For the last few years, we’ve been feasting our way through New Year‘s Eve with Alaskan King Crab legs, sourdough bread, baked potatoes, salad and lots of good wine. And we do it all comfortably cocooned at home! Sometimes we invite another couple. Sometimes it’s just the two of us. But it’s always a perfect & stress free event. I lay newspapers on the table to collect all the shells and detritus so it’s easy cleanup even with the good china. Then we watch a movie & eat dessert. Some years we make it to midnight. Some years we don’t. But it’s always a low-key, high deliciousness event. No restaurant mark up, no need to dress up, no drunk drivers to worry about, no false frivolity, no stress at all.
Welcome to this brand new decade. May this year be filled wonderful new people & moments and also with comfortable old friends and favorite rituals… just like our low stress New Year.
