Default New Years eve dinners

Got a couple planned. Pork butt has been marinating since yesterday, will go in the smoker tomorrow morning, then in the crock pot for pulled pork. Vinegar and seasonings are the marinade. Seems like the sauce for the pork in the crock pot always gets to thin. Maybe take the lid off for a couple hours and let it steam off? Just ladle it out? Any suggestions?
I call this my ''Saphire'' dish.(From the old Amos and Andy show) Collard greens and ham. Pulled a ham with bone out of the freezer, will put in a big pot with the greens and slow boil for a couple hours. Any suggestions as to what spices to add? Usually enough flavor from the ham, but I'm willing to try something new. gypsyman

Oh how I remember Amos and Andy long before TV only radio Wife and I buy 5 pounds of steamed shrimp we eat and sit and watch all the nuts fighting the crowds and listen to the red necks firing their guns at midnight What they don't realize that the bullet fired in the air comes back down with enough power to kill you Happy new Year

I'll be having my cabbage and blackeyed peas. Oh, I stay up till midnight every New Years. That's midnight in Montevedeo, Uruquay or Eastern Newfoundland. Yeah, that's about 9 O'clock at my house.

Too soon old . . . Too late smart.

Sounds GOOD Gypsy!!

My wife and I are hosting and I am doing the cookin' this year.

On the menu this year: I have small Angus rib eye steaks, Venison loin, marinating. Also making Chicken Cordon bleu. Green Bean casserole, Glazed baby Carrots, Asparagus & Dirty red smashed potatoes. Then momma picked up those roll up buttery Pillsbury brisket things. For finger food it will be, cold Shrimp W/horseradish sauce, Buffalo Chicken dip, Shrimp dip, Salsa, Salsa chips, A Vegi platter & lastly some cocktail weenies wrapped in dough.

New Years for us is usually just four couples, some years only three, always at least two. We rotate homes. Some of us have gone thru high school. Others work acquaintances others still neighbors. ALL have become family. As the children grown, some where included if they wanted. Now they are all but one gone to there own homes and have families and friends of there own. So now, we are back to how we did it almost thirty years ago...just us adults. (I use that term loosely when including myself) We are ALL very close friends having been to each others weddings, our kids christenings, first communions, bar mitzvah's and weddings, we have been to some of our own parents funerals, Suffice it to say, these folks are my family of choice. Equally needless to say, this is my favorite holiday next to Thanksgiving. Difference being one is family your born into and other is family you choose.

I would like to wish all a joyous and SAFE holiday. PLEASE remember at grace to wish all those who cannot be home and who are working so WE CAN do what we do on New Years.

May God Bless everyone,

+1...same party animal here !!


Out of all the things I have lost I miss my sanity almost as much as my hearing and sight.
It don't matter cause I don't mind or is it I lost that too........

A man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an opinion.

I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.

We should start a club or sumpn. by midnight I have already woke myself up snoring at least once!

Gman that all sounds good all I can add is "think seasoning" salt and red pepper is my weakness. not too much , but it has to have some zing.

God Bless America and Donald Trump !

A little bit of cornstarch to stiffen it?

New Years Eve is one holiday I rarely go out.
I still miss sitting at home with dad watching Guy Lombardo.

Went to a Bingo Parlor a few years ago, they had free pizza buffet, now that was a good night even though we never won.
Sadly it closed two years ago.

This year going to one of the few truly good local eateries around St.Cloud , Mn, Coyote Moon, and enjoying a prime rib buffet, then going to a movie and at midnight will shoot off a few fireworks.
I still miss Guy Lombardo.
