Weekend of Eating

(Side note: The job hunt, social media video projects and Google Reader distractions have pushed me behind on this blog and my little videos. I’m playing catch-up. I’m also grateful for everything that’s keeping me busy while I live a life of leisure in Cow Town)

Good times in Vacaville: We rang in the New Year at home with our friends. Our last meal of 2009: Beer-can chicken, salad, garlic bread, lasagna and plenty of sparkling wine & beer.

When we hook up – that usually means plenty of good eating and drinking. Someone said we should spend the New Years weekend eating every three hours.

Mission Accomplished.

On the first day of 2010 – we had something to satisfy meat lovers, savory cravings and sweet teeth. I loved the scent of bacon grease and sourdough pancake batter taking over my kitchen. My Daisy enjoyed watching Mark and Andrei work off the cork on the bottle of Barefoot Brut Sparkling Wine. We had to have our mimosas with the first meal of the New Year.

After breakfast – we selecting some crazy furry characters and competed in Rayman Raving Rabbids for WII (“How do you make it move?”). We went old school with Dr. Mario (“I can’t believe you did that!”) and took a break from the electronics with Chinese Checkers (“Thanks. You screwed me there.”).

In between games – some folks did a food/drink run and we took care of the leftovers. For dinner – cheese & onion pierogies with sauteed mushrooms and onions. I also had one of the best Gin Martinis in my life. Viva la Bombay!

And most importantly: Thank God for good friends.
