Happy New Year!

Let me first say, Happy 2013! I can’t believe a new year is already upon us.

After a busy holiday season we decided to have a quiet, romantic NYE at home complete with steak, lobster, brown butter risotto, and a nice 2002 Cakebread Merlot. It was such a wonderful wine that I wish I had another bottle to celebrate New Year’s Day!2 We decanted the bottle and it was perfectly smooth by dinner. I love that Cakebread wines are well-balanced and can be consumed alone or with food. The Merlot was a nice addition to the filet mignon and even the lobster. If you like brown butter and risotto, Giada De Laurentiis has an excellent recipe. I did not put the lobster in with the risotto, but it was just as good. I received one of her cookbooks for Christmas and I am looking forward to making many more of Giada’s recipes!

Unfortunately, we did not make it to midnight, but I was perfectly happy sharing good food and good wine with my honey 🙂 2012 was full of many great things for us, but  here’s to being healthier, happier, and discovering new adventures!
