Never had a hangover in my life. It's gonna be my 20th birthday and everyone wants to take me out for a drink. I don't celebrate new year, just my birthday being on the 1st Jan.

Finger food. Not sure what yet--but probably a variation of a smorgåsbord but will include spring rolls and other "non-traditional" things re: a
smorgåsbord.

I'm planning a cassoulet.

I've bought 3 ducks for Christmas dinner, and I'm going to serve the breasts with a dried cherry gastrique. I'll confit the legs & thighs to use for cassoulet on New Year's Day.

Black eyed peas and ham, cornbread with honey butter.

Add to the list of finger food spread we're laying out on the dining room table I'm grilling a batch of hot wings rubbed with some Habanero Death Dust I was given for X'mas.
I'll also fire up the pizza oven outside for some ambiance and for those who want to roast marshmallows, mochis, or whatever.

New Year's Day- Pork Roast, Sauerkraut, Mashed Potatoes, Black-eyed Peas and other veggies to be determined later. Maybe Honey Glazed Carrots and Lemon Peppered Green Beans.

After reading other posts, I have decided on Carrots and Kale. Corn Bread sounds good but then so does Rye Bread. I am still up in the air about the bread.

You could have cornbread and rye. Cornbread and kale and black eyed peas are traditional together. Everything sure sounds yummy!

Our plans changed. We're not going out to dinner. I made a batch of marinated mushrooms today using FRESH crimini. I also plan on making a batch of pickled shrimp according to a recipe posted here. We have champagne and some other finger foods as well. Some tempura shrimp, scallops wrapped in bacon and who knows what else.

And if some of this spills over into Sunday, that will be some tailgating food for the last game of the regular game.

we're going to the devils' game with a couple of nieces and nephews, then out for spanish/portugese with everyone.

i know for a fact that camarones al ajillo will be on the menu, as well and paella, lobsters, and chuletas.

i don't know what everyone else is having...

Shrimp in a garlic/butter/white wine sauce with brown rice and steamed asparagus. Homemade Devil's Food Cake with dark chocolate ganache for dessert, plus, I'm making bittersweet chocolate truffles.
