How Do You Start The New Year?
Whether it’s black-eyed peas, greens and corn bread, or putting a coin outside on New Year’s eve…how do you start the New Year?
This Is How I Start The New Year
But, someone once told me that you should start the year in the same way you’d like to have happen throughout the year. So, we went out to eat really good food on the first day of the year.
Our favorite restaurant, The Milford House in Milford, NJ is run by two of our favorite people. Rosie and Tom both have a lot of history in restaurants. Rosie’s family owned an amazing Thai restaurant in our neighboring town for years. And Tom is an exceptional chef who has worked in a few local restaurants over the years. He has an amazing sense about what flavors work well together.
For New Year’s Day, they had a special tapas menu with “buck-a-shuck” oysters. We ate like royalty. Thaddeus had oysters and a surf & turf meal and I had an amazing congee and tofu dish and a scallop scramble that was sublime.
In case you were concerned, Thaddeus and I started our year off well.
I was hoping to finish the Rainbow Double Hitch shawl, but I’ve still got a bit more to do on this one.
It’s going to be a nice size.
I’m up to about 130 stitches per row and usually get to the end of the yarn at about 150 stitches. But the rows grow bigger and bigger, so those last 20 stitches will still take a bit of work.
