New Year’s Eve in Songdogland was thrills! Chills! Spills! Well, not exactly.
Dave and I made boeuf bourguignonne (which I should just call beef Burgundy because I can say that) in the crock pot, with a salad, a baguette, and shoestring potatoes — sorry, pommes frites. It was extremely tasty, and the wine was our favorite, Yellow Tail shiraz. Lots of wine. Wow, that was a lot of wine.
Entertainment was the movie Crazy Heart on DVD. Jeff Bridges as a rough county music singer on hard times. It was a very good film. Dave said it would’ve been a good film even with a different star, which, considering there was a lot of country music in it, is high praise. But it was nice to see Jeff Bridges. Very nice. He sings well, too.
And then there was the ball drop in New York City on CNN with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. We only watched about 25 minutes of that before we had dessert, Derby pie. Mmmmm. After that, TV was too annoying so we turned it off and … looked at pictures on Tumblr. <sheepish grin>
Basically, it was a quiet night at home. I remember when I used to go out for New Year’s. I don’t really miss that.
Here’s hoping everyone out there had a great New Year’s Eve, however you observed it, and that 2014 is a kind year to you.
