Ringing in the New Year

I guess 2009 is finally here! We rang in the new year with some good friends at Ferneau Restaurant this year in Little Rock. Seeing as I am pregnant and the designated driver, staying up to 1:30 a.m. wore me out!!!

Dinner was nice and we got to listen to some great music by Richard Johnson. I have included some snap shots from the evening, but they just don't do Marsh justice. He had a little too much fun and, well let's just say, made the evening memorable for the rest of us! Thanks, Marsh!

The next day, Greg and I started off 2009 with some homemade waffles! I made them using the new waffle maker my brother bought me for Christmas! Unfortunately, I only have 1 recipe and it made a bigillion waffles! Oh, well - I never said I was Rachel Ray!

Afterwards, we went to Marsh's house for the Annual gumbo cook! Marsh prides himself in his "roux-making" abilities and each year we are pleased to see he isn't lying. This year, we had a fun little crowd for the New Year's Day festivities. The girls spent most the day in the living room chatting about chic-stuff (Pedigo's words are a little too vulgar for my blog). Meanwhile, the guys watched football and later ended up on the back porch playing guitar and making up their own songs. I've included some pictures of the "sing-a-long," which you'll have to take my word for it-- was hilarous! Thanks for cooking and having us all over Marsh!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve! We are looking forward to a very exciting 2009!

  1. Does anyone have a good Seabass recipe? HAHA..another case of too much red wine and not enough self control. Had a blast.

    Glad you guys enjoyed the gumbo and blackeye peas...get the crawfish ready in April so we can cook gumbo in the winter. I'm also impressed with your tolerance being sober and all...ahahah
