Well I was expecting friends for dinner but that got cancelled due to flu on both sides (I'm on the tail end of it thank goodness). I had already thawed shrimp and pork tenderloin so had to cook them. Had a large portion of Gambas al Ajillo for supper over a little rice, and will be having the same today since it has to be et! The pork tenderloin went in the slow cooker and has not even been tasted yet....
This year I've been gifted some amazing wines from all sides. I had a second bottle of the J Lohr Paso Robles cabernet which was pretty awesome to wash down my tasty shrimp. Still on the shelf is an Anciano tempranillo ten year old Spanish red, and a Chateauneuf du Pape (crazy expensive wine these days but an old favorite from back when... just love it!). That'll have to wait for flus to get better and blizzards to subside/be shoveled out.
Hope everyone enjoyed their last meal/first meal of the year and be well nourished in the year ahead.

Hominy looks fantastic. Good choice on the soup.

Made giant tamales and a Peruvian green sauce to top at the table.

Three different beans soaking for today...not sure how I'll use them.

That looks fantastic.
Going to pressure cooker some gizzards and put them in and save some to fry.
Might even consider some beef sweet breads too.
Sounds disgusting to some I know but it is traditional and I was raised on them.
Here it is so far.
Lots of pre made chili powder and ancho powder with extra cumin.

This soup is turning out amazing.
I have no idea why I never thought about using beef sweetbreads before.
Added hot smoked Spanish paprika whole chili arbol and garlic powder.
This is NOT anything you will find in any Text Mex restaurant.

I just wish my camera or something didn't wash out the bright red color it is.

Well, breakfast was so good and we ate so much that brunch has officially voted to be about two hours later than originally planned. This decision was made by unanimous agreement. I am curled up on the couch with my first "martoonie" of the day. I'll start cooking again in a couple hours. I always try to do the cooking on New Year's Day as a thank you and acknowledgement to my wife for her hard work thruout the year. Actually, I try to do the cooking as often as I can pry her hands off the stove. Yes, she's very dedicated.

Sounds good Ted I haven't had anything to eat or drink all day but testing stuff.
Been fooling with this darn soup.
Just put chopped tender gizzards in from the pressure cooker along with all the broth.

Oakley, what is your side veg/salad that is so colorful? The colors are simply beautiful. And that nice micro green salad, yum!

The sweetbreads and gizzards are swimming in hot fat as we speak and I was finally able to have a drink after running some errands.
Cant wait to eat.
A very cheap but tasty New Years dinner.

Rather bizarre New Years meal but it was good.
Wishing all well in 2019.

Mum & I gorged ourselves on potato chips with our traditional cucumber dip for lunch. In order to counteract that unhealthy lunch, for supper we had carrots & yogurt.

DH has a sinus & lung infection; couldn't join us.

NYE Dinner was a no-brainer. Have a loyalty card at the local pub that amounts to 5% back on purchases. Always have NYE Dinner & drinks free there each year with much left over. I had a deliciously tender Prime Rib, with a crab cake as an appetizer, Caesar salad and soup with a chocolate volcano cake for dessert. The DW2b had the same with a shrimp cocktail appetizer and the 9oz lobster tail as the entrée. The 1st lobster was mushy, sent it back - the 2nd was perfect (happens with frozen seafood sometimes). We'll spend the balance of the leftover loyalty-bucks this month and start all over again. Rinse & repeat for next year.
They had a duo with electronic drums, keyboard, etc that started to play at around 8:30p ... I insisted we leave once they came on (horrid, like a Holiday Inn lounge band).
