New Year's Day Commentary

Post by sweetandsour » Fri Jan 01, 2021 9:07 am

On Dec 24 of the first year, Adam said "It's Christmas Eve". Then on the 31st Adam said "It's new years Eve". So then on Jan 1 Eve said, "yep, it's New Year's Day". And it's been that way ever since then.

So, last night we had a bottle of champagne, but forgot about it, and it remains unopened. Should we pop it today at lunch to go with peas and cornbread? Open it tonight? Or just save it for 12/31/2021.

I vote that you save it for next year. Second option is mimosas with a brunch if you have any OJ. I doubt champagne pairs well with peas and cornbread. Also don't forget to eat some greens with your peas and cornbread so you'll get some money this year. I bet you get at least 600.00 if you do right off the bat.

Wishing you and yours a very Blessed and happy 2021.

Thanks, and happy New year! I forgot about mimosas, they're normally not on my radar screen.

I have a coworker who gives me a bottle of champagne every Christmas. The last five of them are unopened. How long does that stuff keep?

As long as the cork lasts. Set them on their sides and rotate them every few months.

Or buy some caviar and enjoy them.

Your call.

My bottle may not be good, then. It's not been on it's side at all for the past couple years. I'll find out here in a bit. Mimosas and Seelbachs will just have to wait for another time.
