Like Ingrid and Evert we are spending a quiet night at home. Good friends that we usually spend New Years eve with decided that they didn't want to do anything because of Covid which worked out for us. Hope everyone has a good evening

Just the 2 of us this evening.
Dinner was a red beans and rice mix to which Sandy added some cubed ham. Spicy, but good!
Milk with dinner.

No great reason to stay up to midnight.
We went several years to a party at the community clubhouse...not happening this year, only groups of 10 or less there.
We have hosted in-house friends other years...not happening in 2020.
Not opening a bottle of bubbly at 12...my bride is not imbibing these days.
The only thing going for this NYE is mild temperatures...still 71°f at 9:30 pm.

I'm having some diet 7-up. It may get a caloric additive in a bit.

I'll probably be up early enough to wish all of you a proper Happy New Year!

Well, I made it to 2021. Fireworks in the ‘hood have been quite impressive tonight and are still going on. It’s a clear night and apparently people have money to burn. Let’s hope 2021 is a better year for the world.

My NYE party is going strong. I'm eating a chunky PB and mayo sandwich on rye, Miller Lite in my hand. Life is good! Some Ryan Seahorse (or something) special is on tv. I miss Dick Clark!

For dinner I'm having a dry aged ribeye, lobster claws, and green beans. Dessert will be a piece of chocolate pecan pie w/apple crumble cheesecake ice cream!


Shortly I'll be making a dirty Tanqueray martini(up) w/jalapeno stuffed olives.


Salute!!


Great minds think alike! :lol:
We had private reserve filet mignon topped with a lobster claw & béarnaise sauce, green beans & rosemary potatoes. We enjoyed dirty Grey Goose martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives. Dessert was our traditional midnight bananas, strawberries and butter pound cake dipped in chocolate fondue and a glass of champagne.

"Tourtiere"...French Canadian Meat Pie. I grew up in an area with French Canadian families. I think they often served it on Christmas Eve. This is the first time I made it. Mine needed more of the spices. Should have asked my sister for her recipe (she married a Canadian though he is not French Canadian).I bet Susanna has a great recipe. :D It is like a regular pie only it has a meat filling....ground pork, ground beef, mashed potato and lots of spices!

My "Geebie" (Mom's mom) made French meat pie for Christmas Eve every year. I never liked it (none of us kids did) but Geebie, Mom and Dad loved it, and you've gifted me with a wonderful memory this morning Ann. Thank you. :D

My mother made French meat pies every year. My sister makes them now and gives me one to keep the tradition going.

That’s different than a UK pork pie which is just ground/chopped pork in a hot water crust pastry shell, then once it is done you pour a stock gelatin mix through a hole in the top crust. You let it get cold so the gelatin sets in any free space in the pie, eat cold with pickle.
