We went to a late buffet lunch (I'm really getting aggravated at people calling anything brunch), then all came to our house for some bubbly and conversation. I made the two of us, after everyone left, some macaroni & cheese, easy (not the baked kind) for supper.

Thanks again. It was fun.
I have a recipe for "mock" Big Mac Sauce. Let me know if you want it.

Sure, serve it up
It's hard to say when the next time I'll be making big macs is, but I'm sure it will work on Ruebens, too.

Pac, if Big Macs looked like that here, I would weigh 300 pounds. Yummmmm!

we spent new years day in the city shopping, seeing the tree in rockefeller center, then went out to eat.

dw and my boy by the tree. he was getting tired and crabby and didn't want to smile.




the tree over the statue of prometheus:



sorry about the blur. they're cell phone pics.


we ate at dw's favourite italian joint on 9th, www.puttanescanyc.com .

like so many things, it wasn't as good as it used to be. we started with ridiculously overpriced salads ($12 for a handful of frisee and hazelnuts, with a beet chopped up into it?), then my boy had spaghetti and meatballs, dw had the bronzino and roast spuds, and i had a special of crawfish over squid ink linguini.

my family's dinners were just ok; the portions were tiny but tasted ok. but they served me just 6 small whole crawfish with overcooked pasta, for $25!!!!

first of all, it was kind of a fancy place to expect me to eat tomato sauced crawfish by hand. but the worst part was that they didn't exactly taste very fresh, kinda fishy.

oh well, at least i was finally able to convince my wife that we can try other restaurants the next time she comes into the city. the last 4 or 5 times we ended up eating at this same place because it always was so good. i'm not sure what changed, but we won't be back.

nonetheless, it was a really good day to start the new year.
