That sounds DELICIOUS!

I think the last NYE party I went to served pulled pork, deep fried mac+cheese bites, a bunch of dips… But honestly, I mostly remember the Cosmos!

@rcac1208:  Yum! We did pulled pork for Christmas. We did an easy bean crock pot mix which was a huge hit. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it!

8 slices bacon, diced

·         2 onions, cut into quarters and sliced

·         1/2 cup vinegar

·         1 teaspoon salt

·         1 teaspoon ground mustard

·         1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

·         1 (16 ounce) can baked beans (i.e. northern white beans), undrained

·         1 (15 1/2 ounce) can butter beans, drained and rinsed

·         1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

·         1 (14 1/2 ounce) can green beans, cut and drained



·         Cook the bacon until crisp.

·         Drain saving 2 tablespoons of pan drippings.

·         Sauté the onions in the drippings until tender.

·         Add in vinegar, salt, mustard and garlic powder.

·         Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until the onions are brown.

·         Combine the beans in the crock pot.

·         Add the onions mix and bacon; stir well.

·         Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until the beans are tender.

We’re doing fondue, but that can be a bit too much with a large crowd.  Some fruit and chocolate fondue with a spoon to dish it out works well with a bunch of people though!

We are making homemade pizzas! Our good friends are coming and we will have all the toppings laid out to load on after rolling out the dough. Just something fun to do that requires less prep for me.

Your menu sounds good. It’s just me and my Darling Husband for NYE this year, so I’m doing a make-your-own-crostinis with goat cheese, and a variety of sweet and savory toppings, like deli meats, pepper relish, tomatoes, and apples/berries with honey. I think it will be good!

It is FI’s birthday on NYE, think we’ll be making chili and cornbread since it will be just the two of us. 🙂

People are coming over around 8pm then leaving for the local street party around 10pm.  Even though it’s not dinner time and I will probably end up with a lot of leftovers, I am setting up a chili bar with sour cream, shredded cheddar, soup crackers, Fritos, and jalapenos.

I’m making pot roast sliders that are super good.  We are also having cheese, sausage, and crackers and I bought some brownies from the bakery!

Going out tonight but hosting a ‘recovery’ brunch tomorrow lol. Traditional southern New Years fare—black eyes peas, collard greens, cornbread, pimento cheese, and bloody marys 🙂
