Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year!

Kristine took us out for a delicious New Year's Dinner!
We each ordered a different meal.
Cafe Vista - Meadow Vista
We had reservations for 5:00
and were the first customers to be served.
We really don't like to be driving
the mountain roads late at night.
5:00 was a good time for us.
First we had some wonderful bread from,
The Baker And The Cakemaker,
an artisan bakery in Auburn.
soooo good!
I ordered curried butternut squash soup.
Very good...
I would have been happy
with just soup and the bread...
Kristine and Tom had mixed green salads with gorgonzola,  candied walnuts, apples, and cranberries.

--- Then Dinner Arrived! ---
Tom had prime rib with garlic and rosemary,
au jus, horseradish creme fraiche,
and a twice baked potato and roasted vegetables. 
Kristine had grilled halibut with a shallot white wine sauce served with zucchini, fresh tomatoes
and spinach on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes. 
I had chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and basil
topped with a white wine  mushroom sauce,
served with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables.

We each shared a little bit of our dinner
with each other...
and everything was absolutely scrumptious!

Kristine and I had blueberry bread pudding for desert.
Tom had chocolate mousse.

There are no photos of desert
because they were soooo good that we ate them up
before I could even think about taking pictures.

Thank you, Kristine, for a lovely dinner!

We got home before
the fireworks and gunshots started.
Well, there was some gunfire before we left,
but it has been quiet since we got back.

We expect to hear a lot of gunfire
and fireworks at 12:00.

A Happy New Year 2012 To All!
