new year’s eve dinner
- antipasto plate with salami, manchego, camembert and blue cheese
- white bean and tuna salad
- lemon spaghetti
- stuffed salmon (from Costco)
- toasted pound cake with mascarpone and amaretto (we could not find premade pound cake at the Italian Centre. So Ella made her own, without the blueberries).
I have to say I was terribly pleased with this combination of food. It was light but fulfilling, and the pound cake took the cake…warm and buttery with mascarpone cheese, apricot preserves with amaretto and toasted almonds? Heaven.
So here’s what happen when you have teenagers. New Year’s Eve, you drive them back and forth to parties to make sure they get home safely. You can have one glass of wine with dinner, but that’s it. And you set your alarm for 1 am and get into a cold vehicle to pick them up in your yoga pants, pajama top and parka.I figure I got up with them in the middle of the night when they were newborns…this is just an extension of that.
