But we DID have crab legs for dinner. My brother mentioned they were having crab legs, and I thought, "hmmmm... how long HAS it been since I've had crab legs, which I love like NO OTHER FOOD!!!?" I mentioned it to P. and he said "Well, you know, we can always buy them and have them for dinner." Sheer genius! Yes, he was right! So we did.
Tropical Salad with Honey-Lime Vinaigrette
Steamed Crab Legs
Asparagus and Pancetta-Stuffed Baked Potatoes
For the side, I've been really digging stuffing baked potatoes with green veggies. It lets me get my potato fix without tons of fat. Last night I opted for asparagus accented with some chunks of good pancetta.
We enjoyed our New Year's Eve feast immensely, wounds from the crab legs notwithstanding. (Those little effers are SHARP!) Along with a little champagne, it was a good way to end an otherwise lacklustre year. Here's to a much-improved 2010.
Cheers and Happy New Year, peeps!
