New Year's Eve Preparations

Well the temperature here is brisk but manageable as they say.

Manageable if you're a polar bear, anyways it has warmed up to 9 degrees F but will rapidly head towards 0F tonight.

The mother-in-law has arrived and preparations for a traditional Russian New Year's Eve feast and celebration proceed apace.

Greenery has been cut from trees and brought in and presents are wrapped and ready fro their midnight release. The kids are planning to stay awake to greet the new year - we'll see how that goes.

The house is being cleaned until it sparkles and the table will be set.

Winter salad, a rather labor intensive delectable is already being made. As are other appetizers and traditional Russian dishes are also being prepared. Champagne is chilling.

As the centerpiece for tonight's table, I'm doing a standing rib roast - first time doing one of those, so wish me luck as it needs to be perfect.

May you all enjoy a fantastic New Year's celebration as we say goodbye to 2017, and have a peaceful and prosperous 2018.
