Happy you-know-what

Hope all of you had a great Christmas and a delightful start to the new year.

Last night for our New Year's Eve dinner I cooked black-eyed peas. Eating them at new year's is a custom in the American South to assure good luck in the new year. We also had collard greens and baby back ribs. Followed by chocolate cream pie. The new year may or may not be lucky but we entered it stuffed so full that sometime between 9:00 and 10:00 P.M. we both fell asleep and the bottle of Veuve Cliquot is still ice cold and unopened.

Also contributing to the sleepiness were many hours spent watching the AbFab marathon all day and evening on BBC America. Today, to sober us up, they are running nothing but Cash in the Attic.

After a busy, and family filled, Christmas it was really nice to be alone and not hosting for New Year's Eve.
