a new year's feast

Chef Jeff and I have a tradition of trying different things for our Christmas dinner. Last year we made this fabulous lamb. It was divine!

Since we didn't have Christmas at our house this year, we decided to do a New Year's feast. The whole reason was because Chef Jeff wanted to cook a goose.

Chef Jeff did most of the cooking. He went all out and had a blast. A goose has reddish meat and is really greasy. Jeff had to baste it lots of times. He looked at several recipes and just put together his own, so I don't have a recipe to share.

We also had these yummy steamed veggies. I used fresh green beans and yellow squash and steamed them in my rice cooker with lemon pepper seasoning. Simple and delicious.

Chef Jeff couldn't let such fancy goose fat and grease go to waste so he used it to bake these potatoes. Sounds nasty, but they were OH SO GOOD!

Chef Jeff stuffed the goose with a quinoa hazel nut stuffing. It had celery, onions, and zucchini in it. I think he just made it up too. He's amazing like that.

So there you have it, a month after the fact and without any real recipes, but I hope it was fun to see and maybe you got some inspiration for next year.
