What will you be doing New Year's Eve? Last year I asked if you might be trekking to Times Square to shiver and watch the ball drop, or heading out to local bars to toast with friends.
This year, it's more likely than not that you'll find yourself at home with family or a few close friends. Staying safe, celebrating the end of one hell of a challenging year to put it very, very mildly... and making a wish for easier and healthier days in 2021.
We loved letting our kids stay up with us - most years when they were little they barely had their eyes open by the time the ball dropped! But we had fun: games, old movies like The Wizard of Oz, snacks, and sparkling cider.
So even if you're staying home, odds are you'll be up late. And then sleeping in.
That's the perfect kind of morning to have a make-ahead breakfast waiting for you in the kitchen.
Whether it's a basket of muffins, a moist coffee cake, or a casserole to pop in the oven, you'll be so happy to have most of the work already done!
