Hope everyone had a lovely New Years celebration. Jim and I had a delicious, 5 course, early dinner at the Knife and Fork, and got home in time to watch the Lincoln center concert on PBS. We lasted till 11:30 which is late for us, but couldn't make it till midnight; but did catch a peek of an area in Russia welcoming in the New Year.
We started the New Year this morning with fresh squeezed orange juice from the lovely box of citrus fruits Jim's niece and husband brought when they visited from Florida Thursday. That cold spell they had just made the fruit sweeter!
Our plan for this windy, rainy day,is to relax, watch the Rose Bowl parade (me), and the football (Jim). I'll try to do some web page cleanup, maybe go through the new seed and garden catalogs that arrived the other day, and make a New Years day Fettuccine with sauteed onion, mushrooms and black forest ham slices.
Jim, our in house, wine steward, will be opening the wine our Sean sent us - an '07 Colgin, (in Wine Spectators top 3 last year or the year before). Needless to say we're very much looking forward to tonight's dinner!
Hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing, yet fun filled day to start the New Year!
