NYE Menu

The husband and I had our first NYE party as a married couple.  He swore off hosting NYE events because “everyone else does.”  Well our cooking and parties are a lot better than everyone else’s.  ‘Nuff said.  I complimented his mad kitchen skills (which truly is amazing) and then very little effort was needed to change his mind.  The party was my excuse to use all the serving pieces we got as wedding presents.  I also wanted a short commute to bed.

It was a big success; loads of laughter, music, food, and booze along with 3 very fat and happy dogs.  It was a good party.  Of course I forgot to take pics during the party, but I did take photos documenting the mess around 330 am New Year’s Day.  Champagne makes me creative.

This is absolutely going to be a recurring event.  We are thinking once a quarter.

The party menu

  • Roasted dates with parmesan and bacon
  • Curry chicken salad on crostini
