Have your New Years Eve plans changed from a flashy night out on the town to a quiet night at home with your family? Maybe you have Grandma and Grandpa all ready to babysit but just don't have the energy, desire, or money to go out to dinner. Well, take heart! You can still have a wonderful and romantic dinner for two at home with a simple T-Bone steak, either split between you or one for each. The sauce makes it a special meal and the skillet frying makes it easy.
Learning how to easily roast garlic is a skill you'll be able to use in the kitchen quite often. Just about anytime a recipe calls for garlic you can substitute roasted garlic for a sweeter, milder flavor. Roast several heads at a time and store the mashed cloves in a tightly covered glass jar in your refrigerator. It won't last forever, maybe 4 or 5 days at the most, but you can extend the life of the garlic by drizzling olive oil into the jar along with the garlic. Enjoy!
