NYE Wrap-Up

A successful dinner party...

It was much easier to cook the lobster tails than I had expected. I first "piggy backed" them, a few hours before our guests arrived. Later, I brushed the tails with a mixture of melted butter, paprika, garlic powder, and white pepper while baking at 400 degrees. I served it with lemon wedges and some of the above sauce. I would use this method again, but I would also try broiling to get the tops a little color. They tasted great.

I loved the mac and cheese. A total hit. I didn't take a photo, whoops.

I also loved the salad dressing, separate post to come.

The only thing that was so-so was the chocolate mousse, but then again I am not a huge fan of desserts anyway. We were also pretty full.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2009!
