It's 12:30 on New Year's Eve, and I have to think about dinner. Of course, at 12:30 on any given day, I'm thinking about dinner, but today is special.
Rather than try to make a reservation at a restaurant somewhere where it will be loud, smoky and obnoxious, I will probably just cook something really good at home. On a recent trip to California, Corina and I checked out the Korbel Winery, and I came away with a very nice bottle of champagne (Le Premier). We sat around on their patio eating California-ish sandwiches and sipping champagne. It was a lunch made in heaven! So, it may be time to uncork that baby.
As for food choices, I'm not sure what to choose. I have to go to the store shortly, so I'll be taking some inspiration from my friends. Chicken? Fish? Pork? (We did that yesterday.) Veal? Lamb? Oh, I know! Buffalo steak!
As for sides, I'm partial to asparagus, but I did pick some brussels sprouts from the backyard yesterday, and boy, were they wonderful!
Or, I could get a suitcase of sliders from White Castle...
