Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! We spent the evening with family playing games and watching movies while enjoying all kinds of delicious snacks. It was so nice to have time off work, and to spend it with friends and family. I was particularly excited for 2008 to come so that I could put up my new calendar.

It's even prettier in person! It puts a smile on my face every time I glance over at it. It's definitely helping me get through this first day back at work in a while.

And now a random question for all the readers out there:
I made a cheesecake (Tyler's Ultimate Cheesecake, actually, but without the lemon zest, because my husband is anti-citrus zest) and baked it in a water bath. I always surround the springform pan with foil when I do this to prevent water leaking into the cheesecake, and usually this works fine, however this time for some reason, there is a dark deposit of some kind on the pan that held the water. I'm assuming it is somehow from the foil, but I don't know, and I can't seem to get it off. So far, I've tried soap and water, comet with bleach, and baking soda. Any suggestions for getting my pan clean? Your ideas are much appreciated.

I love your calendar. And I'm sad to have missed the game-playing. Can we have a reprisal?

Emily- I am up for game playing most any time!

p.s. Brian got a new game for christmas, and he's pretty much dying to play it, so we should plan something.

The cake was great, but I have no idea on the pan. Good Luck.
