We are staying home tonight. To celebrate we will cook a few of our favorite things in small amounts. Sort of a tasting menu starting with six oysters, broiled with a topping of parmesan and bread crumbs. Nancy likes to add a little wilted spinach. I'll eat one raw just to prove I can.
Next a few cold shrimp with cocktail sauce . We have an avocado salad (avocado, tomato and scallions) and a fresh baguette. Meanwhile meat is roasting in the oven.
It is a small rack of lamb, just 4 chops, but a big taste. The rack is coated in a mix of mustard and olive oil and then rolled in seasoned bread crumbs. The rack is roasted in a hot oven for about 20 minutes.
Add one bottle of cold American champagne and that's my celebration.
I appreciate all of you and hope each and every one has a safe New Year's Eve.
