Check out this DVF “Shalom” dress. Hello to royal purple and short lengths, goodbye to no waistline that makes you look plump (or in this case, like a plum). Dresses like this are so tempting, as you imagine then sparkled up with gold jewels and tall heels and on the NYE dance floor. However, like NYE, this dress looks like it might over promise and under deliever. What do you think? Does the “Shalom” mean ‘hello’ or ‘goodbye’?

Need something quick and easy for a NYE party? We’ve always loved the flavors of chutneys – they taste fancy without a lot of effort. Take this app
and serve with Carr’s crackers
- 1 (8-ounce) round Brie or Camembert Cheese
- 1/2 cup mango or cranberry chutney
- 2 tablespoons dried currants
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cheese on cookie sheet and set aside.
In small heavy saucepan, combine chutney and currants. In small bowl, combine cornstarch, curry powder, and water and blend well until smooth. Stir into chutney mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Set aside to cool while Brie is baking.
Bake cheese for 10-15 minutes or until softened. Remove to serving plate and top with chutney mixture. Serve with toasted baguette slices, crackers, and pear slices.
