Need ideas -- nay, a menu! -- for new year's day meal

IndyGirl | Dec 27, 2008 04:04 PM

Hi everyone,

Cooking for my in-laws and my SO and I. I need to have the ingredient list to my father-in-law by Monday night so he can get the ingredients on Tuesday (don't ask). They are buying the ingredients, I am cooking. Works for me!

I am vegetarian and while I don't care whether other people eat meat, I am wholly uncomfortable cooking it since I have almost no experience doing it and I'm not confident in my quality control. I am also iffy on seafood. So I am thinking of getting smoked salmon as part of our appetizer and then something mostly vegetarian for the main meal--something like prosciutto would be fine since I wouldn't really be "cooking" it, of course. They are very comfortable eating vegetarian and love a number of ethnic cuisines.

Cuisine is open. They don't seem to be people who believe in black-eyed peas on New Year's. They lean toward the health-conscious.
