New Years Eve Menu {dinner parties}

celebratory new years eve dinner party menu

Planning on staying in for New Years Eve while the kiddies are asleep?  Rather than ordering in, make the night special with this New Years Eve menu.  This menu has all the components of a celebratory meal; a few fancy appetizers that feature choice ingredients, a great cut of meat with a special sauce, seasonal sides and a bittersweet ending (pun intended).  Make this meal for 2-10 people.  It won’t take you all day to prepare, and you can cut corners by making only one appetizer and dessert (the two options are for larger groups; save even more time by buying dessert).  Have a happy and delicious New Year celebration!
