For the first time since September, my whole family is together to ring in the New Year!

And we lucked out, the weather has been AMAZING. What a beautiful last day of 2011!

What’s the best way to feed a household of 9? Build your own sandwiches.

We portioned out three loaves of french bread and had a free-for-all toppings bar.

My portion was layered with havarti cheese, turkey, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, and avocado.

With a side of hummus, guacamole, blue chips, and carrots.

Those things are addicting. ;)

We’re keeping it pretty casual for New Years Eve. Maybe a trip to a local bar and some fireworks, but really we’re just happy to celebrate together.

However you ring in 2012, please remember to keep it safe and responsible. Only happy news allowed in the morning, ok? ;)

Happy New Year Everyone!

It’s no secret that Derek and I are HUGE fans of Man v Food. When ever we plan a trip somewhere, the first thing we do is look up the location via Man v Food and see what Adam recommends in the area. Thus far we’ve enjoyed: Acme Oyster House – New Orleans Blue Heaven more »

What I’m Reading

December 29, 2011

I’m not sure I gave enough props to last night’s dinner. The reheated leftovers for lunch today had me licking my lips and wishing I had more.
