I'm planning to do snacks for New Year's Eve. I just now decided on the menu! Spinach-artichoke dip with crostini, Greek seven-layer dip with pita chips and Greek meatballs. We still have Christmas cookies for dessert.

New Year's Day - haven't decided yet.

I hadn't given this much thought, until today MsM.

I asked DH what he would like to have and he said
"anything you make will be great"

I think for the Eve I'll make hand made fettuccini
with Mussels Marinara for DH and Clam Sauce for Moi.
Bread, Salad and Prosecco I think.

For the Day I'll make our favorite Grilled Teriyaki Chicken
with my Quick Cucumber Kim Chee and Fried Saimin.

Noodles are intracule to our New Years Celebration,
without exception.

Pretty much the same thing here. We stopped at Trader Joe's yesterday when we went out to order new glasses for me. I picked up a number of frozen finger foods. Today's foray into Market Basket got me shrimp spring rolls, salami, prosciutto, and a nice assortment of cheeses. I already had olives, pickles, and crackers at home. Prosecco, too. I'll figure out exactly what we're having when I start to gather things together.

We're thinking a cross between snacks and a Danish smørbrødsbord. There is bottle of Henkell Trocken, bought for the occasion, in the fridge. Hmmm, I should see if I have any rye flour. If I do, I might make some rye bread for that smørbrødsbord.

Ms M, the olive salad looks good.

I will be putting on a pot of chili for NYE.

NYDay I will bake a 10 lb bone in ham Why? Because it was the smallest I could find on line with a bone in. I think the 12 days of christmas is being displaced by the 10 days of ham -- Will freeze portions of ham. Scalloped taters. sweet potatoes, cranberries, lefse, salad with some pretty good tasting tomatoes. Just roll me in the direction of the couch.

Christmas cookies for dessert

I'm feeling a bit odd that I have zero plans for NY eve or day meals.

I was all for special Christmas Eve and day dinners but not now.

As soon as I mentioned Greek to DH, he asked about stuffed grape leaves, so add those to the menu And he's going to look for kefalotyri cheese to make saganaki with. Flaming cheese is always fun
