New Year's Eve
Typically on New Year's Eve, Dave and I go to a friend's house; he has an "early" party, which runs from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., and they always serve chili and salad, with bread and champagne. This year, although we were really looking forward to going, we felt like the roads just weren't good enough to make the trek to the other side of Boulder.
Instead, we decided to cook up our own chili, and added the bread, champagne, and salad, and ate in front of the fire.
I set out the good flatware and linen napkins and David built the fire, and it was really nice.
Molly and Lucille, of course tried to get in on the act.
And the chili turned out great, as the condition of our plates attested!
