If what you’re doing on New Year’s Eve is any indication of how your upcoming year is going to go, then I will be well-fed in 2010. I had several friends over to bring in the new year, and, well, we were surrounded by a boatload of food.
Lucky for me, my friends – new and old – brought excellent food to complement the meal, making the evening a communal event. Terra & Joe brought homemade smoked salmon and almonds. Alex brought a delicate angel food cake with brandy-kissed pears. Michelle showed up with the most beautiful cranberry cheesecake I’ve ever seen. Nathan made salsa. And Michael brought a feast: pomegranate and rosemary themed cocktails, handmade rolls, a pomegranate and spinach salad and Baseball Boy’s favorite of the evening: pears with prosciutto and bleu cheese.
