    Lunar New Year?
    USDA Prime hanger steak, very rare due to lack of patience, baked russet potato with mounds of butter. Some random red wine.

    January 31?
    A nice champagne in a Costco sort of way
    Don't remember the food, if any.

    Ah, I wondered why you ate beef as rare as mine.

    But there's patience.

    Why do you not want to make lettuce wraps again?

    Our New Year's meal consisted many 15 peso tacos & fresh made ceviche

    I basically "ate" my pillow on NYE. It was the end of our fiscal year and we had done a conference call / deal closing the night before that ended at 2:45 AM on NYE day. Back up at 7AM and finished the last deal at 8PM.

    (Hey diver90 - shut up and quit whining... I'm just sayin')
