a new year’s feast, Day 1

10:08 AM Just got home from work. Was at the grocery store to get what I need for my 2012 New Year’s Feast.

The menu for my feast is:

Braised Mustard Greens/Broccoli Rabe with Garlic

Potatoes with Peppers and Chorizo

Bacalao Guisado


Dulce de Leche Flan

Am also cleaning and tidying my house for the Brand New Year. Am starting today.

I am off from work today and Monday next week, so got lots of time to prepare for the First day of 2012 and a day to rest from all the preparations.

11:50 AM I think I will make the Potatoes with Peppers and Chorizo sometime today.

The salted fish (uga) is in a bowl of water; I need it soaking to get some of the salt off–8 hours & change water about 3 times.

Kitchen is all spiffy. Living room and foyer next.
