NYE 11pm

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Our last course this evening consists of mini cream puffs and eclairs. I liked the menu, though I realized after I went shopping that I forgot about cheese and bread to dip in oil and vinegar. Next year!
So I’m singing Crimson and Clover, as you do, and the lyric “my my, such a sweet thing” […]

The last 4 months of this year have been packed and amazing, and right now I’m singing my heart out with the fam. I think the last Reflection is going to have to wait until morning

May through August
May
Starting back in April the LA Kings (that’s hockey for those that don’t know) began their play-off run. It became a VERY.BIG.DEAL in our house. The month of May was really a blur of hockey games, both on TV and, for Chris, in person. Oh, and at the end, I had a […]

Stuffed mushrooms. To die for. I used veggie sausage, of course, but I highly recommend this recipe.
And now Daisy’s in the party spirit. We even got her to dance.

“Chicken” taquitos. Not bad, but I really should have made guacamole.
Singing is done for now and now we’re dancing! Man was Tabi disbelieving that I beat her. What with her being the dancer and all,

Kalamatas, garlic stuffed green, green with pimiento, and spicy marinated green beans. Yummy!
So far we’re just singing for the heck of it, no competitions, I think I feel “Rehab” coming up for me followed by “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” (GNR version, of course). Here’s my karaoke avatar for whichever one we’re currently playing. Fashion disaster […]

January through April
Well, it’s been a heck of a year, this 2012. The negative things were so minor, I honestly don’t remember them. We’re all healthy, as are our families, the work front has been good, and all in all, I’d say it was a pretty fun year. Really looking forward to seeing what 2013 […]

Nachos!
And the karaoke has started! Chris started off strong with a Killers’ song, but then had to do a Taylor Swift song to complete a challenge, and well, not so good.

Tabi had to be called in to sing it for him. It was the Romeo and Juliet song so I felt compelled to remind her […]

Starting off tonight’s festivities. First course, hummus with veggies and crackers; plus canned cheese which is nicknamed “Death Cheese” in our house.
I was hoping some East Coast channel would be showing something, but we have to wait until 8pm to get anything so Daisy is watching Sophia the First while the rest of us do […]
