I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve. We will be going to a friend’s house and share our traditional bottle of Schramsberg Sparkling wine. This is my wedding anniversary. Eight years ago, Leslie and I eloped on New Year’s Eve after eight years years of dating. (There is an ongoing dispute over calculating the event, I insist that this is our 20th anniversary but Leslie insists on not counting the eight years of dating). We always celebrate with a bottle of J. Schrams.
I am cooking a turkey for our annual New Year’s soup tomorrow. We are expecting 150 friends to share in our traditional Bloody Mary’s (this year we will be doing Wasabi Bloody Marys) and our traditional soup: The Bowl of the Wife of Kit Carson Soup.
