Oh yes, it's that time of year again. You know, the last meal before we impose starvation on ourselves. That's right, I am ranting about New Year's Eve and the "resolutions" the new year brings.
This year, I vow to "lose".....all the toxic people from my life. My good friend "K" and "C" know exactly of whom I speak of. And I plan on "losing" this toxic person in style.
I am thinking of having a glamorous New Year's Eve party with endless glasses champagne and fabulous eats. I will toast the New Year to being "toxic free."
I am pondering ...traditional champagne for our aperitifs and rose champagne for desserts. Which means a cheese platter with homemade crackers is order. These lovely pear wafers aren't exactly "crackers" but they add the "glamor" I am looking for.
The crisp pear wafers are stunning on there own and with a little blue cheese on top they are divine. The best part about the wafers is that they require hardly any effort.
As I look forward to the New Year, I hope it will bring me one year closer to finishing school, one year closer to moving home, one year closer to meeting "K", and one year closer to everything that life has to offer.
Happy New Year dear friends!!! May the New Year bring you closer to the "goals" you are working towards.
