What do YOU do for New Year's Eve?
Please share in the comments and tell us what are your New Year's Eve traditions? It's interesting reading what others said they do to bring in the new year.
Isn't that a cool picture above? It's Singapore on New Year's Eve, and no, we won't be doing anything quite that cool. (Although our son visited there last year and loved it, did you know English is the primary language there, and that it's very safe and clean? His pictures were really neat, but I'm not sure the 24 hour plane trip would be worth it…) We always go to Joe & Meg’s New Year’s Eve party, which was especially nice when they lived right next door so we didn't have to drive anywhere, and the kids would have their own party right here at our place. There are always lots of fun friends and games, and one year Joe and I were partners and won it all. Keep in mind I’m rotten at things like foosball, darts, euchre, etc., but Joe is good at all of those and that night even I was on fire. So this drove Meg crazy because she’s super competitive! Haaaaa, that made it even more fun. 🙂
This year they're out of town since Meg's Mom just passed away, and it's been a really sad time for us too because we're close with her whole family, not to mention that my emotions are still raw from saying goodbye to my own Mom a couple of years ago. So this year we're going to different good friends' house for a party…
What do you take to EAT at your New Year’s Eve get-togethers?
I'm taking this crazy-sounding new cranberry dip!
I thought I'd show you a few more of my favorite appetizer or dessert recipes that are great to take for a group, but if none of them grab you, click here to scroll through the entire list of appetizer ideas and here are the desserts:
And here are some good-to-take places dessert recipes, some are gluten-free for your grain-sensitive friends and others are not:
I hope these recipes get you some great compliments at your New Year's Eve gathering. 🙂
Be safe everyone!
Notice I didn’t say, “See you next year?” (Lame.)
