Happy New Year!
It's hard to believe that another whole year has passed. All kinds of interesting things happened in 2008, and I'm excited to see what 2009 will bring - I wish you all a Happy New Year (from my winter wonderland) full of wonderful surprises! Have you made your resolutions yet?? Things have been busy around here, but I plan on writing my list within the next few days.
For New Years day, I had a few close friends over for lunch. I made a starter of fresh salsa and guacamole layered in a martini glass with a bit of shredded lettuce in the bottom. They dipped shrimp and crackers into theirs, while I went for celery sticks. A basic salad of mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, sunflower seeds, and different dressings went with the main course, which was cooked - not bothering to make myself anything separate, I went for 2 helpings of salad 😉
As dessert it always in order at my house, I went for Sweet Gratitude's turtle pecan cheesecake - guess I didn't get enough at Carmi's. It really is great, and my marbling turned out better this time, creating a more even combo of vanilla and chocolate in each piece. As you can see, I omitted the chopped pecans around the side of the cake - I wanted some white. It was definately a hit with my friends! Yum Yum!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and best of luck with those rawsolutions!
