December 28th

We had dinner at the Tavern at Lark Creek on December 28th. We did almost the same thing in 2010 on December 29th. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f484...-36810-39.html

We both had:

roasted pear and goat cheese salad, butter lettuce, lavender honey glazed almonds, huckleberry vinaigrette
pappardelle with lamb bolognese (split)
short ribs on a bed of creamy polenta, with mushrooms and winter root vegetables, topped with mizuna
butterscotch pudding with chocolate chip and sugar cookies

How to make sauerkraut

Here's an informative guide to making sauerkraut. The recipes in it are basic and I jazzed up my first batch with 4 jalapeno chiles sliced thin to make some hot kraut (could have used more). The trick about using a freezer bag filled with brine to seal off the kraut while it's fermenting works well - I didn't have any bloom develop on the top at all.

We jumped the gun a bit and had the Black eyed Peas and Collard Greens for dinner, Nice meatloaf and red skin potatoes as well. Happy New Year to one and all. May your year be filled with great adventure and lots of camping.

New Year's Eve

We had an early dinner on New Year's Eve at Blowfish Sushi. http://www.blowfishsushi.com/blowfishsf_dinner.pdf

We started with the Ritsu Roll - maguro, bincyo, avocado, masago fl ash fried & served with citrus ponzu.

Then we had the pork belly, with braised daikon radish garnish with asian pear brunoise (that just means teeny tiny cubes of asian pears) and micro daikon greens.

Next up, lobster maki, topped with beef tenderloin and micro greens with a swipe of wasabi mascarpone cream.

We ended with with unagi (eel), hamachi (yellow tail) and saba (mackerel) nigiri.

We didn't have dessert, but included an image below of a really pretty confection that we had on another visit earlier in the year; Japanese cheesecake (which is not as creamy, more cakey than traditional cheesecake) with ube (purple yam) ice cream, cookie tuile and cotton candy.

Home by ten o'clock to turn on all the lights and open up all the windows and doors to greet the new year. Twelve grapes for each of us a few minutes after midnight 'cause we forgot about them after our little midnight kiss.

We hope everyone had a great new year's eve.

Yhottys. You really enjoy a great variety of foods. I am a pretty big foody person, but many of the things you post I've never heard of. You are expanding my culinary exploriations. Thank you for that. Plus , being in SF and eating out as you seem to do, have a large dining out budget. Keep all your meals coming, I have to look several up to see exactly what they are. Love it. s

Sempi,

Thank you for your kind words. We both are fortunate to be living in the Bay Area and grateful for the ability to dine at some great restaurants.

Thank you as well for posting your meals. We love "hearing" about what everyone's having for dinner.

We'll look forward to more of your posts.

All the best,

New Year's Day

We had dinner in Alamo with Gemma's family on New Year's day.

So, if you haven't already figured out that Filipino and Hawaiian people like to serve a lot of food when they get together, we've got another example for you. (Plus, it was New Years Day, so spending the day with family and having plenty to eat is meant to set the tone for the rest of the year.)

This time Gemma did a lot of cooking. Murray did a lot of prepping - he's a wiz with a knife, if we do say so ourselves.

Gemma made:

-Black eyed peas with ham hocks and ham shanks. We were going to serve it with Murray's creamy cornbread, made with cream, fresh corn and poblano chiles but we didn't have any cornmeal so we went another route. We had black eyed peas Brazilian/Feijoada style. http://www.saveur.com/article/Travels/Beans-and-Meat Which means we served orange slices and deep fried julienned collard greens. Big hit with the family. We think it was because of the deep fried collards. (Images of the collard greens before and after being fried.)

-Arroz Caldo, chicken and rice soup, but this time we made the "soup" much thicker and browned the chicken, so it was almost like risotto.

-Pancit, by now most of the folks that who this thread know what that is. Bean thread noodles with sauteed carrots, celery, onions, cabbage, lop cheon (Chinese pork sausage), kamakobo (Japanese fish cake) and shrimp balls.

Murray made roasted pears with goat cheese, similar to what we had at the Tavern at Lark Creek a few nights before. Big hit too. (Image of the pears and goat cheese before they were roasted.)

He also grilled these gigantic portobello mushrooms that he had marinated in balsamic vinegar and shallots. Another big hit.

We started the evening with a fruit and cheese plate, with the same yummy truffle triple cream cheese that we had for Christmas. There was also a sundried tomato, pesto and cheese terrine.

Also on the table was roasted turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry chutney, roasted winter vegetables and jai (it's a Chinese vegetarian dish wit noodles traditionally served on Chinese lunar new year, but they thought, "What the hay?" and served it up.)

Dessert was a strawberry ice cream cake with fresh strawberries and caramel sauce.

Hi Sempi! Oh, there was rice. It's kind of a given. Unless we say, "potatoes" or "grits" or "no rice", there's rice.

Happy New Year!

Your friends,
