Happy New Year!


Mike and I continued our little tradition of a 4-people dinner on New Year's eves -- we had our friends Charles and Damien over. And again we followed the traditional meal progression - soup course, seafood course, meat course, salad, and dessert.

Soup: Mushroom cream soup (from the Gourmet Cookbook)
Seafood: Soy-citrus scallops on a bed of soba noodle salad (from the Gourmet Cookbook)
Meat: Poached scallion and ginger chicken with white rice (from Kylie Kwong)

Salad: Jicama avocado and orange salad (from the Gourmet Cookbook)
Dessert: my friend Charles brought a cake from the famed Yeh's bakery in Flushing, NY

We had a 1998 vintage Dom Perignon Champagne
For the meat course, we had the red Burgundy; for the seafood course we had the Reisling.

Happy New Year!

I am jealous! Seriously, can I get myself and Greg invited to this for next new year's eve? We get to enjoy three lawyers gossiping about other lawyers from other firms that we never heard of...ha!

Happy New Year! Of course you are welcome :) and you are right -- there is so much lawyerly gossip, from salary and bonus levels, to firm cultures, etc. It never gets old!

At least you enjoy lawyer talk, I get interested only when it's about salary (i.e. money) or perks they get...

Ok, good, put us down for the next new year's eve, we are rsvping now! :)

Happy 2008!
