As usual, we had a really quiet night at home New Years Eve and celebrated with a fantastic gourmet meal. We have never been into a crazy New Years night, so cooking a big meal has always been our thing. Below are a few pictures capturing our good eats. It was great to be close to a gourmet farmers market this year...we went to Granville Island and bought all our seafood from the Lobster Man and produce at one of the local stands. Every bite was so tasty! Menu: Kumamoto Oysters, Rib Eye Steaks brushed in Duck fat from Oyama Sausage, Boiled Lobsters from The Lobster Man, Mushrooms cooked in Duck fat with pancetta, classic baked potato and Nanaimo bars from Laurelle's Bakery. We had cocktails to start, Aaron made Manhattans and with dinner we had one of our favorite wines from Yoakim Bridge that we had been saving. Bon Appetite!!!
Cheers to a Happy 2012! Full of love, laughter, food and success!!! xo
