When our kids were teenagers and they wanted to go out on New Years Eve, and we wanted to stay home and be available for them in case they needed us to ... call them a cab, we started making a very special year end dinner for ourselves. One of us would make the first course and choose a wine to go with it, and the other would make the next, and back to the first one to make the third, and so on until the New Year.

We were going to do the same thing when 2006 was becoming 2007, but we had company and we decided to included them in these plans, then another group of friends from the mountains were stranded by snow that closed I-70, and they came to our house for New Year's Eve. Each person made one of the great many small courses we had that night. It was so much fun, we missed the fireworks downtown at midnight. We've made this a traditional event on the last day of the year ever since.
