What a year it’s been! Since starting my blog in June, I’ve shared close to 60 recipes with you and I am slowly getting the hang of this blogging thing. I truly appreciate your support throughout it all.
No surprise that food takes center stage for us on New Years Eve, which we celebrate with my friend Kathy (of Shrimp & Grits fame) and her husband. Some notable items on the menu this year include a spice rubbed beef roast with a red wine reduction sauce, skillet potatoes (also known as “pommes persillade), and sauteed spinach with panko. For dessert, Kathy is making this lovely mixed berry compote with mascarpone-limoncello cream, and biscotti served with vin santo.
We have an ample supply of Segura Viudas Aria Brut Cava as well as a favorite red wine from Provence: Mas de Gourgonnier.
A toast to the new year. May it be filled with happiness, good health and peace for all. And of course and endless supply of good things to eat and drink. A votre sante!
