Count me among those 'boring adults' who would much rather have a nice dinner at home on New Year's Eve than battling crowded bars or waiting for a table at a restaurant. I've done all of the above and option Nice Dinner is, hands down, the best one. But it's still a night to celebrate. After all, it's the end of one year and the beginning of another and, ideally, you've got a little more time to prepare a meal than a normal weekday night. So how about something a little different? A crunchy crostini appetizer? A little surf and turf, maybe?
