New Years Eve Dinners in?
#16
We're making cioppino tonight.  My mom bought the clams, mussels, scallops, calamari, crab, lobster, and halibut.  I'm supplying the witty conversation and out of control children.  And I'm going to make some fon-don't (or fondue, whatever you want to call it) for the kids (and by kids, I mean my husband.)

I also plan on drinking a glass of champagne tonight and going to bed at 11:45.  I'm old.  I can't make it to midnight anymore.

We've got some friends coming in from out of town, so we'll be hosting.

<b>L'Entrée</b>

<FONT color=#000000><b>Le </b><b>Digestif</b></FONT>
Christian Brothers brandy and retire to the Gentleman's Lounge of the WRC Estate (formerly known as the Carriage House, my wife tends to park her car in the Gentleman's Lounge) for a puff of a Domenican Arturo Fuente Cameroon Churchill.  The gentleman guest is not a pipe smoker, so I'll save the hand-blended pipe tobacco for another day.

So sweet.  You really didn't have to go to all that trouble for me.  We'll be there at 8:30.
