New Years Eve Recipes

 

While I enjoy the holidays, I do frequently find New Year’s to be a bit of a let down.

Though I must confess, last year New Year’s Eve was a wild bacchanalian affair.  We went to a 70’s party with our friends Peter and Patrice.  Everyone (except the 4 of us) were, to our surprise, in costume.  Somehow Peter’s brother had found out in advance that this soiree was a costumed event and he wore crazy polyester bell bottoms and stuffed a pair of gym socks in his pants to get that very bulgy 70’s look.

Nevertheless, we had a great time and danced into the early morning.  The revelry of a brilliant evening was broken a couple of hours later when I awoke at 6 AM to the sound of a snow plow grinding its machinery on the pavement for a good hour.

I’m planning something a bit less over the top this year –no dancing until 3:00 in the morning.  Though actually, I’m not planning anything at all, nor did I last year.  Here is my menu for dinner and maybe we’ll go out afterward, you never know!

diy sparkling beverage

Starters:
fig tapenade with walnut crackers
sun-dried tomato parsley pesto with sesame crackers

Salads:

Have a Happy New Year!
