 new year's morning 
toonman makes a special breakfast
 of 
eggs onions and potatoes 

we usually 
finish up 
the previous night's
champagne 

this year 
 a friend came by early in the evening
 we had some lovely wine with her
shortly after she left
 the pizza arrived
 we put on a movie

i had me some lovely hugh jackman
toonman fell asleep 

his nap 
allowed him to stay awake
after
 the ball dropped

 me
 i went to bed pretty soon after midnight

 the champagne never got opened

 this morning
 toonman popped the cork
 on a bottle 
of
 veuve clicquot ponsardin grande dame 1998

 the event
 as you will see

  2. Too funny. We don't have the bubbly, but Mr. BFR always makes me bacon & basted eggs on New Years Day. One of fun traditions.

  3. Lovely. I haven't had a breakfast yet this morning, so my stomach started growling. I do believe I may go and cook myself some eggs now!

    Of course, one thing caught my eye that may not be the most important to others. Is that a FRUITCAKE tin on your counter? If not, it's probably cookies, but I like to imagine it's FRUITCAKE!

  8. I like the way you do things. I cooked pancakes and then made son go hiking with me almost 5 miles. Wore his little butt out.

  9. My mom, who will be 85 this month, opened a small bottle of champagne for she and my dad on New Year's eve and then forgot to drink it. So she and my daughter shared it on New Year's day. I stuck to the wine since champagne tends to make my head hurt after just a few sips. I'm weird like that...HA!

    Lovely breakfast tradition you have! Yum!
