I can’t decide what to make on New Year’s Eve. It’s just going to be my hubby and me. I know I want to cook something fun, but what? Should I make pizza? Or a selection of finger foods? What about something sweet? Does anyone have suggestions?
And what about for dinner on New Year’s Day? I don’t think I want to make the traditional collards and black-eyed peas this year. Those aren’t exactly my favorite foods. I was thinking something more along the lines of beans and rice, but I can’t make up my mind.
I hope this indecisiveness isn’t an indication of my frame of mind for 2009.
Visitors to my blog have been all over the place too, looking for everything from lasagna to a simple tomato sauce for pasta, from roasted chicken breasts and vegetables to stir-fry, from sour cream dip to sorbet. I hope whatever you choose to make to celebrate the new year, it turns out fabulous. And that we can all stick to our new year’s resolutions. I suggest soup, the perfect diet food.
