New Year's 2011

Welcome to our New Year's Eve feast!  We celebrated with 6 friends and practiced our culinary skills.  It was wonderful to be cooking together - something Andy and I love to do!  The table was set and New Year's Eve day was bright and sunny.

The menu:

Broiled Mussels with Herb Butter Sauce
Field Greens with Red Beets and Lemon Honey Dressing in a Parmesan Basket
**Willakenzie Pinot Blanc

**Cameron Pinot Noir & Alloro Pinot Noir

Cranberry Pomegranate Sorbet with Orange Zest and Pomegranate Seeds

Coffee Rubbed Beef, Farro Noodles with Crimini Mushrooms and Dried Cherries
Butter Steamed Baby Carrots
**Adelsheim Syrah

Dessert Trio: Pecan Tart, Rogue River Bleu Cheese, Honest Chocolates Chocolate Caramel with Sea Salt
**Arborbrook Semillon Sydney
Midnight came and 2011 began

For New Year's breakfast, we featured a meal inspired by my family's heritage - crepes from my Great Aunt's recipe - but with a Northwest flair:

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Zest

Salmon Egg Crepes with Mango Salsa, Crema and Avocado
**Caffe Venezia by Baccellieri

It was a great start to a hopeful and exciting year for us!
