- For brunch, an old standby: Ina Garten's Challah French Toast
- Blackberry-Mustard Glazed Ham - easy and very good, though the sauce thickened a bit more than I would have liked it to
- Roasted root vegetables, also to Ina's recipe
- Potato and Portobello Mushroom Gratin - this was all right, but might be improved by a touch of cream
And that's that! New Years Eve we will probably keep simple, as people with young children tend to do.
