Cynthia’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve Celebration

   Hallie the Rock Star

A fun-filled evening was had by all in our little family. We stayed home, cooked dinner, frosted cupcakes, watched old family videos, and let the kids watch the ball drop in NYC at 10pm. For dinner we had pan-fried tilapia and parmesan risotto. I’ve decided after several attempts that risotto isn’t worth the hype. Give me a regular rice pilaf any day rather than ladling in hot stock slowly for 45 minutes. Yawn.
The highlight was the chocolate peanut butter cupcakes. But be warned….these cupcakes, like anything peanut butter, require you to have a large glass of milk standing by lest you get called by a radio station and have to answer the trivia question, “Who shot Alexander Hamilton in that famous duel?”. Answer without milk: “Ew-un Buh”. Don’t let this happen to you. Other than that, these are amazing cupcakes, and that’s coming from a non-peanut-butter lover. Happy New Year! hallie frostinig cupcakesladling broth into risotto december fun 005peanut butter frosting on chocolate cupcakes

Sign me up for another batch of these cupcakes and we still have half the batch left.

Love the peanut butter frosting.

I could have done without the review of my fashion choices from 1990, but the kids enjoyed it all the same.

Look at your fancy new blog layout. How did you do that? It isn't LiveWriter, right?

We spent our new years eve driving back from Spokane with a nice puke stench thanks to Thomas' upchuck in the car earlier in the drive home.

I so need one of Ina's pb cupcakes.
