Happy New Year: 2010

It was a Dremel XBR 400 (with jig saw attachment) & DeWalt kind of day!

Today is the first day of the year, so why not tackle a project that's been out there for oh, five years or so. I removed a layer of particle board (formerly covered by carpet that was also removed) on the landing at the bottom of the stairs to the basement. All I have to say is the contractor who originally half-assed job this deserves the full Barton Fink wallpaper treatment at home.  Mission successful with the help of several other tools and some creative swearing.

Tom and I made Giada DeLaurentiis' amazing Beef Short Rib with Tagliatelle as a birthday treat for his brother Henry and our friend Harold. A lively dinner and good company to kick off the new year is a good thing.

I hope you cooked something amazing with and for people you love too.
