Happy New Year!
For New Year's Day we decided to stay home and enjoy a lovely supper. Naoko worked hard the day before preparing for the exquisite meal. A bottle of Moet & Chandon complimented the food. Moments after I took this picture of the champagne as I was preparing to take another picture, the cork unexpectedly shot up into the ceiling. It barely missed my eye and the camera lens as it grazed my hair. Eeek! Another close call!
We had four wonderful appetizers: salmon with capotana (top right), zuchinni with pesto (top left), fried watercrest (bottom right), and shrimp with shredded red onions and elegantly-placed capers.
Hmmm.... walnuts with gorgonzola cheese...
