ended 2018 with a delicious family dinner…

I ran out this morning to find some lobster tails and picked up a tiny orchid and some flowers… thought it would be lovely to start the new year with flowers… my beloved would have brought some home for me…

once home I prepared the twice stuffed potatoes…

then I relaxed and watched tv… I’ve been on a Bones marathon for days now, lol…

when the kids got here we finished getting organized… the younger boys helped set the table… the oldest grandson got Brussels sprouts ready and then cooked them… my daughter made sure the butter warmers were ready and my son-in-law barbecued the steak and lobster… had a FaceTime visit with the Ottawa kids and then dinner…

our traditional New Year’s Eve (or New Year’s Day) dinner was a treat… besides the steak and lobster, there were mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, salad, escargot sauce, twice-stuffed potatoes, and garlic butter…

yummy… we ended with lemon meringue pie…

everything was cleaned up and the kids headed home…

will be interesting to hear if they last until midnight, lol… not sure that I will…
