Vincent's Party

On Saturday, Kym, Neilson and I went to Vincent's famous Christmas party. When asked the secret of a great event, he said "You need at least 50 people." I would also add you need pepperoni, which he always has. His numbers were down a little this year because of the snow storm, but it was still a great event. He sends best wishes to all.

Yesterday, Neilson and I went to visit his step family, or technically his former step family, in Rye. There were a ton of little kids, including 5 who had flown in from England for Christmas. (Along with their parents). We all took advantage of the snow by going to the park for some sledding. It was the first time I had gone in years. I have a welt on my leg from a small collision, but it was worth it.

A belated happy birthday to Jane

I know many of us texted, phoned and facebooked birthday wishes to Jane on Saturday, but I also wanted to wish our not-so-little Jane a happy 18th year here as well.

Thanksgiving in Brooklyn

I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. As you all know, it is by far my least favorite holiday, if not my least favorite day of the year. This year things went a little better, however, because Neilson's aunt and uncle decided to order food in. Let's just say this is all for the good. They skipped the turkey, etc., and got food from an Italian deli, and we were all happy with the meatballs and broccoli rabe.

We were told to bring cookies. I think they just meant to buy some, but somehow the thought of bringing a box of store bought cookies was really depressing, and I made some chocolate chips. Which was a good thing, as this was one of the other dessert options:

In case you can't read the label, it is vegan, organic, kosher coconut cream pie. (To be fair, there was also a very tasty apple crumble. Not as good as homemade, but still pretty good).
