can add in Kangaroos for Leap Year. We should get a KICK out of that! :)
Joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday.
