Oh it’s 2018? Why didn’t anyone tell me? Yeah, this is the 2nd year that nobody told us we were having New Year’s Eve at home so just like last year, our New Year’s Eve spread was decided only that morning.
(Check out my year ender post here: 2017 Highlights and #LifeGoals for 2018)
But I’m sure you’ll agree that our table looked nice… heehee. Still a Happy 2018 to me! Some of the steak were overcooked but it was good too because the leftovers turned out a delicious Steak Fried Rice the next day. (May brunch na kami..)
Of course, the round fruits won’t be missing the table for good luck…
We had a salad made of mixed lettuce and arugula, walnuts, black olives, cherry tomatoes, and strawberries.
We had Lamb Chops with Mint Jelly
And our favorite at this moment in time: Honey Garlic Baked Salmon.
What’s different this year is we were up until 12am to welcome 2018! We used to be asleep at 10pm..LOL!
Twinkle was up until 10pm, though but fell asleep the moment the clock struck 10:01.
I have a great feeling that 2018 will be a great year for us. Cheers to more fun, more challenges, more adventure.
Happy New Year everyone!
