We had some very traditional desserts for our Christmas dinner this year. I made my famous Krispy Treats with the secret ingredient. Here's where we broke the tradition. I had to throw the last one out. The piece was hard and it was no great loss, but I tell you, that was a first.
I also made magic bars. These are layered goodies in a glass pan. We had about a forth of them left over, so my husband took two squares, put his ice cream on top and whala, an ice cream "brownie Sunday" of sorts. That was new.
I had a redo on two restaurant meals. The one New Years Eve was penne pasta with meat sauce. The sauce was a bit tart. When I used it at home, I added some sauce from the frig and yum, great dinner. The other meal was a Monte Cristo Sandwich. I first had one of these (turkey, ham, and cheese with something sweet added) at the Blue Bayou Restaurant near Pirates Of The Caribbean at Disneyland. They are so tasty. Well, the bread on mine got soggy after a day or so. I took out a lonely left-over bun from the freezer, put my saved raspberry preserves on it. Tasty? Oh, my.
The biggest change was that New Years Eve, we came home from the restaurant instead of going to a movie and watched a couple of new Poirot DVDs. We were both so sleepy that we turned the T.V. off and didn't wait for the ball at Times Square to come down. It's been over ten years or more since we missed it.
And my New Year's Resolution is the same as last year. I'm going to try to go off sugar. I made it for six months last year. We are having a redo on that one, too. And I'm excited about a book I started about grace. I want to add something this year. I'd like to add a dose of GRACE to everything I do.
Not how about you? Did you make or bread any traditions this year?
