So, what is your meal on this New Year's Eve?

Do tell!

As for myself, I don't know yet. Family is away, and popular restaurants will be packed, maybe less accommodating for single diners. I'll figure something out.

  1. I bought some epoisses and fourme from Murray's Cheese for tomorrow night.

    1. Just broiled chicken thighs, potatoes and a salad for dinner at 6ish. Later in the night we are having focaccia, hot sopresatta, mortadella, grilled scamorza and olives, all from Eataly. And of course some bubbly!

      1. Same thing every year. Caviar and champagne. Once a year, every year.

        1. starting off with a variety of cheeses, Istara, Humbolt Fog, Mimmiolette, mixed nuts, olives, vegetable crudite.
          Then many cocktails, pomegranite martinis, shots of tequila, Gin and Tonics and some beers.
          Then pulling out the lasagna, few pounds of fried chicken cutlets, garlic bread, roasted Brussel sprouts with pancetta, grilled endive and crumbled blue cheese salad.
          No desert as I feel like that just kills the mood and signals the end of a party. Will be about 10 of us.
