So here's the thing....

We had a great party on new years eve.  I could go on for quite some time about how lovely my friends are and how I constantly feel so lucky to spend these special moments with them because they are so freaking fantastic.  But noone really wants to read that, right?  So instead, I'm going to show you the most amazing picture ever taken.  It pretty much sums up new years eve.

M & A... Not too serious to fist bump.

We had a great time, consumed quite a bit of bubbly and an equal or greater amount of snacks (I'll post the menu below in case anyone is interested in a recipe or two).  But really, I just am so happy that I could ring in the new year with no shoes, a fantastic NYE tiara and a party dress in my home with my husband and my friends, new and old.  I feel SO LUCKY.

Enough gushing... here's the foodstuffs!
Truffle Popcorn
Curry Yogurt Dip and Veggies
Bacon Jam Rolls
Rosemary & Black Pepper Pickled Grapes
Bay & Mustard Marinated Olives
Butternut Squash and Parsnip Soup
Mushroom and Thyme Spread
Carrot Hummus with Lamb Ragu
White Wine and Homemade Mustard Glazed Ham with Rye Bread

If you want any of these recipes, hit me up!

Happy New Years everyone.  If the last few days have been any indication, it's going to be a great year.

Still not regularly scheduled programming...

But I wanted to take a moment to offer a quick congratulations to one of my best friends and his SHINY NEW fiancée!

She's an amazing girl who I feel lucky to have become close with thanks to him and I couldn't be happier that he was smart enough to lock it in.

So this is the New Year

Happy New Year Friends!
