Our 2005 New Year’s Day dinner

January 6th, 2005 · No Comments




New Year’s Day dinner menu included:

  • Peking Duck (marinated overnight in local Hood Canal Brewery Agate Pass Amber)
  • Stir-Fried Broccoli
  • Rice
  • Almond Jelly, Lychees and Fortune Cookies
  • Asian Pear Wine


  • One college friend gave me the Peking Duck recipe years ago, and another provided the Almond Jelly recipe when we were living in RI. Thanks Y and E for the friendship and memories through the years!
  • I became curious to try the Asian Pear wine after reading the article Enoch Choi linked in his del.icio.us feed (this feed is recommended reading!). Article quote: From Washington state, AP Wine makes a unique wine from Asian pears and gives all its profits to affordable housing in the islands.. Website link: The story of AP Windfall Winery.
  • Elisabeth said fortune cookie for the first time, requesting her treat, and she said it well. This time I bought the cookies, rather than trying to make them myself. My two fortunes were Your lover will be true to you (okay, I traded Abigail for hers) and You will be admired for your internal beauty….not a bad way to begin a new year! 😉

    Sorry to have missed Lisa and family’s Tuesday Night Family Dinner: Welcoming the New Year with Dim Sum: yum!
