Keeping New Years Eve Traditions

Every year I swear I am going to do something ‘special’ for New Years Eve.  In my thirty plus years I’ve never gone out for NYE.  A couple times I’ve had people over or gone to a friends, but part of e wants to experience the hype of a big party, in true New Years Eve fashion.  But every year those visions slip away and it creeps up on me with no special plans at all. 

This year is no exception.  I haven’t even considered what we’ll eat tomorrow.  I still need to go to the store for weekly necessities so I’m hoping inspiration hits early on in the day so I can get some stuff to make it at least a little special. Since I plan to get focused on weight loss again this week I’m going to make NYE a last splurge.  I’m thinking to get a little variety and hopefully not go totally overboard, I’m going to do appetizers.  I found some great ideas from Hormel..

Turn an ordinary biscuit into a more sophisticated appetizer by filling a mini biscuit  with a delicious mixture of Hormel® pepperoni minis, cheese, tomato, mayonnaise and pesto to create Italian Pepperoni Bites

With a preparation time of less than 15 minutes, Chicken and Salsa Tortilla Bites are quick and tasty bite-size wraps that don’t require any baking. Simply combine Hormel® chunk breast of chicken, a vegetable cream cheese of your choice, and CHI-CHI’S® thick & chunky salsa, spread on a tortilla, wrap up and enjoy!

Give your appetizer selection a bit of upscale flair with these Bacon and Blue Cheese Crostinis. Elegant and flavorful, each crostini is a mouthful of generous portions of bacon and cheese. 

If you have any favorite appetizer recipes, I’d love to hear them!!
