FH ans I do not drink alcohol (well me a tiny bit) so our NYE celebration focuses on food!
Unfortunately, not all my guests are seafood lovers so I had to expand my menu.
Shrimp steamed with beer and Old Bay
Hot Crab Dip
Homemade salsa and chips
Ring bologna and assorted cheeses (served with crackers)
Homemade Chex Mix
Pizza Ring (uses biscuits, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese) served with sauce
Filet Mignon (for the seafood haters!) and
We are toasting marshmallows in the fireplace!
So what’s your menu for NYE?

We’re having a post holiday party, but it’s a cocktail party kind of, so there will be alcohol, and the food is appetizers. So far, we’ve decided on:
Jalapeno cream cheese pinwheels
Pita chips, tortilla chips, Fritos scoops
Spinach artichoke dip
Pigs in a blanket
Actually, if anyone wants to give me any input, that would be great!

Friends are hosting a party (there will be eight people total) and I am making my crab mac and cheese and FI is making his “glistening meat” (lol, it’s kielbasa in a Sprite reduction). Our friends are smoking a turkey and roasting asparagus.

That “glistening meat” sounds like a real weiner! Oops, I meant winner!

Ours is going to be 4 to 5 couples, and each of us is contributing. So far we have bratwurst, coleslaw, 3 different dips (buffalo chicken, hot artichoke, pizza) brownies, chocolate chip cookies & a fully stocked bar. Not sure what the other 2 couples are bringing yet. We’re all married and the one couple just got engaged, so it will be fun reliving the wedding excitement!
