New Year's Eve at Chateau Inferno is a quiet affair. We prefer to make merry amongst our own and stay out of the insane South Florida traffic. I like to refer to the whole thing as "Amateur Night."
For those of you that love recipes, as do I:
1 gallon apple cider
2 blood oranges, sliced thin and halved
2 lemons, sliced thin
1 tablespoon of ginger
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of cloves
Simmer for an hour. Enjoy the aroma. This cures the common cold, seriously.
We roasted a little garlic for bread spread.
(Cover and bake, trying to control yourself.)
Fed my mother enough of this to waylay the germs that were attempting to scale her castle walls.
We sauteed some creminis.
Got out the reveling beverages.
Oh, and the ones for the adults.
Including the one for the hubs. A bottle of asti to myself? Oh, drat!
Rub down the steaks...
...ignite a little fire...
...and let's sit down!
My children all hate asparagus. I'm good with that.
Cheers and blessings to all as we enter 2011.
Thank you for being a huge part of who we are.
We appreciate and love each and every one of you.
