Happy New Year!

It’s been our tradition to make tempura at least once during the first week of the year. It’s usually a lot of work–for me–which is why I don’t make it more often. I love tempura. I cut up big slices of squash and eggplant and dip them in tempura batter along with mushrooms and snap peas. I add shrimp to appease Greg so he doesn’t think it’s all vegetables.

I designed a new Menu logo for 2017. That should make it easier to distinguish from the old menus (which are now in its own category).

I’d like to try new recipes this year. I’m not much on experimentation when it comes to cooking, but if it’s recommended to me by friends I’ll try it at least once.

For the month of January we are sticking to a strict menu with no eating out…but I’ll tell you more about that on Monday.

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2017 blesses you with what you need most.
