2010 New Year's Eve Raclette Fête
Still, existentialism aside, I'm very glad my sweet hubby used his hard-earned capitalist dollars to partake in the crazed consumerism of the holidays, buying me the Raclette grill I was hoping for-- and just in time for New Year' Eve! Here's what it looks like!
And because I didn't overdo it and now with my dream appliance, I want to invite a handful of friends over for New Year's Eve for a Raclette Fête ! This is so easy to prepare and so low-key that everyone, including myself the host, are guaranteed to have a wonderful evening. I'll buy the Raclette cheese and the fingerling potatoes. I've asked each friend to bring something to go along with our meal: Jill will bring the baby dill pickles and maybe some pickld asparagus, Marc the ham or salami, Deanna loves vegetables so I've asked her to bring a fresh veggie plate, Meredith will bring a couple kinds of bread and Pierce and Lily will each bring some white wine, like a Beaujolais.
This way I can extend the the joy, the memories, the fun and the laughter of being with ones near and dear without the stress to impress. 2010's gonna be grand!!!
