‘Gingerly’ Awaiting The New Year

Saturday Dec 30th –

 

I had limes to use up and knew just how to do so.
I made some gingerade, a drink we’d had in Hawaii and it turned out to be really similar!

 

I took it over to the parents house for everyone to try.
It was a bit too strong for most of our tastes but if I could find another flavour to mix in or maybe more honey, it could be a really good drink, especially for hotter days πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I hung out until supper time, which turned out to be fresh fish and shrimp from the store, picked up by Dad and ate along side gnocchi with a lemon basil sauce β˜ΊοΈπŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ€

 

 

Sunday Dec 31st –

 

New Year’s Eve day.

We didn’t go to church that morning as a New Years evening service would be happening late that night, so I stayed warm at home and ate the garlic parm bites Mike had got me before he’d left, for brunch 😜

 

Later that afternoon Dad retrieved me and I spent the rest of the last day of the year, at my parents ☺️
We decided to stay back from the New Years service as it was inΒ the -40’s that night, the sisters rental car wasn’t starting well, even from inside the garage and some weren’t feeling 100% πŸ™„

So we listened to a sermon by Bro. Branham and then made a little sampling of snacks ☺️

I tried something I’d wanted to make for a while, brie bites with cranberry sauce and rosemary.

 

They were good but needed tweaks… less croissant dough or maybe filoΒ pastry instead, for some crunch ☺️

We didn’t mean to stay up until it became 2018, all feeling old and un excited about the strike of midnight, but then a family video was put as it had recently been converted from cassette to CD.
We got distracted by our child selves and accidentally did stay up until 12:00…
Happy New Year! πŸ˜„πŸŽ‰πŸ˜‰
