Roast & Toast NYE

We spent New Year’s Eve this year co-host­ing a potluck din­ner at Jason and Liz’s place in Park Slope. Here is a lit­tle video that I put together:

We served roast beef to twen­ty peo­ple, drank cham­pale, and made some res­o­lu­tions that we prob­a­bly won’t keep. More below the fold, includ­ing some of my and Lisa’s photos.

John's meat
Lisa took this excel­lent pho­to of me about to carve my stand­ing rib – six bones, 13.5 lbs. (before we dry aged it and cooked it). It tast­ed like buttah.

This is what din­ner for 20 or so looks like.

jordans temp: 92
Fun with the probe ther­mome­ter, which, inci­den­tal­ly, is the best inven­tion ever.

Jason out­did him­self, tarp­ing in the back deck, and bor­row­ing his brother’s propane heater.
