New Year’s Eve

In the midst of holiday parties, my husband and I decided to celebrate New Year’s Eve with a movie and dinner for just the two of us. We walked down to the Balboa, our neighborhood theater, to see “Charlie Wilson’s War” which we really enjoyed. (FYI – the next day we went back to the Balboa to see “Juno” – great movie). Before we left for the movie, I prepared our starter course – mushroom caps filled with blue cheese – which then required only simple reheating. This course was served with a bottle of Champagne Taittinger. The main course was the most delicious crab we ever had, purchased the prior day in Pillar Point near Half Moon Bay. We dipped this into unsalted butter being warmed by gracefully shaped porcelain warmers. This was accompanied by a caesar salad, a recipe I found in Epicurious. Our wine for this course was our favorite “house Chardonnay” – Rodney Strong Chalk Hill. We waited to have dessert with our dear friends and neighbors, Nanci and Andrew.
