New Year's Eve Dinner - 12/31/2017

I have some bolognese from a couple nights ago, so I'll make a fresh batch of pappardelle to go with it. Green salad on the side.

First Night festivities are in town, but it's way too cold to go out and participate. I think it got up to 10 F today.

T-bone steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms, baked sweet potato.
Munchies - crackers, smokey bacon cheese ball, olives (green and black, kalamata for me), pickles

We're having finger foods tonight.
- Greek salad dip
- Spinach and artichoke dip with salad shrimp
- Toasted baguette slices
- Kielbasa bites with honey mustard

Our town holds a Scottish Walk on New Year's Eve at 4:30 pm. We've been a few times, but it's 27 degrees outside right now and it will only get colder as the sun goes down, so we'll miss it this year.

I have no idea. We were supposed to go to our friends' house which is a New Years tradition many years in the making. However, so many circumstances made it not feasible this year.

And I am waiting to hear from my BIL whether he is coming over tonight or not.

I will just drool over everyone else's food for awhile!

No formal dinner for us tonight. We typically have an array of appetizers and champagne on NYE that starts early and runs into midnight.

Since 2009, we've had a New Year's Eve tradition we call "Butterfest." Basically, any seafood that can be dipped in melted butter.

This year's Butterfest menu:
  • Crab legs
  • Lobster tails
  • Shrimp
  • Riced cauliflower
  • Salad

I like the sound of that

I like the sound of Butterfest, too. I used to do a thing called Meatfest on my birthday every year. Similar health values -- probably worse, actually.

Tonight, it is all finger foods. I'm making that ubiquitous queso dip, but using the recommended ALDI version of Velveeta. Cheddar stuffed jalepeño poppers. Fruits and veggies to munch on. Some Prosecco for a mid-night toast.
