New Year’s Eve . . . and a toast to the New Year. I was introduced to my favorite champagne by Sergio, a wonderful waiter at Brennan’s in New Orleans. Sergio was great and we miss him since he retired. He suggested Perrier Joet with breakfast and it was a match made in heaven. I have also found a much (and I mean, much much) less expensive champagne (actually sparkling wine) that is really good. It is Castillo Perelada Brut Reserva from Spain. It is just over $10 a bottle and is really good for the price. It makes excellent mimosas for New Year’s morning as well.
We will be having a quiet dinner at home tonight and then a traditional New Year’s dinner tomorrow. I like to leave the Christmas decorations up through New Year’s Day and then take them down and start new. I always love starting the new year. It is like a clean slate to write on.
Happy New Year’s everyone. I would love to hear what you are doing to bring in the new year.
