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 😉👌🏻
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 ☺️👌🏻🍤
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 in the -40’s that night, the sisters rental car wasn’t starting well, even from inside the garage and some weren’t feeling 100% 🙄
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 filo 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! 😄🎉😉
