Yeah, yeah, yeah. I posted New Year's greetings yesterday. So why am I just now doing a post about NYE? Because I CAN! And I've been sickly. Give me a hard time, and I'll give you graphic descriptions of HOW I've been sickly. I made Flo cringe and she used to be an ER nurse.
NYE was a BLAST! I made Chicken Spaghetti with asparagus spears and fresh yeast rolls. BUT, since I knew some of my guests like a little extra "kick" to their food, I made two batches of the CS. One batch had cayenne papper on top and the other had the usual chili powder on top.
On the anniversary side of things...I gave the Dearly Beloved an After Shave Lotion I had made up at Bath Junkie just for HIM! I had gotten him a "Texan" candle from Tyler Candles for Christmas. I took another one to Bath Junkie and had them make a lotion like that scent only MORE masculine. He smells SOOOOOO good. Did you know that if you take a whiff of coffee beans it clears your scent receptors? 'struth. While the smell guruess was mixin the potion for my DB, she would sniff the beans and have me sniff them to clear my nose between mixes.
OK, back to NYE. After dinner, Flo and I played mad chemist w/ the blender, mangos and the rum bottle. We now have the formula for Frozen Mango Daquiris. No, I will NOT divulge, but I could be persuaded to make y'all one.
After the daquiris, it was time to pop the cork on the Champagne bottles and sing "Auld Lang Syne". We sang with vigor if not much skill.
The next morning...many tears were shed as our friends packed their belongings and headed for home.
Ben still misses Ellie. But...
A good time was had by all.
