    How many of you are like my wife and me and just stay home on New Years (aka Amateur Night)?

    Those that do stay home - what's on YOUR menu this year?

    Edited to correct a speling erur....;)

    Right On! about the amateur night thing.^c
    We stay home and IF we make it to midnight
    we have a champagne toast.

    New Years eve dinner could be anything from lobster
    to party pickings to chinese food.

    New Years day might be fresh ham or some seafood
    or a roast...HMMM maybe some prime rib! ;)

    I'll probably do this "stay at home" thing too...

    Seasoned and browned beef Brisket, smothered in onions with caraway seeds, and braised in Newcastle Brown Ale...
    3-4 hours...

    Broiled at the end with ketchup or tomato paste on top for color and crust...

    "Super Wal-Marts" have these whole briskets at a pretty fair price...
    I cook them a half at a time...

    We are staying at home and I am smoking a cajun injected turkey. Doing the traditional black eyed peas and other sides to go along with the bird.

    Hope the neighbors don't keep me up too late with all of that fireworks racket. I'll have to get up around four a.m to get the fire going.

    Sounds good all!

    Yeah - there are waaaay too many drinking/driving idiots out there for my liking.

    Our menu will consist of:

    * Shrimp cocktail appeteaser

    * Wedge of iceburg lettuce salad with bleu cheese (dressing and crumbles), bacon bits (real - not canned) and diced tomatoes

    * 2" thick bone-in steaks - rather marbled (from my uncle's ranch - YUM!); seared then cooked to medium on the barbie. Moderate spices.

    * Grilled veggies

    * Unsure about dessert at this point

    For our 3.5 month old daughter her dinner will be special as well:

    * 2 tablespoons of Gerber rice cereal gently marinated with essence of Similac

    * 7.x ounces of Similac... shaken - not stirred.

    * Capped off with an evening bouncing in her 'Jumperoo'.

    We are going to have a LOTR special edition marathon, so the menu is partially medieval nostalgic and partially stuff I don't have to baby sit so I can watch the movies

    B-fast will be waffles, bacon and eggs to start off in a proper Hobbit fashion.

    Then I will start the chili (ground lean meat with New Mexico green chilies) in the crock pot.

    We will munch on summer sausage with smoked cheese, while drinking Hefeweizen and Warsteiner Dunkle until the chili is done.

    I wanted to have some spiced mead, but couldn't find any at the HEB and was too lazy to go to the Central Market :(

    Just got home from a LEO's party. Fine time. Everyone that showed up knew 'Where they were'. Good conversation, kids had a great time. Still, a little spooky on the way home. Just need to be on the defensive. Stay safe in the new year everyone.

    Had a bowl of lentil soup and a couple of slices of leftover stollen.

    Oh, well. :(
