Happy New Year Fingernails

Al and I went to Surla’s for New Year’s Eve dinner, and it was wonderful.  It started with a rectangular plate of butternut squash soup (complete with candied walnut!) and a baby spinach salad with pomegranate seeds, dried cranberries, and pickled red onions.  Then a pasta course of gnocchi with shitake mushrooms, followed by the main course.  Al had the prime rib, and I had the lamb combo, which was a rack of 4 ribs, and a lamb shank covered with a chopped tomato – rosemary sauce and served on saffron risotto.  Wow!  Both were delicious! This was followed with a white chocolate and coconut cake and a plate with a piece of nut brittle, a lemon cookie, and a chocolate truffle.  Was I stuffed!  I brought all of the rack and most of the risotto home with me and ate it in a lamb chop sandwich yesterday, yum!

I painted my fingernails for the holiday and since I was wearing mostly black with some white in my skirt, I thought I would go bright and red – well reddish orange!  This is Finger Paints Vermillion $ Painting for the base, and Konad white for the stars.  I used Bundle Monster image plate BM21 that I got from Amazon.

Fireworks for New Year's Eve


About sunflowerswank

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
