New Year Eve 2007 Dinner and Wine: First dinner cooked in new house - Rosemary roasted potatoes, chicken thigh and a whole lot of other stuff

This is the first dinner cooked at my new house/kitchen. Invited a bunch of friends over for the dinner. Made like 8 dishes but did not have time to photograph all, just manage to shoot two of them - rosemary roasted chicken thigh, and rosemary and honey roasted baby potatoes. The menu consisted of the following:

Smoked salmon, avocado salsa and ricotta cheese bruschetta

Scrambled eggs and sauteed button mushroom with olive oil and balsamic vinegar bruschetta

Rosemary roasted chicken thigh

Rosemary and honey roasted baby potatoes

Linguine with minced lamb and button mushrooms in chardonnay and coriander sauce

Australian arugula and korean pear salad with garlic, italian parseley, honey, lemon and white wine vinaigrette, topped with shredded parmesan cheese

Grilled garlic, chili and butter tiger prawns


Vanilla ice-cream topped with Lindt chocolate sauce, whisky marinated strawberries and roasted pistachio nuts

Special thanks to all those who dropped by to officiate the first dinner cooked in my new kitchen: Samuel, Jega, Lei Kuen, Adam & friends (not sure of their names - Swee Chin, Tze Wei and Alan (I think) and MaeV. And also for their contribution in bringing beer and drinks, and helping me finish all the food! May you be blessed and happy! Sorry for not having time to entertain you guys before the dinner began and instead making Samuel and Jega helping me instead haha...And lastly, a BIG BIG BIG thank you to MaeV for helping me wash the dishes (life saver you are!)!
