Around 7 p.m., our guests started showing up and we still had no power. The darkness and candles made for a nice atmosphere, but really ... I needed my ovens. At 7:45 p.m., we finally got our power back ... cheers all around!
Maureen the double fister ....Meanwhile, the kids were downstairs causing havoc ... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ... Happy New Year!I made these skewers with grapes for our champagne ... it is a Spanish tradition and brings good luck. No we are not Spanish, but I liked the tradition ... and I wanted good luck. Each skewer is supposed to have 12 grapes ... one grape for each month of the upcoming year. But ... my grapes were too big, so we each only got about 8 grapes or so. That means we'll have good luck through about August and after that we're in trouble. Hopefully we'll find more luck along the way!
