FF Cooking Club- What’s On The Menu New Year’s Eve Party Edition

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone had an awesome Hanukkah and Christmas and are gearing up for New Year’s Eve.  We routinely have a NYE party at our house every year.  We cook dinner and have a mock NYE for the kids, then put them to sleep and continue the drinking and festivities.  One of our favorite things to do is play Right Left Center.  If you have never played, you must check it out. This year we are doing a potluck Tapas New Year’s Eve Party which should be fun.  Everyone is responsible for bringing 2 or 3 of their favorite appetizers and we all enjoy.  With all of us having so many children and the chaos and stress of the holidays, it’s fun to do something casual and fun with family and friends.  A potluck tapas party is a great way to have lots of food, yet make it a bit more relaxed and casual for everyone.
