Been pretty low key around here mostly due to health issues so our last holiday will be nice and gentle.

We had smoked Alaska salmon, baked potato, steamed pencil-thin asparagus (saw it at the market on Tuesday and couldn't resist), iced tea and a tiny piece of chocolate cake for dessert.

Yummy. Yummy. And the best part is there is still enough salmon for another meal. We showed great restraint.

We had spaghetti Alfredo and a tossed, green salad. We'll be having some bubbly closer to midnight.

OMGoodness....fabulous sounding NYE meals! I'm sure there will be more to drool over...

Low key here tonight, and I'm good with that. Just had a small bowl of chili that has been simmering on the stove all afternoon, and fixin' to make some jalapeno cheddar corn muffins to have with the chili for NYD dinner manana with my bachelor brother. Steamed freshly made tamales will accompany tomorrow's dinner...I'm trying to keep my hands off of them till then.

Happy New Year's Eve everyone....be safe, and I hope you all enjoy your evening!

As for my little tribe, my 3 youngest have spent the day grazing on the usual meat, cheese and cracker tray and contorting themselves into knots with many games of twister. I've been doing research all day so, I'm no fun :P. My husband has taken charge of the food festivities though and has been busy, for several hours, with ribs and fried chicken. I have no idea what he's planning, lol. We will most likely see the new year in with a TV countdown after watching a movie or two. The kids are watching 'Epic' now. Very low key around here.


Happy New Year all :)
MichelleMarie, I'm so glad to see you jump right into the nightly dinner thread here. This is the perfect place to get your feet wet in this community. Welcome again, and a Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.

We had small baked potatoes loaded with broccoli, Colby cheese, and sour cream. Saved our appetites for the cheese, fruit, and sausage plate. Glasses of wine, too. Happy New Year everyone!

We watched the Orange Bowl today (Clemson vs Oklahoma instead of a movie. I always thought the Orange Bowl was on NYDay. Too many bowls I guess. The game was see-saw back and forth close the first half.

Dinner was tasty. Pesto marinated skewered chicken pieces and marinated roasted baby tomatoes baked alongside until they blistered. Re- painted the chicken skewers because they seemed a bit dry, Greens salad with diced veggies. Actually pretty healthy (unplanned). Then we dug into bowls of custard rice pudding We made cranberry / sparky water cocktails served in champagne flutes for toasting in the New Year (wheeee),

Happy New Year y'all.
