Happy New Year’s eve everybody! I’ve got an hour before I head over to Johnny Fox’s to get my hair did for this evening’s 10th Annual Playaz Ball. Moustache? Moustache.
My article is up on the City Wire. You can read it by clicking here: Twang!
Last night we had a sort of impromptu S.A.N.D. meeting at the SandCastle (Nicky the Cook’s house). It was a quick planned event to try and see the Old School (literally) crew while they were still in town. We kept the menu pretty relaxed due to the time constraints and it worked out beautifully. I was itching for an excuse to break in my new KitchenAid mixer, so I baked what I call “Chronically Indecisive Cookies”. They are a little bit peanut butter cookie, a little bit chocolate chip cookie, and a little bit mixed nut cookie, all rolled into one.
It has become a tradition, recently, to eat a whole bunch while we are cooking. I blame the Heat. She brought a block of Havarti last time and this time I brought a really nice jalapeno Havarti and some Capicola. The Heat brought a wheel of baked Brie with pesto (en croute). Check it:
At some point, the night devolved to this:
Yes, a bunch of out of shape almost 30 year-olds ran around chasing Princess Kay with the Nerf guns that Santa brought her for Grismas. The Vader helmet came into play later when we were exhausted from the feast and the subsequent running around and shooting and we just decided to take turns wearing the helmet while the others tried to get Nerf darts to stick to it. The Heat won with a grand total of 31 darts.
I have to say that is was definitely a grown up-little kid night. Grilled cheese and Nerf guns. Good times. I also have to say that shooting a Nerf gun repeatedly at someone’s head is amazingly cathartic. Just so you know. I did get a photo that I feel summed up the evening pretty well.
