Wednesday Bookmarks, January 5 2011

Ok - first bookmark round-up of the year! It's been a while so I've got lots of new bookmarks - man, I'll never ever be able to catch up, will I? You can check out all of them here, but I'll post the highlights today.

I'm by the way quite nervous about the news that Delicious might be shut down - or maybe not. I sure hope not, but I'm investigating other possible bookmarking services, such as Diigo and Evernote. What's your favorite?

First out, a little appetizer that I actually tasted on a press event. It's a ginger-y shrimp cocktail with grapefruit - a super combination! Recipe is in Swedish, but I'll try to make this and blog about it soon. Other fairly light meals, which I'm really craving now, include a delectable Thai Chicken Salad from Pinch of Yum, and a recipe for Broccoli Crunch from one of my favorite recipe writers, 101 Cookbooks.

However, Sweden is still super cold, so I don't want to leave out the warming foods just yet. Fettucini with Corn Pesto sounds excellent to me right now, as does Corn Chowder with some spicy chilis.

Meatballs with peppers and pineapples sounds... weird, doesn't it? But intriguing! And I trust The Pioneer Woman to make great food, so I'll give this a whirl! Something else that sounds strange but probably isn't: Salt-baked Beef. (recipe in Swedish) Definitely on my to-try list!

Meatballs? No, not weird. My mom, when going slightly *exotic*, would make Hawaiian meatballs with pineapple, pepper and a sweet and sour sauce. We were rather a meat and potatoes family growing up, so this threw a twist in our menu! Tasty meal! In fact, tonight might be a good night....

A friend served me Prime Rib roasted in a salt crust for Christmas dinner. It was good!

Happy New Year!

I'm very tempted to make PW's meatballs but I think I might used minced pork rather than beef. I often make slow-cooked chinese pork and pineaple which is really tasty.
