New Years Thoughts and Recipe Idea

Did you have a nice New Years? We have a family tradition of serving Fon Du on New Years Eve. No, not cheese or chocolate, but with meat. I think of my parents every year when serving this. For those who are unfamiliar, try this once and you will be hooked.

Use peanut oil in your Fon Du pot. Cut up a London Broil steak into bit size chunks. You then cook your meat in the hot oil and then have the following ready for dipping once your meat is ready.
1. Chopped peanuts.
2. Hollandaise Sauce
3. Chopped Scallions (optional)

You can also cook shrimp or chicken and add sauces to fit these, but the main stay is the meat dipped in the chopped peanuts and hollandaise sauce. Nothing beats this flavor combination. My folks used to serve a Caesar Salad with this and some good french bread. Whatever you do, make sure you serve something to soak up the oil you will get into your system or you will pay the next day. Keep a little extra hollandaise sauce for the next day to serve over eggs. Almost like “hair of the dog”, but more enjoyable.

Did you make any resolutions? If so, I hope you can keep them. Too many people make resolutions that are too hard to attain and get discouraged quickly. My wife and I are going to try harder to be on the same page when it comes to our children. We are a blended family with five children and they like to play divide and conquer. We have vowed to be on the same team this year and not let them take advantage of us. In other news, my step daughter is planning on getting married later this year. We are very proud of her and look forward to her big day.

If I read again that someone is looking forward to a new President this year, I may get sick. They somehow think they are going to get something better. Let’s just say I would be surprised if that happened. The choices look slim to bad and I am really not looking forward to the change. It can get a lot worse folks, and just might, so be prepared.
