happy new year!

my princess leia hat

I wanted to give you a recipe for an early 2010 before I left for the Dominican Republic (whee!), but my time management skills are lacking. Instead, what you get is a vision of me in my Princess Leia hat, a picture of the one of the cutest kids ever (with whom I’ll be spending some time in DR over the New Year’s holiday) and what I had for lunch the other day. Why my recent lunch? Because I hope that 2010 is a lovely, wholesome and nurturing year for you all, much like this chicken soup I had made earlier in the month and froze for those days when it’s far too cold to go outside.

yes, you may have a pony.

I hope that your celebrations are sparkling and joyous, that champagne is flowing and the laughter is without a pause. I hope that the year is full of the same joy and exuberance your parties are and that wherever you find yourself next year, you feel loved and cared for. That is my wish for all of you and I can’t wait to share some January-perfect recipes with you in 2010!

lunch - chicken soup

Happy New Year! Thank you for being a part of my world and allowing me to be a part of yours!

    I too, am new to the Sassy Radish devotees… but what I really want to know is did you knit that hat?! I have to find the pattern, I love it! Also looking forward to your archives, as time permits me in the new year. Happy New Year!

    EVERYONE – you TOTALLY made my night last night when i got in at an ungodly hour from the airport and read your comments. What a lovely lovely thing to come back to!! Thank you all for being here and your compliments on the hat.

    I’ve some disappointing news: the hat was given to me by my ex-boyfriend’s little sister and I’ve no clue where she found it. She does, however, have the most impeccable taste. If I ever figure it out, I’ll do a whole post JUST on this hat so you can all go get one :)

    Happy New Year!

    Well, the champagne wasn’t flowing but the intimate gathering of family and friends was more than warm enough to compensate for the lack of alcoholic drinks during our yearly family New Year celebration. Likewise, I wish you and your family the best this 2010. I’m looking forward to reading more of your entertaining blogs and trying out your recipes. Cheers!
