    It's been an evening of eating and drinking, a good way to
    end the new year. We sat by the fire and had a few glasses
    of a nice un-oaked Chardonnay that went very nicely with our
    canap├ęs. We had some crackers with cream cheese and red
    pepper jelly and I had poached some jumbo tiger shrimp and
    made up a dipping sauce with mayonnaise, curry powder,
    garlic, lime zest and lime juice. Our main course was
    grilled beef tenderloin steaks and asparagus, with a bottle
    of Cote de Rhone. Dessert was a maple cottage pudding,
    followed by a cup of espresso and a glass of Gran Marnier. I
    didn't want to crack open a bottle of Champagne after all
    that other wine, so we have some cute little bottles of
    Troken Henkle to ring in the New Year.

    Hope you are all having a great evening.

    Happy New Year to you!
    That sounded a perfect dinner to see out the old year. May you enjoy
    many more to come.
