Day 1

Ah, January. Here you are. We've met before, but you look a bit different this time. A little older, a little wiser. Maybe you've added a few pounds? Mmm hmm. Sounds like someone else I know. January, you're in for a new experience this year. I've got some trips planned, a lot of hard work to get through, and lots of fun to have. I hope you're ready! You should probably buckle up, this might get bumpy.

So, New Year's Eve was great. We had 15 people here for dinner. Thanks to Martine's borrowed table we had enough room for everyone. All the cooking for a day and a half was worth it. Matthew's creme brulee was amazing. He made the custard the night before so all he had to do was caramelize some sugar when it was time for dessert. It was a big hit. Definitely something he's going to be goaded into making again just for the two of us. After dinner we headed to Grand Army Plaza just blocks away to watch the fireworks.

What did you do for New Year's Eve? Was it fun? Ready to get your feet wet in 2008? Resolutions? I'm trying to be a more peaceful person... who weighs a little less, too.

We built a bonfire, even though it was like 140 degrees here in Miami, and roasted marshmallows with the kids. Made it up until midnight too (not the kids, just us)!
