Out with the old

Good bye 2010, hello '11.

I'd share some photos of our New Year's Eve except...Todd and I didn't take any!  I can't believe it.

We had delicious Thai food downtown at Lai Thai with our friends Jeff and Linda.  Then we went to their place and had drinks, snacks and played games.

In keeping with my family's tradition, we turned on Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve and watched the ball fall in Times Square.

It was pretty low key, but a lot of fun!

The rest of the weekend was also low key, but there were a couple highlights:

First, I got this - a salad spinner!

I used to make fun of Linds H. for having one, but I have since eaten my words.  I use heads of lettuce instead of the pre-washed and bagged stuff and it is a pain to wash the lettuce and get it dry.  I've been wishing for this for a long while and we finally got one!  2011 is going to be a great salad year!

Secondly, we made my favorite sandwich in all the world - and one of my most favorite meals ever - today for lunch.  Salmon with cream cheese, tomatoes, onions and capers.  Only we didn't put it on a bagel.  We used some brown bread I'd made for our New Year's Day lunch.

There is no place in Casper to get this sandwich, so my only resort is to make it.

I savored every...last...bite.


One of my resolutions?  To beg Bagel Makers from Cheyenne and Laramie to put a location in Casper.

Happy new year!  


  1. I don't think we took too many pictures, either....we're mostly eating:) The food looks good. It sounds like you and Todd had a safe, but fun New Years Eve.

  2. Howdy,
    found your blog from Mr. Jason Poppenhagan's blog. He was my buddy in AK when we were both teachers. Interesting that you're going back to school to teach. I left teaching to get my masters in PR. Go figure!
    Anyway, here's a shoutout from just north of ya!
