Weekly Menu 12/30 - 1/3

/

I can't believe its almost 2013! I know they say once you're an adult and out in the "real world" the years just fly by, but that really didn't begin to happen to me until the last couple of years. Since 2010, it just seems like time is going by at warp speed and I'm barely able to keep up. Hell, this June I'll have been out of high school for 10 years!

TEN YEARS! Where has the time gone?

Anyway, I hope you had a great holiday full of great food and fun times with friends and family. I definitely did. We're even planning on having a New Years Eve party. It'd definitely be much more helpful if I had any idea how many people were coming, but that's another issue. I'll share the menu for that after the one for the rest of the week. 

Which consists of:

Sunday - Garbure {French Ham and Vegetable Stew}

Monday - New Years Eve Party

Tuesday - Pork and Sauerkraut with Mashed Potatoes 

Wednesday - Lasagna 

Thursday - leftovers 

Do you have any New Years Eve plans yet? We rarely ever go out anymore. Its so much easier (and cheaper) to just have people come here. I think I'm becoming anti-social in my old age. :-p 

Also, do you have any New Years Day traditions? Aside from resolutions, that is? Tom grew up with having pork and sauerkraut on New Years Day so we've adopted that tradition. 

I don't think I'm making any real resolutions this year. Just the usual "lose weight" one. But since I have a pretty firm trip to Florida planned in April where Tom and I are not only going to visit my aunt, but visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (squee!!!) I have a deadline to shed these extra pounds I've picked up over the last year.

Tom's family does an annual "biggest loser" contest where the person who loses the highest percentage of body weight wins a prize amount. I'll never actually win, since my percentages are always super low, but I'm participating anyway. Along with a few other weight loss challenges with my internet peoples. I figure if I commit myself to quite a few different things to hold me accountable to lose weight, plus I have a trip looming in the future, there is a good chance I might actually lose weight this time. You wanna hold me accountable too? I'd appreciate it. 

And now onto our New Years Eve menu; which is mainly just appetizers. 

~ Spinach Dip with Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps, Carrots and Celery Sticks
~ Asian Beef & Scallion Bites
~ Mac and Cheese Cups 
~ Ham and Cheese Sliders
~ Taco Bar: chicken, beef, refried beans, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, taco sauce, cheese 
~ Banana Split Cupcakes
~ Cherry Coke Cupcakes
~ Texas Trash Mix 
~ Pomegranate Bellinis
~ Pear Apple White Sangria 

I'm looking forward to the new year and new recipes! I hope you are too.
