Happy New Year’s Eve!!!

Happy New Year’s Eve to all of our blog family. We will be spending New Year’s Eve at home this year — preparing for our annual New Year’s party on January 1st. I will be toasting to everyone on our extended blog family.

Tonight Leslie and I will share our traditional bottle of Schramsberg Sparkling wine. This is my wedding anniversary. Thirteen 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 21th anniversary but Leslie insists on not counting the eight years of dating). We always celebrate with a bottle of J. Schrams. This was the bottle I bought after we got hitched at Alexandria City Hall. I used my house school ring.

We are expecting 150 friends to share in Wasabi Bloody Marys) and our traditional soup: The Bowl of the Wife of Kit Carson Soup. I am cooking two turkeys now to put into the soup.

Everyone drive carefully and have fun. I will be giving a toast to our entire blog family tonight (and, of course, my marriage).

  1. Happy anniversary to JT and Happy New Year to the rest.

    I worked New Years eve, but spent New Years night with a couple of old friends, a Prime Rib roast, and a good enough Malbec. We even got Grandma to watch “The World’s Happiest Toddler.”

    Next weekend is our big feast, Beerika. This year’s feast involves a deer haunch, smashed potatoes, and (hopefully) a bottle of Sam Adam’s collaboration with Weihenstephener, Infintium. Our guests are each bringing a course and beer pairing of their own.

  2. Buckeye,

    I once knew a guy who said he didn’t drink tequila because it made him break out in felonies.
