I know this is a late New Years post, but hey I gotta get it up sometime. I had an excellent New Years Eve, probably the best one yet. I went to friends house and played games, drank beer, and ate food all night. It was a great party and I had a lot of fun.
We played Charades and the game where you put the cards on your head and you have to figure out who you are. Sorry, I don’t know what it is called. We played 2 rounds, the first time I had Bob the Builder and the second was Hal 9000, which I had no clue who that even was. It was a frustrating game, that’s for sure.
It was also a ‘cocktail’ party for whoever felt like dressing up. I had just bought this dress and had so it was a perfect time to wear it. I love long sleeved dresses and it would be great to have a huge collection of them. I’m alway so cold and most dresses are sleeveless so I have a hard time wearing them in the winter.
I started the New Year off right with my very first Julia Child recipe.
Roquefort Cheese Balls.
I changed up the recipe a bit by making it one huge ball, instead of individual ones. I served it with Ritz crackers, olives, and some paté. It came out great and was a huge hit at the party. The consistently was perfect to be spread on crackers an it had a nice salty taste that wasn’t overbearing. It was a pretty simple recipe, but still that is 1 down out of 12 for the year.
I will leave you now with a great group picture of most of my friends here in New York. It is missing a few essential friends, like Cory and Kelly, but it’s still an awesome group shot.
Even Bongo made it into the picture : )
