It’s that time again — when we prepare to ring in the new by celebrating the best of the past year. So this week, we give you some of our favorite stories from 2006.

That 2005 wardrobe? You’ve outgrown it.
In fact, last December, you pounded enough bûche de Noël and foie gras to render your entire closet obsolete.
So now, once again, you’re doing damage control by busting out some absurd New Year’s diet that replaces carbs with wheat grass and liquids with grapefruit pulp and counts wood chips as a major food group.
Whatever. Why not just eat something healthy that actually tastes good? Something like, say, blueberry chicken sausage? The newfangled invention is made by Kayem Foods (the Chelsea sausage company started by Polish émigré Kazimierz Monkiewicz as a pushcart operation in 1909), and for any breakfast-loving calorie watcher, it’s nothing short of a boon.
The all-natural links ring in at a mere 60 calories each and are full of smoky ground chicken breast, wild blueberries, and a hint of pure Vermont maple syrup. They’re a little sweet, a little salty, quite juicy, and still savory enough to qualify as meaty.
Sure, they sound odd, but they taste delicious.
Besides. You were just about to put yourself on a wood chip diet.
