The Internet Kitchen: Snow Weekend

I hope everyone has some fun plans for the New Year’s weekend.

Betsy and I are mostly chilling around the house, but we are planning two fun outdoor snow-related activities – our first of this winter.

We’re planning on going snowshoeing at some point and bringing the dog with us to frolic in the snow.  I imagine that this will be much more fun for him than for us.

Then we will probably ditch the dog for a day and hit up our local ski slope for my first adventure in pain of this ski season.  I’m not a great skier, but I imagine myself as a great skier.  I’m sure you see how that leads to lots of problems.

Anyway, at some point during the weekend I’ll be cooking and it might as well be something from the new Cook’s Illustrated.  You pick!

And a few links!  These are all great dishes to make for the New Year’s weekend.  I’m also posting a good New Year’s brunch dish tomorrow so be sure to check back for that.

Tex-Mex Black Eyed Pea Casserole – My mom is always very insistant that I eat black eyed peas on New Year’s day.  It’s supposed to provide insane amounts of good luck.  I figure it can’t hurt.  (@ Recipe Girl)

New Year’s Gin – A good cocktail is a must for me on New Years.  This one looks pretty much perfect.  Anything with St. Germains in it is worth trying.  (@ Endless Simmer)

Mulled Wine – I love having a good batch of mulled wine in the crockpot during New Years.  I would maybe up the booze content of this recipe a bit with some brandy or something, but I love all the fruit in it and the photos are awesome. (@ Kitchen Confidante)

Shrimp Toast – Never seen anything like it.  Never heard of anything like it.  Never eaten anything like it.  Want it immediately. (@ No Recipes)

  1. Hey Nick. Made the black-eyed pea casserole and it was delicious. Definitely would make again. I only had cilantro so I used in place of parsley. I don’t know if I’m luckier but can’t hurt.
