As part of foodbuzz's Tastemaker program I recently received some of Paul Newman's products to check out. I was feeling lazy so a lasagna was made using the 'Sockarooni' sauce and we grazed on that for a couple of days, the sauce was used in the lasagna and a plain sauce was served with the portions.
The sauce is good, its hearty and full of flavor. I distributed (gave away) the salad dressings to people that would love them so when I get word back from them I will pass on the info and I still have the alfredo sauce that I am considering using in a very non alfredo way - stay tuned.
Two thousand and ten is right around the corner and in true Chez What/doggybloggy form there will be nothing going on for New Years Eve. I tend to use this night to reflect on the coming year and the year that has passed it is also the anniversary of me moving to New York City. I purposely came to New York on January first so that I would always know exactly how long I have lived here. I moved here in 1985 so do the math. While I may not hit the party scene there are still some traditions that we maintain like eating black eyed peas, and eating twelve grapes in a minute at midnight to symbolize each month of the coming year with the sweetest ones representing months that would be sweeter than others, and eating tamales- except this year I made pasteles and thats about it.
