NYE 2008

NYE 2008

Our New Year’s Eve plans were perfect....a multiple course dinner with great friends, and a champagne toast at midnight  Simple, yet delightful.

New Year’s Eve was a food fest.  I wish I had the menu to scan.  We had something like 10 courses of food.  Aimee had the great idea to hire chefs to cook this year (after last year’s efforts, it seemed much easier to have someone else do the cooking).  Monica and her husband cooked a delicious 33 course meal.  Not really, but it sure felt that way.    Jodee landed in a food coma.  I think she was ‘out’ on Aimee’s couch for 3 days.

On our trip to Italy a few years ago, Ignacio and I learned that they had food feasts in Pompeii (I believe), and that they actually had a vomitorium so that people could eat and eat, go throw up in the special room, and then come back for more.  If Aimee and Scott do any remodeling, maybe they should consider a vomitorium.  

It was a beautiful New Year’s Eve.  And as always, I consider myself lucky to have such wonderful people in my life.
