What a stupid waste of ammo. At the end of every hunting season here, most of the city hunters who didn't get anything do that. I figure that if they didn't get anything, they really should be using those rounds for target practise.

I know what I want, but I also know I'm not going to drive into the store to get it, so I'll probably have something to do with the pork I cut up yesterday. Maybe I'll make that ginger noodle thing as I just happen to have fresh ginger and green onions.

Every New Years Eve we have a tradition in our home we like to call "Butterfest".

Think of it as the decadent prelude to the next morning's New Years resolutions. This year we have lobster in butter, crab legs in butter, shrimp scampi in butter, artichokes in butter, rolls with butter. And then there's more butter on the side. The whole meal is washed down with Prosecco (not butter).

Can hardly wait!

I actually am planning to cook and eat tonight. Chicken fried steak with sauteed onions and pan gravy with seasoned rice. I might also open a small can of beets.

New Year's Eve is quiet at our home. It usually goes by without much to-do. I have barbecue beef stew in the oven and grilled cheese quarters with it.

The main meal will be prime rib roast, crockpot mac and cheese, broccoli. I picked up a cherry pie from the store and got some vanilla gelato. Veggie and pita chips with hummus or tatzhiki for snacking. There will also be some nacho's at some point in the day, maybe for lunch.

Cocktails of course.

Happy New Year to you all.

DxW is cooking dinner tonight. Pretty sure there is lobster and the rest is a surprise.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast made with a Tri-tip. A bottle of Bubbly for later.
