Welcome 2012!

Happy New Year! 2011 has been a full and busy year, and I am looking forward to 2012. I know it will be a better year. I know it because I am in a better place now than I was 1 year ago.
I haven't written out resolutions for the New Year, but I probably will before Monday is over. I have not done so in the past. It feels like setting yourself up to fail. But this year, I am feeling more optimistic. I feel better able to face what comes and keep things in perspective. But of course, time will be the test.
I have been baking today. I made coffee cake to have with brunch.

Menu: Scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, coffee cake, cantaloupe, red reedless grapes, coffee and juice.
Next: 4 loaves of bread to get through the week. I use the "Bread 101" recipe from the King Arthur Flour Baker's cookbook (awesome). I'll share it sometime as it is not on the (awesome)website.And finally, I baked these rolls, which are the Honey Wheat Rolls, recently featured in the blog on the KAF website. I'd be providing links, but for some reason I can't today, as I can't get my cursor to select text for linking...sigh.
We had the rolls with our New Year's Eve dinner: Glazed Ham, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole (you know the one), tossed salad, and Holiday Eggnog (on the EggBeaters website).
I made one other special item, but I won't be serving it until tomorrow, and I'm still not sure if it will all come together, so I'll post about it with pictures, if it works.
