Plenty of odds and ends in the freezer to snack on New Year's Eve.

If it's cold on New Year's day I'm thinking about making a small pot of beans & greens or Zuppa Toscana to start the year off on a frugal and hopefully prosperous note with beans representing coins and the greens representing dollars for good luck.

I'll probably buy some homemade tamales again from the lovely Latino ladies who make them so well , and make a chiles rellenos casserole. There will probably only be 5 here. Doubtful I'll be up until midnight to ring in the New Year.

That sounds fun. I love going to house parties tbat end up having a band.

One of our friends that came over tonight for our early NYE dinner is in an up and coming band called Deviant Youth. They released their first single a few months ago:

I'd love to have them play here for a bbq next summer. Or better yet, have them set up in our foyer and record a few songs a la Led Zep in Headley Grange.

They recently played at the Stone Pony (a famous Jersey bar), and Eric, guitar and vocals, said he was blown away when the crowd started singing the lyrics along with him.

msm, your menu looks delicious and ambitious, as usual. But if it is overwhelming, cut back. Take care of yourself first. If anyone complains that "this" is missing or that they really wanted "that", tell them with a smile and honey dripping off your words that they can take care of that item next time. After all, you still need to see many more New Years.


It will probably be just Himself and me. Since we always stay up late, New Year's eve isn't much of a challenge. I'll be assembling all the ingredients for "make your own pizzas" to take to a Browns watch party Sunday at the home of one of Loverly's friends. I'll probably make sure I bring enough supplies back to make pizzas for Monday night. Pizza and beer - perfect food for a laid-back New Year's.

Ain't the internet great! One video with lyrics, and everyone can be a sing-along fan. Their music is happy sounding. Toe-tapping. I wish them luck.

I went to a xmas party last week hosted by an ad agency I work with, that is also owned by a college friend who also has a band called Lil' Blue Pills.

Like you, they have lucrative day jobs, and play music at local clubs mostly for fun -- they couldn't live how they live on that gig money.

I shot a few photos at the party. Not a lot of photos -- I tossed a camera in the car just to snap a few shots. The guy with the Les Paul is my college friend.

Plans are still open. IE,meaning we haven’t discussed yet. For all I know, plans may already be set in cement. NY’s will be just the 2 of us. I doubt we will have a picnic on a blanket in front of the fireplace. Did that one year, or maybe it was Valentine’s day. -- We took the Grands snow sledding the other week. Gentle, not steep, hill for their first time, and once we hit the bottom of the hill, we coasted a long way. The kids jumped up and wanted to go again right away. A new discovery found us crawling towards each other to help us up off the ground. Literally. I think this eliminates any holiday floor activity.

Everything tastes better when it sits on a Ritz.

Reminds me, I think I should go to the Scandinavian market and pick up a wee small container pickled herring. They sell in bulk, so buying just a little is a breeze. Except it’s so darn cold out. At this time of year, you pick a number when you come in the door, not wait until you get to the counter. The whole store would probably laugh if all I ordered was 4 oz herring. On the other hand, we have lots of cheeses, limited choices, mostly cheddar.

There are several roasts in the freezer from Costco. Dx loves French dip sandwiches. I think I will finagle a way to mention this idea today. And her devilled eggs are very good. I should mention those. I can make a bowl Texas caviar with chips, she likes that.

There’s a lot of College Bowl games this weekend, including today, so I’d better hop to it or catch up.
