I wish you all the best and good health for 2014, my friends!
We had a marvelous time in St. Lucia and Anse Chastanet was perfect as usual. I've blogged about it before, here and here.
But instead of a recipe to begin the year, I thought you might enjoy a short video I made of a new tradition at the hotel on New Year's Eve....kite lanterns. Perhaps you're familiar with them, but they were new to me; lo and behold, I found them at Amazon. You light a bit of cardboard beneath and the flame will inflate the paper kite to a point where it will lift right off...of course, you make a wish as you release it.
Imagine they ought to be used over water and with the wind in the right direction, but even those that blew back didn't cause a problem. Still, caution is advised, obviously.
Enjoy and I'll post a recipe in a few days.
