It's Just Another New Years Eve 2011,Tropical Pom Rum Runner and Happy Birthday!

Tropical Pom Rum Runner 2011 Happy New Year Cocktail

Raspberry Champagne Cocktail  Last Year 2010 Farewell Drink!

Lots of fireworks in our backyard for tonight, we had lots leftover from the 4th of July that lit up the sky!




This Year is a milestone for my handsome dear husband, it's his 40th birthday on New Years Eve...It's so hard to plan a party. Dangerous to drive during the holiday, family all in NY. So, here's are agenda for the BIG 40!!  Starting with breakfast.


I made scrambled eggs with sharp cheddar, bacon on a homemade crossaint by evilshenanigans. Then I made his favorite potatoes,  Italian style homefries on the side  for his birthday breakfast...

Raspberry Ricotta Cheesecake
 This is for later tonight, so we will be spending the day at Seaworld, but the cheesecake is waiting for us in the refrigerator. We will see penquins, dolphins, of course Shamu. One of our favorite themeparks here in Florida.


 Later tonight come home after having dinner somewhere in Seaworld  have our dessert, then build a cozy fire in the yard, shoot of some fireworks off to bring in the New Year in and make a toast... a full day for us!  Hope you have all have a Safe, Healthy  Happy 2011!!!!

Outside roaring  firepit... Have a great evening everyone~ Cheers~!!!!

Holy moly, that cocktail looks amazing! Happy birthday to your hubby! The day you've planned sounds like so much fun! I miss Seaworld :( And great job on making the homemade croissants to go with your awesome breakfast! I've only made croissants in culinary school, but haven't quite convinced myself to go to all that effort alone in my kitchen :) Happy New Year to your whole family, Claudia!
