New Year's Eve...

We had a very nice evening last night.  Debbie and I, our neighbors Jimmy and Michelle, another neighbor Paula C., and Jimmy's sister Jackie, all got together for a luscious meal.  We all contributed to its making and to it's destruction.  The menu:
champagne and Chambord 
broiled scallops wrapped in bacon
southwestern crabcakes with homemade tarragon tartar sauce
scalloped potatoes
prime rib roasted with parsnips, carrots, potatoes, and onions
fresh berries (blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries) in zabaglione sauce
all the wine we could drink
For some reason I can't quite put my finger on, I didn't have much appetite this morning!

I stayed up to the ungodly hour of 10:30, but my head was in danger of hitting the table so I went home (and I drove Paula back down the hill as well; she was also ready to go home).  But Debbie, Jimmy, Michelle, and Jackie rang in the new year, playing cards until 12:30.  By that time I was sound asleep!
