New Year’s Eve Dinner: Surf & Turf

For NYE, I wanted to make a special dinner for us. Going to a restaurant is usually total chaos and the menu is inflated by 50%.  So while Markel and I played at home all day, I cooked up a romantic meal for 2.


Surf: Shrimp Cocktail

Not as fancy as lobster, but I LOVE shrimp cocktails.  Not sure what it is, but I’m obsessed with it.  I bought Porterhouse Steaks (put a seasoned rub on both sides) and made Garlic Mashed Potatoes on the side.


Kale & Broccoli Salad with Lemon Poppy seed Dressing with nuts and dried cranberries.  Bought this premade salad kit from Costco.  It’s my favorite thing ever!  Only $5 and serves about 4-5 people.

We were pretty busy rushing around getting ready, tiring Lucy out so she could go to sleep in her crate, and doing Lucy’s 100 day celebration (post to come)~ so we had to do without candles, a pretty table cloth, and all things fanshy. hehe
