Happy Happy, Joy Joy!!!

Welcoming in a new year has always been a special night for the Chef and I. We had a few bottles of bubbly iced up for New Years Eve and as we are now settling in to our nice Irish home, we decided to spend an evening alone by the fire (with the children all nestled, asleep in their beds) give Chef the night off and eat the most wonderful 'present' we had received from one of our next door neighbors.
A few evenings ago, our neighbor Eddie stopped over with 3 dozen oysters that he had just picked himself in Clarinbridge (Galway) where is is from. (only a few miles from us).
His gift (which was received with an outburst of joy) was accompanied by a very nice bottle of Hennessy Cognac too. Ron, is really starting to 'feel' the Irishness of people now, and I am thinking he is going to find it much easier to fit in. We introduced him to his first taste of Hot Brandy and he was feeling no pain!

Regarding the bubbly, the Mumm was nice but our favourite still is the Veuve Clicquot!
Happy New Year to all our friends and family,
That is all the WiseWords I have for tonight!
