Yay, 2017

We had a really nice time with Chef and Irene last night, but I have come to realize that Chef is becoming a grumpy old man. He's a rabid Carrot Top supporter, which makes no sense to me whatsoever. He lives for Fox news and he doesn't want to hear anything about ill health or cats. I'm pretty much out of topics. Thankfully, he does still like to talk about food, travel, and a host of other things. It just makes random conversation a bit less random.

TBG is tripping... a lot. He seems to be stumbling and I'm a bit worried. He just tripped on the cat plate, which has been where it is for months, if not years. Yesterday, at the store, he stumbled twice. He says he's fine, but I'm not so convinced. He took a header in England earlier this year and ever since then, seems less steady on his feet. Sigh, this is worrisome.

We are prepping for a dinner party tonight. The menu:

Apps: mugaro (ahi) and pine nuts in crisped won ton skins, asiago and rosemary crackers and Wensleydale and cranberry cheese.

Salad: Spinach and buffalo mozzarella cheese and croutons

Entrée: Individual rack of lambs, twice cooked potatoes, and peas and fennel with lardon (bacon, in our case).


Dessert: Honeyed wine with fresh assorted berries and raspberry sherbet.

Wine: Prosecco, Beldo zin and port to finish.

Thank the stars I have tomorrow to recover as everything (except the wine, cheese and sherbet are from scratch).
