Our first days of 2011 were spent enjoying the comforts of home,
watching football, and
running a full Lord of the Rings movie marathon.
1. Brownie-Bottom Panna Cotta Cupcakes-- a new invention!
2. Watching Saffron turn whipping cream that beautiful reddish yellow color that goes with sunsets
3. Preparing for the traditional New Year's Day Black-Eyed Pea Fest
Husband's "smoking" station, where he braved the rain to turn out a feast of Boston Butt and Chicken, smoked and seasoned to perfection with a homemade rub, sugar, and cider vinegar.
Now, it's back to normal!
