New Year's Menus

What are you planning for New Year's Eve and/or Day?
We got a couple of lobster tails on sale ($4.99 ea), have them in the freezer. I'd like to do something with them on Near Year's Eve, not sure what yet. We'll be staying in, having a quiet evening of some good food and a few games of Yahtzee.
Then on New Year's Day we are going to have a turkey, with all the trimmings. Haven't really decided what "all the trimmings" will entail, other than gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing.

New Years Eve day we are going out to a Chinese restaurant for a late lunch. We'll have champagne, shrimp cocktail, marinated herring and other stuff in front of a fire in the fireplace in the evening.

New Years Day we will have a standing rib roast, baked potatoes and asparagus for dinner. Don't know what's up for dessert. Whatever is left over from Christmas sweets.

A huge pot of ham and bean soup, making sure there are black-eyed peas in the bean mix. Served with cornbread and honey butter. I'll be taking this to work to share with anyone who would like to partake.

We'd rather do our partying at home. New Year's always calls for Black Eyed Peas, so that'll be on the menu either Thursday night or Friday. haven't decided which.

Will probably make some pizzas for football watching on the 1st (Go Northwestern Wildcats!) and there is plenty of Champagne for celebrating.
