So, as my millions of readers (HA!) may have noticed I have been away for quite some time. Let s recap shall we….First I drove down to New York City to pick my mother up for the holidays. We spent 4 great days in the city, did some visiting with old friends and family, some sight seeing, some shopping and of course some EATING! It was great! First my mother and I had a tradition to uphold and we found ourselves in a great bar eating clams on the 1/2 shell and drinking Bloody Mary’s. Aren’t traditions grand! My mother, who is born and raised NY now living in the south also had to fulfill the craving for a dirt water dog, I couldn’t help but grab a bite, totally worth it. For breakfast we indulged on real NY bagels with cream cheese and lox, I think I had that for breakfast most mornings either that or egg and cheese on a hard roll. What else did we indulge in, oh yeah how could a trip to NY not include pizza. I was a bit of a pig and ate 3 slices, but oh was it good. Then to round it all off we had some real good Chinese food. I don’t know what it is maybe the water from what I hear, but these foods just taste better in NY. When you move away you crave them, even dream about them or at least me and my mother do!
Well I was in such a frenzy shopping, seeing and eating that I totally forgot to take any pictures. So I drew these just for you!
So that only explains about a week. After we returned to beautiful VT, in a snow storm I might ad, we had a great Christmas. My mother an I shared the cooking and we created a seafood feast for Christmas eve and I made a wonderful prime rib for Christmas dinner. The only shot I managed to grab on Christmas was after a few rounds of Dominos and a few bottles of Champagne! Cheers….
In conclusion we had a lovely dinner at a local restaurant for New Years Eve then we drove back to NYC so my mother could catch her train back to Georgia.When I returned i promptly got a serious sinus infection and have been in bed ever since! Happy New Year!
