~~a little early but if you enjoy and want to participate….you need time to stock up~~

see you in the next year!

I think I’ll stay home and have my “New Year’s Eve” Traditional Light Supper this year and by-pass all the potential hazards and the expense of going out on this festive eve.

THE SUPPER CONSISTS OF:

Appetizer:  Sharp Cheddar Cheese Squares with Green Apple Slices and Crackers.  Also if it is to your taste and it certainly is to mine; I have some freshly roasted Chestnuts served as soon as you can stand to peel them.

(This takes care of your protein and your first helping of fruit, the crackers and chestnuts are your carbohydrates and starch, diabetics BEWARE carb overload)

Main Course:  Tomato Soup (the link to the recipe I’m going to use this year, will follow) and all the Bacon you can eat without throwing up.tomato-soup-with-oregano-and-basil

(I consider the tomato in the soup to be your second helping of fruit or first helping of veggies…you pick.  The bacon is just not good for you either but what the hey?  It TASTES GOOD and it’s New Years Eve After All….you can make a resolution after you throw up from too much of it) 

Vegetable:  I like greens so I just steam up a large amount of Swiss Chard or Spinach but Collards would go well too.

(This is your second helping of veggies)

Dessert:  Whatever you damn well please and as much as you want; again after all it is New Year’s you have a whole new year ahead of you to make up for this dinner.

Drinks per Course:  Beer or Hard Cider with the appetizers; Red Wine with the soup course; Champagne with dessert and thru to the New Year.  

Then after you throw up again from all the booze top off the last night of the year (now actually the first day of the New Year and possible the last night of your life) with a snifter or two of a GOOD Single Malt Scotch and some Very Dark Chocolate or a Cigar….again you choose.  I suggest Laphroaig lrgob-non8

Not only is this the last night of the year, by tomorrow you’ll wish it had been the last night of your life!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
