A couple days ago my wonderful wife came home from Costco with some food we don’t often eat around here–including a couple of Lobster Tails! So we decided that New Year’s Eve dinner would be a bit fancier than the normal fare around here.
Picture here. (Yes, playing with Tumblr more).
Side dishes were mixed brown rice and green beans with slivered almonds and small tomatoes. Overall it was VERY tasty. One of of the tails didn’t quite cook all the way through on the first try and we managed to smoke up the house a bit, but it was still well worth the effort.
For a final dose of evil, we made Chocolate Lava Cakes for desert a few hours later, using the recipe in the little book that came with the Kitchen Aid mixer. To top it I made a fresh raspberry syrup using some raspberries, corn syrup, sugar, and a tiny bit of water.
We usually don’t cook this much and this richly, but it was a good way to ring in the new year.
