It's my 50th New Year's Eve and though that seems like a milestone to be celebrated with festivities and fanfare, the truth of the matter is that for the past few years, I'm lucky to be awake at 10:00 never mind midnight. Our most recent New Year's Eves have become celebrations for two, early in the evening with some treats, a little wine and a movie.
To ring in 2012, we once again opted for a romantic evening at home and enjoyed some chili topped chevre, tangy blue cheese, garlic stuffed olives, a little prosciutto, savoury kelbasa, and a surprisingly robust Pinot Noir from Hahn Winery. Though we didn't make it to midnight in Kelowna, we watched the movie "Midnight in Paris". I think that counts, don't you?
