So I don't usually put a lot of recipes into the actual blog. I like having them separate, but I thought I would write about our New Year's Day dinner this year because I was especially proud of it. I did a separate blog on the superstitions associated with this meal, so I won't go … Continue reading New Year’s Day Dinner 2021
I am not much of a traditionalist, but this New Year's Day felt like the time to try a little.

He suggested we do a virtual online pop-in for any friends and family who wanted to join. We set up a Google meet session to run from 4pm-8pm.
