NYF 2003

Another NYE, another NYF! I love everything about NYF, except maybe for cleaning the formal silverware afterwards. Truly, though, that's a small price to pay for the fun of planning a menu with no worries about money, the fun of cooking it, and the treat of sharing a great meal and a comfy evening at home with good friends. I only would have changed one thing about this year's - i would have granted the Leckmans health-for-the night, as they weren't feeling well and had to cancel at the last moment. Menu below!

It all looks so lovely.

And don't forget to polish the formal silver with Crest toothpaste--not only does it remove tarnish, it prevents it!
