FFwD ~ Playing catching up!

 Wishing all
Xin Nian Kuai Le
'Happy New Year'
 Above: Winter ceviche  - scallops with homemade mango nectar sauce
with fresh tarragon, olive oil, zest and juice of lime, lemon,
seedless green grapes and diced mango
Flesh of one small ripe but firm mango, diced small
1 tablespoon of sugar (enough by me)

Above: pea soup, cheating-on-winter
light and healthy - just a bit of butter,
diced onions, frozen peas, romaine lettuce and water
broth if you so wish
salt and pepper - blended - served hot or cold
so good none left to be served cold!
garnished with toasted sliced almonds
 above: m. jacques' armagnac chicken
roasted in crock pot aka slow cooker
worked out fabulously good!
used cognac instead of Armagnac
the sauce was still good!

  1. Great catch up! I think I used cognac in place of the Armagnac, too, when I made that chicken.

  2. Happy New Year Emily. Looks like you have been doing some cooking. I still need to make chicken Armagnac.

  3. wow Emily, you have been busy! all of your dishes look so yummy!

  4. You always have the best catch-ups!
    Looks delicious.

  5. Wow, that's a lot of dishes! Thanks for the mango nectar tip. We hate that they all have corn syrup in them, at least all the ones available at the stores around here.
