New Year's Food...what are YOU serving?

It's hard to believe New Year's is once again almost here!
Every year we host a game night for friends so we generally serve all kinds of appetizers and finger foods. I've not yet completed my list of goodies, so I thought I'd see what was on everyone else's menu first....

Hey jkath!!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!

BTW, I got your camera for Christmas. I still have to figure out all the settings though. Thanks for letting me know what you had. I love it!!

We are having New Years at sisters with her 50th b-day party. We'll be having hot wings, finger sandwiches, dips, fruit tray etc...
It should be fun, I hope!!

not sure yet if my bro and sil are going to babysit for us. wow! it'll be our first night out together, sans bambino, in almost 2 years.

i know we both want to go out for korean bbq, but that is a bit rushed, and we agreed that we want to really savor our evening. lots of courses, lots of glasses of wine, really slow it down and enjoy it. we may even have a conversation that doesn't include "get that out of your mouth" or "what's that smell? uh, oh, did you bring the wipes?".

Well it is probably just my wife and myself and the baby this year unless we decide to take the grandparents up on their babysitting offer. I think we will probably stay home and make some cheese fondue.

Glad you like the camera!

Word to the wise: buy extra batteries!!!!!!!!!
(Mine ran out just as we arrived for the big Christmas Eve get together and I didn't get to take many photos!)

You'll love it, I promise!


I forgot to mention what was on my list so far - whoops!
I'm dipping a ton of stuff in white and dark chocolate with my new chocolate dipper (like pretzels, nuts, dried fruits, teddy grahams, etc...)
Also, lots of different cheeses, veggies, and probably a couple of Paula Deen's holiday pecan recipes.

Here's a quickie dip that is really good, btw:

1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp sour cream
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix

Mix together & enjoy!

We'll be home w/ the baby (2 years 'till we get out, bucky?! ) I think we'll get the stuffed salmon we like from costco, a little shrimp tray for hubby, and fruit & cheeses. New Years Day is pizza & hoagies.

I usually just do the basic gruyer, ementhaller, standard fondue, and sometimes I even cheat and buy the already made cheese fondue (they sell it in the cheese counter at my super market) that comes in a pouch and you just cut it open and heat in your fondue pot. Maybe I will do something a little different this year though. I will let you know if I find/try something good jkath

We've been invited to two parties on the 30th... but nothing on New Years Eve. I think we'll stay home and be quiet and calm this year. Maybe, we'll make some home made pizza. After all the food I cooked on Christmas... we're not really feeling like a big fancy meal.

PA, why do you think we have our game nights at home? My 13 year old still isn't old enough to babysit his brother past dark!
