New Year Stuff

First off, don't forget the Great Unsung Fic and Vid Party over here.

New Year's Eve, I went to get groceries with my brother, and we decided to go to the grocery store in St. George that's about as close to say, Nob Hill, as you can get here. Because I was making prawns with sage and truffle butter sauce for New Year's Day dinner, so we needed truffle oil. And he figured Harmon's was the only place that might have it. And they did! But better from my perspective, they've really upgraded their cheese counter since we were there last spring, and the now have Cowgirl Creamery cheese! YAY! And they had Point Reyes and Humboldt Fog. I was a very happy girl, let me tell you. So our NYE spread was a variety of cheeses and I made the leek/bacon/Gruyere puffs I made last year.

Yesterday, I made turkey soup and turkey stock, and had cranberry pecan pie for breakfast. Took a little break in between to play on LJ, which was so much fun! Then I made the prawns (though they were actually shrimp since they had no prawns) and lemon risotto.

When I've been able to pry Nin away from her new video game, we've watched some more S2 Psych, and my brother's DVD of Star Trek we got him for Xmas [g] We still need to watch the Rose Parade, but I think I'll need physically remove her from her room for that.

Today, I don't think I have to cook anything! So maybe I can read or even [gasp] get some wrting done.
