A feast for New Year's Eve


 Will Lobster Thermidor do?

They arrived from Maine

  1. Fabulous - lucky you - wish I could pop over and join you - I have had enough turkey, ham, pork pie etc to last me for a long time. I too am feeling like some fish or something vegetarian.

  3. Will it do, dear Gina? How about I'll be right over? This is my kind of a meal!
    Your kitchen always looks so cozy but never more so than when it is cold outside and the white landscape shows
    against your colorful interior. Very lovely gallery of pictures.
    To you and Mr. G. a very Happy New Year.
    Warmest hugs, Sieglinde
