I need to pick up the last of the perishable ingredients for the menu tomorrow. I will probably roast the turkey breast and make the stuffing on Sunday. That way the turkey will be cold and easy to slice.
The cheese cake will also be made on Sunday so it it can chill overnight.
The salads and dips will be made Sunday or early Monday.

I have been fighting a cold, painful joints and it seems a bit overwhelmed. But I will give myself a break today and tomorrow by taking it easy if possible.

I want to make chicken soup later if I have everything I need.

I hope you feel better soon, mofet.

Since I have to work on NYE, we're having a little pre-New Year's party tonight. About 5 or 6 friends are coming over, so we're spending the day cleaning the house as if we don't really live here (per DW).

But for tonight, we're having a cheese and crackers platter, a crudite with spinach dip, shrimp cocktail, then a salad to start.

Then a baked ham, baked ziti, coleslaw, haricots vert, and mashed spuds.

The guests are bringing drinks and desserts, but we have mini cupcakes and a Seven Sisters for late coffee before everyone drives home in dense fog and rain.

Happy New Year a little early, everyone.

NYE will be a normal night for us (in bed by 11..) so, nothing special planned for dinner..

New Years Day will be a day of grazing through plates of meats and cheeses, chips and dips and probably, sweet/BBQ meatballs..
Of course there will be puddings and cake..

NYE we'll probably have a Filet Mignon dinner and be in bed with Ross and Jeannie by 11 pm....Haaaa...not even the same house.


I need to get to the store for some fresh greens and frozen black eye peas with a ham hock for NYD. Gotta have that in memory of my sweet southern Mama.



We'll watch the Rose Parade in the morning with a breakfast casserole of some kind.

I'm thinking about having a snacky kind of New Year's Eve while we watch movies and pop in now and then on New Year's Rockin' Eve. I have a bottle of prosecco in case we make it to midnight. If we don't, it will be for a bellini in the morning.

New Year's Day I'm thinking of making a German apple pancake with sausage for breakfast. Some neighbors are having a potluck open house starting at noon. I'm going to make deviled eggs topped with pickled mustard seeds for that. They're having hoppin' John and collards, so I don't have to make them We might have sandwiches or something else easy that night.

Glad you cleared THAT up...

Back to menu, it will just be me, and possibly a few neighbors -- I'm not driving ANYWHERE.

So far, I don't have a menu plan. I did see a big end-cap full of Little Smokies and Crescent Rolls dough at the store, and felt like I need some of that.
