ringing in the new year


on new year's eve, my parents came up to our house for dinner.  we had fun cooking together and trying out several new recipes.  we made pork potstickers, chicken fajita bites, spinach artichoke dip, parmesan crackers with roasted red pepper sauce, fried oysters, and roasted sweet potato and carrot soup.  it was all so good!

it's a tradition of ours to see a movie on new year's eve, so after dinner we went to see saving mr. banks.  (if you haven't seen it yet, i highly recommend it.  it was so good!)  when we got home after the movie, we all curled up on the couch and watched the times square ball drop on tv.  it was a great way to spend new year's eve!

on new year's day, we went down to my parent's house for our traditional pork and sauerkraut dinner.  we really enjoyed ringing in the new year with family.  here's to a happy and healthy new year!

love, laurie

We had a fun time NYE. I really liked that idea of a bunch of hearty appetizers instead of a meal. But it was just as filling.
They were all delicious, I would do them again.
