New Years Eve

Good morning! I hope you are well, if you are like me than you are still on "Christmas Break", enjoying family and friends and trying to not to eat too many tasty treats. So far I have not been too successful in the tasty treat department, but once tomorrow comes I will be back to my regular routine. 

I have to be honest, I am not a party person. I prefer small gatherings of close family and friends enjoying good food over the dinner table, laughing and talking for hours.

So tonight, I will be doing just that, talking, eating, and laughing with family and friends hoping to make it to midnight. What about you? Will you be out at a large party, enjoying a quiet dinner with friends, or something else entirely?

Whatever your plans I hope you have a safe and happy celebration! I will see you here next year! Happy New Year!

If you would like a little chocolate this evening, try this recipe for a Bailey's Chocolatini from Once Upon a Chocolate Life.
