I’m all sick and stuff, which happens every friggin’ year during my holiday break, and Darren very well may be headed down the same street. So thanks mostly to that but also in part to laziness and the bitter cold, we’re staying in for New Year’s Eve. He had to work, but while he was gone I put together an epic holiday feast. A few little milestones happen in 2015 (we both turn 30, plus our 5th wedding anniversary), so we might as well go into it well-fed. Bonus: cooking a multi-course meal is on my 30-by-30 list.
So! Our New Year’s Eve dinner:
- bread (I used this recipe) with seasoned olive oil for dipping
- potato soup
- steak seasoned with kona rub from the Capital Grille, and roasted potatoes – we had a bag of potatoes that needed to be used, okay?
- peach pie – Darren’s favorite. Not homemade, but constructed using refrigerated crusts and canned filling with some extra seasoning.
I was hoping to go to a New Year’s Day yoga class in the morning, but the state of my sinuses seems to be working against me there.
Tonight when the clock hits 12, I’ll be watching Roseanne on Netflix, working on one more 2014-centric blog post, and eating a slice of pie. And possibly also sneezing. Happy New Year!
