Who Stayed In and What Did You Make For NYE?

Mrs. Sippi and I decided a nice dinner and a fireplace was the perfect way to spend NYE.
I came up with crawfish etouffee smothered steak with roasted white asparagus and potatoes (with rosemary garlic seasoning).
Some nice wine, a glass or two of port to wash it down and champagne to celebrate the new year.
So what did you guys do??
We did it down and dirty. Picked up Popeye's chicken and made homemade french fries and homemade mac & cheese to go with, along with green beans to make us feel like we were having SOMETHING healthy :)
No way I'm braving the masses tonight. I've got a nice port in hand, with chicken curry and a wheat berry apple beet salad on the way. Made a few panna cottas: coffee, almond, and anise-champagne. It's a night to indulge after my insane fitness/work schedule :) Hope you and Mrs. Sippi have a fantastic eve!
Another cold here. Not much in the cupboards, but I was able to put together one of my comfort foods from childhood: salmon and peas in white sauce on toast. That and a couple of shots of bourbon and I was asleep by 10:30 (although awakened by honking horns at midnight). Happy New Year to you all.
We always stay in on Amateur Night...
