Happy New Year!

We hosted a New Years Eve party last night for some of our favorite neighborhood friends. Everyone had a blast -- they must have; we still had familes here at 1:30 this morning! I can't believe some of the youngest of the Kenilworth (our neighborhood) Clan managed to rally that long -- this cul-de-sac is gonna be filled with some sleepy headed kiddos later on today!

I wish I had taken pictures of everything we served, but I only managed to snag one of the tartare. Between handing out the party hats, serving up cocktails, and pulling hors deourves out of the oven, things were a little hectic. Here's what was on the menu:

Tenderloin Sandwiches with Rosemary Horseradish Aoili
Pizzettas with Fontina, Tomato, Proscuitto, and Basil
Tuna Tartare with Wasabi on Sesame Crackers (as pictured above)

My neighbors chipped in and brought Artichoke & Crab Dip, Spanakopita, Mini Quiches, and Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Sauce. Everything was so delicious and suffice it to say - no one went hungry!

Soooooo happy we have leftovers and I don't need to cook tonight -- I've spent the better part of the day so far sweeping up "2008" confetti and picking streamers out of my carpet...but that goes with the partythrowing territory.

Back to cooking tomorrow.
