New Year’s Eve Smörgåsbord

We decided to stay in for New Year’s Eve, so I loaded up on some goodies from around town: Bourbon chicken liver mousse and pheasant pâté from Chop, some cheeses, olives and bread (a baguette and a ¼ loaf of Pugliese) from Pastaworks, Matiz octopus in olive oil that I had picked up from Oso Market, a little Jamón Ibérico from Zupan’s, and some homemade pickled carrots and golden beets.

With the smörgåsbord, I had the Not The Stoic from Deschutes. As the night progressed, I had Upright’s Coffee Stout followed by Epic Brewing’s Big Bad Baptist.
