Ideas for New Year's Eve Food...

With New Years Eve and New Year's Day just around the corner, I wanted to share some healthy food recipes that I will be making for my family. We celebrate Christmas in our home until January 6th so we are all still in festive moods around here.  We put some of our decorations away, and start to freshen up our home for the New Year, but it still feels and looks like Christmas.

So lets talk party food family style!! We feed 11 in our home so the amount of food we buy to feed our family is more than most. When I give my recipes to families not as large as ours I always remind them there will be enough to freeze for later or save for another night! Our meals last us 1-2 nights, it all depends on how hungry everyone is. For a family of 6 what we make in our home would be 2-3 nights of food for sure!

This year like last year we are starting our New Year's Eve night bowling with our church family. We plan on having pizza after as a group which should be fun. Are plan is to open gifts when we come home since we allow the kids to stay up anyway.

So, munchies will need to be ready for sure, someone is always hungry in our home!  I am always given a list by family on what they would like me to make, and this year is no different.
