Skip the millennium. Here here are 10 fun things for the new year!
[Edited to add: Totally editing this post in the AM for typos and general alcohol-induced confusion!]
#1 Corn chips. So so good. And I ate way too many. They went so well with #2
Drank too much of the good stuff. Had some OMB Mule Bock
#3 Moose Drool Clone
#4 The Simpsons!!! Evening entertainment game and the best show ever [Besides Gossip Girl!]
Tiebreaker in the game? “Who has the hairiest legs”.
#5: Matt legs won.
I realized that tonight was the first time I drank a whole bottle of one of Matt’s homebrews myself (I usually just have tastes when he pours them). Not sure that was such a good idea!
I was sooooo ancy tonight that I just wanted to drink beer and eat chips for entertainment
Some pumpkin ale.
#6: We moved to the kitchen around 8-something to prepare dinner
#7: The entree was grass-fed beef from U.S. Wellness Meats. I’ve been saving them for a special occasion, and tonight was perfect. We actually split 2 filet mignon’s in half so each couple got one – ’twas the perfect portion. Thawing the frozen filets in their package and cooking them was very easy.
#8: Butternut squash risotto. Amanda used a MyRecipes.com recipe.
We partied in the kitchen
And dinner was served…
The meat was perfectly rarely cooked by Matt and just how I love it. It was so nice to know it came from a good source.
Kale, steamed in white wine, maple syrup and olive oil with salt and pepper until it turned bright green.
Amazing butternut squash risotto – amazing. Classic with wine, garlic, nutmeg, parmesan, and chicken broth.
I had a lot more wine with dinner!!!!!
#9: Dessert was just delicious dark chocolates
I had at least one of each flavor
Wii was played
And at 11:45 the new year ball drop was put on
#10: Champagne was popped
Ha-ppy New Year!!!
