New Year’s Eve is a pretty big deal in our friends group. Let us paint a picture: All of our girlfriends perfectly styled in cocktail dresses and heels, the guys in suit and bowties. At the beginning everyone is standing around fancy appetizers with their welcome drinks in one hand and iPhone in the other to capture the moment, us girls touching up our lipstick between sips, and everyone laughing, chatting and having a great time before the madness begins. By madness we mean the cook off that is about to happen. Every year we make teams of two and each team prepares a course. Think welcome drink, followed by many different vegetarian and non vegetarian appetizers, then main courses and of course cheese and dessert are a must. (The idea behind this was so that the hosting couple wont have tob e in the kitchen all night long. Also the teams always have to clean up after every course!)
Naturally every year each team wants to surprise everyone else with an extravagant and extra yum dish. → Note, this evening is really far from a competition, for the most part, we are all there with just a few main goals which include eating, drinking, celebrating friendships, dancing and laughing until our feet and faces hurt!
So we wanted to share some recipes from past years with you. We’ll start off with our pretty in pink welcome drink and wish you A HAPPY DELICIOUS NEW YEAR!
