Wow. 2009! I’ll take my flying car and silver jumpsuit now, please. Hehehe…
Hope everyone had a fabulous evening last night!
The Angry Chef and I had an unexpectedly quiet night. We had planned to go up to The Salem Insider‘s annual new year’s bash, but sadly, another big snowstorm kept us home.
Here’s the scene from the steps of The Mouse House late yesterday afternoon, post shoveling.
Here are some more pics of the snow and the preparation for Boston’s First Night celebration.
Dinner and a movie
Even though he shoveled (and shoveled, and shoveled), The Angry Chef still found the energy to whip up a fantastic and romantic New Year’s Eve dinner.
Here are our boneless pork loin chops, which were sauteed in a mix of garlic, ginger, sesame oil, Chinese star anise, a touch of maple syrup, and of course, his top-secret Asian pepper spice mix. (I still don’t know what’s in it.) He also made some super-yummy yellow rice.
After dinner, we hunkered down with a few cocktails and watched Hellboy II—with a quick break to take the beast outside.
As usual, Dexter is at his happiest when he’s covered in snow.
Happy new year!
