New Year's Eve kind of snuck up on me this year. After such a hectic holiday, we don't have anything special planned. This has never been one of my favorite holidays, unless we're somewhere warm like Brazil all dressed in white. New Year's Eve is always a lot of fun when we're there. Here, it's usually too cold, everything is unbelievably overpriced, and don't even get me started on Times Square. I'd rather do just about anything than celebrate New Year's Eve there. Last year, we didn't do much either. I was pregnant and happy to stay home. Daniel, these pork banh mi meatballs and The Hangover made it one of my best ones yet.
Friends invited us over for ropa vieja in Ft. Greene tonight, but since our regular babysitter is on another coast at the moment, it looks like we're staying in. Now I need to think of something fun to make. Any suggestions? I have a few bars of dark chocolate and a fridge full of fruit, so there will definitely be a big pot of fondue for dessert.
What are your plans for New Year's Eve? I'd love to hear!
