Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a joyful and safe New Year's Eve last night! Tommy and I had a low key night. We went to our favorite restaurant, Park Cafe. I tried to take photos last night, but I forgot my camera! Carrying on...... They had a pre-set menu, which included 4 courses. To start, we both had the Lobster Bisque, big surprise, huh? It was really good, but the mixture was a little watery for a true bisque...but the flavor was right on point. Next, I had a mixed green salad with champagne vinaigrette, and a crispy goat cheese ball. The salad was yummy, but the goat cheese ball was seriously one of the best pieces of cheese I've ever had!

Next, we move onto the entrees. Tommy ordered the Duck with lentils, and I went for the Sole with crab risotto. We also ordered Park Cafe's famous Green Chili Mac N Cheese. Let me tell you that this is my most loved mac n cheese I've ever had. If you haven't tried it, you have to have it. Pictured below.

Last, our desserts were trio dessert samplers of Park Cafe's Creme Brulee, Coconut Lime Sorbet, and a Ganache Truffle. Their Creme Brulee is also my favorite. It's not a traditional version, but a must try! The brulee is layered between phyllo dough, and topped with caramel, almonds, and raspberries.

After dinner, we made a quick stop by Ray and Sandra's house, then headed in. This is the first year we really haven't gone "out" for New Year's, but I enjoyed the change up. Plus, we're getting old, anyway! I was actually pretty lame and was in bed by 9pm. Go ahead, laugh.

However, I was abruptly awaken by the sounds of what I thought was an air attack. Turns out, it was just fireworks going off at midnight. So, I guess I was awake to ring in the New Year after all.

And you know, I lied. I do have a New Year's Resolution. My resolution is to take more photos! This is something I've always slacked in, but this year I will make a big change in regards to photos.

I hope everyone enjoys their New Years Day!
