So just today we decided to have over a couple people for NYE. Now I can't decide on a menu...
Details: 4 people (possibly 6). Very casual, but I still want it to be special. I have most of Thursday and Friday to shop and cook, but I also need to prepare the homestead.
My ideas so far:
Braised short ribs, the broccoli Cheeto thing from Saveur (I know other guests will think it's fun), polenta or mashed potato.
Variety of whatever tapas type things seem fun.
Homemade pizza and cesar
a fondue type thing.
I just can't decide on anything... I'll do spiced nuts and olives/cheese board for apps, popcorn for late night snacks and I'm thinking an almond cherry cake for dessert.
What sounds most festive to you (or please suggest something else!)
