Happy New Year!
I've been doing a bit of baking lately. On the 30th, I made some pumpkin spice cupcakes, with salted caramel buttercream. These look like muffins until they are iced, but they are definitely cupcakes, and the moistest ones around!
Then yesterday I made some pumpkin gingerbread loaves for the freezer. I'll just thaw them in a week or two, cover them with spiced buttercream, and they'll be a perfect treat for Christopher.
To end off 2015, Christopher took me for lunch yesterday to Life is Good, a Korean restaurant in town. We've given this place a couple of chances, but we think Korea House is better.
We never go out on New Years Eve ... instead, we plan a delicious meal for at home, and usually fall asleep before midnight. Last night was no exception. We made a garlicky, bacony, pasta, and had that with some bread, olive oil and balsamic.
After dinner we played a couple games, including Scattegories, and Pictionary. Pictionary is not designed for two people, but we invented our own rules, and had a blast. After the games, we moved to the couch, where we tried to stay up until midnight, but accidentally fell asleep around 11:30 p.m..
What did you get up to last night?
Did you stay up to ring in the new year?
