Your RSS feeds will likely be clogged with a bunch of bloggers’ resolutions today. Rather than bore you with the typical “lose weight, blog more” goals that I share with all my fellow Americans, I shall ease your hangover with a beautiful photo diary of what my New Year’s Eve looked like.
A classy beer tasting party.
The fabulously retro party basement that lies beneath my humble abode
Classic hors d’oeuvres including a fruit and cheese tray, deviled eggs, creamy Mexican dip, black forest ham crostini, homemade peanut brittle, and Dragon’s Milk Stout brownies (recipes to follow for the rest of the week)
Stone Imperial Russian Stout, Unibroue Maudite (amber Belgian-style ale), New Glarus Moon Man, Stone IPA, and a special New Glarus Raspberry Tart for the midnight toast.
Aside: I’ve had many failures in the kitchen, but this shin-dig (I flatter myself) was a delicious success.
