Our New Year’s Day started out a little slow. We didn’t stay up till midnight, but because the littles were up way past their bedtime, it made for a very wake-filled night. And one of the middles slept over Grammy’s house for the first time. All by herself. Without her closest brother with whom she does everything. And she didn’t sleep well. So Grammy didn’t sleep well. When Grammy brought her home early (because she missed her Mama and Papa so much, poor thing), we were all pretty much in the same place – wishing for a few more hours of sleep. So we partook. All of us. And then we felt better.
And since New Year’s Day also happens to be my mom’s birthday, I made dinner and dessert. Simple but yummy!
- Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pesto
- Roasted Red Pepper and Olive Oil Rice
- Ginormous Green Salad
And a very good and simple Madeira cake for dessert. I added a cup of wild blueberries to the batter. Because I had them and it sounded good.
