NYE Family Dinner - Steak Party

It's time to be Thankful for what we had in 2013 and to cherish the a new excitement on 2014.

We didn't go anywhere to Celebrate New Year's Eve, so I made a Family Dinner for 4 of us. Oh yes, we're expecting another baby this 2014 that's why we're very blessed and so excited.

We planned to have Steaks night complete with salad (minus dessert).

Start with Fruit Salad: Mixed of Grapes, Apples, Pineapples and Strawberries. Mixed with dressing: mayonnaise, lemon zest, a bit of milk (sweetened) and grated cheese.

Mixed Veggies from Asparagus, Baby Carrots, Baby Potatoes. Baked them with drizzled of Olive oil, rosemary, black pepper and sea salts.
Main Course: Rib Eye Steak and Sirloin Steak. Somehow I pan fried them a bit too long so it's too well done. Oh well, since I only cannot eat rare/medium steak so it's fine. I only marinated them with garlic powder, black pepper, italian herbs, sea salts and butter for only half an hour. And then cook in a pan with a bit of Olive oil.

Also made French Fries for the big boy.
I made a wasabi mashed potato. It's just a usual mashed potato with added wasabi on it. Not too much though.. only to get the taste of it. Surprisingly Wasabi goes really well with mashed potato.

Since I didn't make a dessert, so I made a refreshing drink to complete the after taste, a fresh Lemonade with Soda.

Totally full and happy tummy! And now we're waiting for the count down.

3..2..1.. Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2013, You've been awesome to us and Hello 2014
We're excited to see you :D
