New Years Eve

For lunch – a bakery fresh roll blanketed with a creamy horseradish sauce and leftover Christmas ham fried up in the skillet.

Dinner at the Par Lounge, which is part of the San Vicente Inn & Resort.  Literally the closest place to home.  Didn’t want to be out on the roads tonight.  Here is a personal size pizza.

Appetizer sampler thing with potato skins, onion rings, cheese things, and chicken tenders.

I’ve seen a lot of kids menu grilled cheeses, but this is the first I’ve seen a “half” grilled cheese.  How cheap can you be?  Must be gold plated bread…

La Piazza

This is one from earlier this month while I was in New York (Long Island). La Piazza was a standout restaurant. Informal pizza in front and sit down restaurant in back. The was the Spaghetti al Cartoccio. Spaghetti in a sambuca infused pink sauce with sweet italian sausage and shrimp wrapped in foil then baked. One of only a few times that I remarked to myself that this shrimp was succulent and sweet. I don’t say that often. Excellent dinner.
