OUR ANNUAL NEW YEAR'S EVE dinner with a couple of old friends was postponed this year. It's the sort of thing happens more readily as we grow older; nothing to be done but accept it.
In any case a delicious dinner: roast lamb, pink and full of flavor under its mustard glaze, serious long-stemmed broccoli, fine steam-sauteed potatoes. And Claire's perfect cheesecake for dessert. Happy New Year!
