Finally, New Year’s Eve has arrived!
2011 has drawn to an end, and we’re getting ready to bring in 2012.
Make sure to have a safe night and call a taxi if you have too much too drink.
With this entry, Post a Day 2011 and its challenge comes to a close for Beaux. A few exceptions exist, but I have literally updated every single day of this year or at least created the equivalent number of posts. Writing 365 posts with a daily deadline is not nearly as easy as it might sound. Then again, I noticed that toward the end, I began writing shorter and shorter posts, and sometimes my posts were actually updates that let everyone know that there wouldn’t be a post that day.
Either way, I’m proud of myself for having taken the challenge and made the effort to meet my daily deadline, especially since my blog had a dedicated theme of eating.
But what about 2012? Will I continue the Post a Day challenge? Will there be a new challenge offered? I’m not totally sure! I really have enjoyed writing every day, though my major concern has been over the dwindling quality of my posts.
Also, did you guys know that it’s still technically Christmas? That’s right! Today’s the Seventh Day of Christmas. The official end of Christmas will be in just a few days with the celebration of Epiphany, the oldest holiday continuously celebrated by the Church since ancient times!
I haven’t decided what exactly I’m going to do to celebrate the New Year, but I should probably get on that. I’m not really keen on going out anywhere tonight, though I may end up doing so anyway.
Tomorrow, I’m planning on having a boiled egg with vinegar. The idea for this recipe came to me when I was trying to go to sleep. Many nights, I lie awake in bed, hungry, because delicious ideas for recipes begin floating into my mind and bugging me. It’s a delicious nightmare!
Anyway, since poached eggs require a bit of vinegar, and vinegar and eggs go well together, I figured the same will apply for boiled eggs and various other styles of eggs. Plus, an egg is a symbol of prosperity and new beginnings- a perfect treat to have on New Year’s Day!
Have an egg-cellent New Year’s!
