Time to start thinking about the end of the year. Not sorry to see 2010 go, since much like every year since 2008, it’s mostly sucked. A lousy economy where I worry daily about my job, and to top off the whole soggy ice cream cone, no mission to Jupiter. We did have the McDonald win, followed by the election win, so that was something, at least. But I’m happy to say goodbye to 2010, and here’s hoping to avoiding unemployment in 2011!
We’re celebrating tonight with some Navy Bean Soup I’m making out of the ham bone and ham I have leftover from Christmas. On top of that, we’ll be making a two cheese swiss fondue, along with a variety of dippers. For drinks we have Manhattans, Mimosas and some sparkling wine for ringing in 2011 at midnight. I also have some Kirschwasser leftover from the fondue recipe, which is a brandy made from distilled cherries. It’s not like cherry brandy, which is just regular brandy (distilled from grapes) with cherry flavor thrown in. It’s more like a cherry derived liquor you could probably run your car on if you tried. It has a certain knock you on your ass quality that regular brandy lacks.
What’s on your New Year’s Eve Agenda?
