While this isn't a year in review per se, I am posting some of my favorite iPad photos of 2014. The blogger app is horrendous, so I'm uploading these photos from the iPad and adding commentary from my trusty laptop. Here's to hoping this is seamless, unlike most things iPad and blogger related:
Big Tessie and Big BobCat. Odin is afraid of Tessie, so BobCat has learned if he takes the bottom bunk, Odin leaves him alone. He's a smart cat...
Eric surprised me this year by returning from an overseas trip and proudly proclaiming that he learned how to make risotto. (Eric doesn't even know how I take my tea, which should give you an inkling about Eric's cooking abilities.) One of our Swiss friends is a Cordon Bleu master-chef, and a remarkable pedagogue. He taught Eric how to make a mushroom risotto that is out of this world. Eric now goes into Italian grocery stores and compares bottles of truffle oil, and could probably write a treatise on carnaroli versus arborio rice. Yes, Eric has turned into a foodie! A man after my own heart! Last night, he made a lobster tail risotto with saffron and asparagus that was my most memorable meal of 2014. Wow. We ended 2014 on a culinary high note.
On that note, we turn the page on 2014, and welcome 2015 with open arms.
