The day after an evening of bubble drinking seemed to call out for eating things rooted to the earth. Potatoes and shallots slowly fried up into crisp little bits alongside a one-egg omelette, and later a hot espresso cortado from La Nueva Bakery, seemed kind of perfect for the first day of the new year.


A walk around the neighborhood on a Tuesday that felt like a Sunday turned up January roses sitting atop thorny branches. And a little pile of neatly arranged acorns at the base of a tree.



Happy New Year to you.

    Sounds just perfect to me! Last night I made sclafani alfredo with fresh tomato, onion, and turkey bacon with fresh parsley. Comfort food for sire.

      Happy New Year, Leslie!
      Mmm, that sounds like my kinda comfort food. What does Sclafani refer to, the tomato sauce…?

  2. Happy New Year, Sonya. Hope to see you soon. Marnie

      Thanks, Happy New Year!
      I forgot to mention that I was inspired by you to get sparkly, silver Essie nail polish. It makes my fingers so happy!
