Goodbye to 2020, Hopefully the Worst Year of My Life

I'm so glad we went hard on New Year's Eve last year; bought the sparkly clothes, went to a fancy joint with unlimited booze.. a pre-party and an after-party. The whole nine yards. Little did we know the world would end and we'd be stuck inside and wouldn't see a single soul the year following.

With no chance of even the slightest social interaction, we decided to make our New Year's memorable with some fancy food and drinks. Lydia made this fantastic charcuterie board which seem to be in style lately.

We watched a documentary about St. Louis' Italian neighborhood, America's Last Little Italy: The Hill.
Lydia's grandma Nana Pam was a journalist who covered religious news and they showed a news article that she wrote.

We had some cheap bubbly that we used to make cocktails.

We had cranberries left over from Christmas dinner and so used them in a couple cocktails.

The apex of the night's refreshments for me was caviar. These beautiful little fish eggs have been on my bucket list for some time now. I was hoping to use airline miles to get one of the first class flights that I know serve this, but it's been a few years and I've yet to make it happen so... why not? I feel like one of covid's lessons is to not wait to do things that you want to do.

It was a much lighter flavor than I expected. Slightly buttery, fishy, and salty.

I had never butterflied a lobster tail before so that was fun. 

There was Moet.

Lydia likes backgammon a lot. I could take it or leave it personally but her happiness is just so important to me, what can I say?
