Today I had a New Year's Day party. We had vegetable soup, winter greens salad (which I made up and was amazing!), black eyed pea salad, veggies, fruit, nuts, chips, and 5 kinds of chocolatey dessert (my friends know me so well). So some healthy, some not so healthy.

Rack of lamb, oven roasted broccoli, coarse grain mustard mashed potatoes, and Mexican chocolate mousse for dessert.

home made chicken noodle soup. After all, DH is dying  ::) his temp is up a whole degree, and he has a sore throat. Poor baby. Though I would probably have more sympathy for him if I hadn't been sick since Thanksgiving. Flu, then strep, then bronchitis.

I might have eaten the quarter of Mom's homemade pumpkin pie that I had left from Christmas for dinner - what?  It was going to go bad if I didn't eat it!  Stop looking at me like that!  >:D

that actually sounds really good. I think I'll add a jar of tomatoes I canned this summer to make it just a little different for when we eat it again tomorrow :)

I make a chicken tortilla soup, which is basic chicken soup with a little seasoning added, and instead of noodles you add tortilla strips when it is served.

Shrimp and grits for dinner tonight.

Snowed in today - so I am baking a ham, potatoes au gratin, green beans and brussels.  I might get fancy with the brussels.....

I've got a few ways I've become obsessed with cooking brussel sprouts. I like to slice them in half and toss them with olive oil, salt, pepper and cornmeal then roast them. Also, I like to shave them thin and toss with Caesar salad dressing, croutons and parmesan. Anyways, I'd love to hear how you make them.

My dinner is leftover Chinese food from New Year's Eve: steamed broccoli and tofu over vegetable fried rice.

Trader Joe's low sodium butternut squash soup was far too sweet for my taste,  so this time I doctored it with some chunks of butternut, raw minced garlic, sage, and paprika. Plus a bit of leftover black bean empanada filling thinned out with salsa, served with tortilla chips.
