NYE Menu

We're having a few guests over for NYE, so we're going to spend some time doing what we love: cooking!

I think when it comes to food, we both have our own styles in the kitchen. After some discussion, we agreed that he will do the savory and I will do the sweet. (Let's face it, we both have rather big egos in doing what we do, so the best bet is to each focus on our strengths.)

I decided a little theme to help the direction along. Hey, poker and James Bond has been big this year, so I totally ripped the idea of the internet and created the above invite. Along with 007-related beverages, a classic Bond movie playing in the movie room, we are going to do the following finger foods so everyone can mingle, chill and hang out rather than doing a sit-down 4 course dinner. Although, I can't wait to get rid of my old leather couch so I can totally have a dining table out for dinner parties... (Yep, I'm definitely getting old...)

Anyway, the menu:

Chris's Savory:
  • Pineapple Jerk Chicken
  • Sauteed Shrimp w/ Chimichurri Sauce
  • Ravioli w/ Tomato-Basil Sauce
  • Roast Beef Tea Sandwiches
  • Roasted Red Pepper Fondue Dipper Trio w/ Garlic Herbed Pommes Frites,
    Onion Rings and Mozzarella Sticks
  • New England Cod Chowder
  • Tabouli Salad

Lisa's Sweet:
  • Truffles Trio
  • Fresh Fruit Tartlets
The apartment is decked out, everything is pretty much set, playlist selected. All that's left to do is chill the champagne for the midnight toast!

Happy New Year all!

Same as above!! Funny, I went to a 007 party :) but at a bar. It was too crowded. I much prefer the laidback house party scene.
