2012 New Year's Eve Dinner

New Year's Eve, of course alone again.
Even though I'm not in a good mood (got hurt badly by someone AGAIN), but well, still have to cheer myself up, so cooking a fancy dinner is a good way. And my new year's resolution is definitely going to do my best to loose at least 10 lbs ( my goal is 15 lbs!!). After this meal, I will go crazy to make it happen!!

This is my whole New Year's Eve dinner.

Caprese Salad.

Fish Fillet with Lemon Herb Mushroom Sauce.


This was my first time to make this dessert, I really think I should have beaten more (I didn't use the machine, I used my hand!!), and baked longer. I'll try it again next time. (wait, didn't I just say I'm trying to loose weight??)

Now I'm drinking my strawberry wine, trying to have a good sleep after that~~~

Happy New Year to everyone!

2012 Christmas Eve Dinner

Got up at 3:50am today. Thanks to my friend who texted me to say "Merry Christmas" so early...... Seriously, I know you guys love me, but we are in different time zones!!!

One of my patients (yes, I work today too, oh, tomorrow as well) told me that she went to the Christmas Tree Lane with her family last night, she said it's so beautiful, so if I don't have other plans, then I should just go. So I decided to have my dinner earlier (well, it's good for me, since I had my breakfast around 5am...... Again, thanks to my friend who woke me up...=_=|||), then go to see the lights!

So let's see my Christmas Eve dinner this year! (of course they were made by myself.)

Bread. not made by myself... but I cut it!! LOL. I got this from the store, it tastes really similar as the bread I love a lot in the Cheesecake Factory.

 Onion Soup. Just got this onion soup bakeware from Crate&Barrel. It's clearance!! Soooo happy!!

 Scallops with Pea Puree and Pimento Cream Sauce (decorated with bacon and green onion).

I made cream brûlée as well, but it was not pretty enough, so I didn't take a picture of it. I'm going to buy a torch!!!!!!

I guess my new year's gift for myself will probably be a torch. Wow, I really need a huge kitchen!
