Brazilian style cheese rolls

I love this time of the year, I thought as I lit candles for our New Year's dinner.

For New Year's dinner I roasted a good piece of  pork  tenderloin with roasted apple sauce and some cold appetizers and several salads. For dessert I choose a selection of fruit tarts and seasonal fruit salad.

The evening was warm and ran a nice cool breeze. At afternoon, butterflies surrounded lazy over my garden´s flowers  I could not think of anything but make our New Year's Eve dinner "al fresco"

But organizing the holidays  is not an easy task. And nothing better than take a  break to recharge energy, drink a good espresso with a warm Brazilian style cheese rolls .

I hope  2012 brings you all the happiness that you deserve and to be a wonderful year.Have a nice week.
