Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years Eve. When I returned home from work yesterday, Stas surprised me with a gorgeous bouquet of orchids. We’ve had quite the exciting year together – getting married, honeymooning in New Zealand. It’s exciting to think about what 2010 has in store for us 🙂
We celebrated our evening with friends – eating, drinking, laughing, and reflecting a bit on where we were at the turn of the last decade (I was only a junior in high school!).
The table was well-stocked with Russian zakuski (Russian snacks):
There was cow tongue with horseradish:
two types of mushrooms:
Three variations of Olivier (my version, Oleg’s version, and a vegetarian version)… Recipe to come:
And of course, there was champagne at midnight:
I hope you all had a safe and happy New Years Eve 🙂
