This year finally seemed to slow down around December 30, and we’ve been enjoying lots of (rare!) snow, hot cocoa, fires, home projects (also rare this year!), more fires, visitors and, of course, good food.
Our New Year’s Eve was all the brighter with my college roommate in town, a culinary professional who brought with her a good bottle of wine and the fixings for this delicious dish, a simple pasta carbonara with fresh homemade pasta and mushrooms. We added our delicious Cobb Hill bacon. YUM.
For dessert we continued working our way through the delicious gift of Grater’s ice cream from a lovely family of clients and friends. Hard work, but someone’s got to do it.
The new year is starting fast and furious for us next week (you too?) but we got another weekend snowstorm on a day when we had nowhere in particular to go, and it will be a nice lazy memory to sustain us in the weeks to come.
Happy new year! Welcome 2010!
