Happy New Year!

A lovely New Year's Eve with dear friends and dear family...and Moscato di Asti (which, as sissy says, is like alcoholic Sprite--but sooo tasty) and Faycat's incredible--something--I can't recall the name--I'll get back to you--with a creamy rice-pudding-like filling of faro and orange flower water, among other ingredients, with a sweet crust that managed to be both light and dense...sublime. I made chocolate gelato, which froze like a chocolate rock, but when tempered, became pretty yummy. A made up a fire in the fireplace. Pippin nosed around hopefully for brie bits. Dr. Frizzle stuffed his cheeks with carrots and yogurt nuts. Then I fell asleep face-down on the rug. Happy New Year!

p.s. "pastiera napoletana," as Faycat commented. Check out her ordeal here, but I can personally attest to its utter deliciousness.

Pastiera Napoletana. I'm still having nightmares. I just posted about my ordeal.
