It was a wonderful time.
We decided to stay in the for the evening, since one of our visitors was a 5month old cutie!
I've had Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol 1 & 2 for a few years, but haven't made anything. New Years Eve seemed like the perfect time!
|Everyone napping while I cook!|
I made boeuf bourguignon with mushrooms and onions. I also made garlic mashed potatoes and G made tomato, cucumber, red onion salad with a pomegranate vinaigrette dressing.
As an appetizer, I also made these baked cheese bites (found on pinterest) but with goat cheese and homemade green chile jelly! (without the sticks)
Dinner was a hit! and everything was tasty (or so I was told. I don't eat red meat or pork, so no bourguignon for me!)

|It only took a few years to get the whole collection! Love it!|
Dessert was pretty difficult :) A variety of single size ice creams with a few rousing games of rummikub!
We rung in the New Year with Gruet champagne and flipping between Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly. Fun times!
It was a wonderful way to ring in 2013!
Hope you had a great New Years and are having a great 2013.
