Crab-Crackin' New Year

We rang in the new year with a giant feast at my parents' house. On the menu: King crab, steak, prawns, clam chowder, crusty bread, and jello salad. Not a veggie to be seen, ahem. The lack of green food was a total oversight but I decided to think of our meal as a symbol of our coming prosperity in 2011. This may or may not be because of the books I've been reading about ancient China.

With three years under our belts, I'm officially declaring Crab-Crackin' New Year a Walker family tradition.

It may take me a while to get back into the swing of blogging. I hope you'll be patient with me. Thoughts of resolutions and the new year have been making me melancholy and quiet. But there are plenty of things to talk about on this space and I'll get there eventually. I have a new header to make and house pictures to post. Plus, I've missed you. I'll be back in the swing of things soon, I promise.

Happy New Year/January/Monday Everyone!

Food sounds delicious - even without something green. Jello counts as a fruit right ;) so you have your fiber there.

Can't wait to see your house, your floors and what stain you chose! I will be really jealous of your floors, just a warning. Also, I have about 10, 001 goals and resolutions. :p

That looks and sounds delightful. It almost makes me wish we didn't have our New Year's Eve fondue tradition...
