Food and games, lots of laughter and catching up with old friends we have not seen in a couple years is a great way to spend New Years Eve. Among friends eager to wind up the holiday season (New Years resolutions of diets being such), A An uncomplicated menu: a potluck.

  • cheese and crackers
  • ham
  • take-out Chinese
  • homemade soup
  • homemade apple pie (apparently someone’s a holiday gift)
  • Peanut butter balls (my spouse’s trademark treat)
  • a mango cheesecake (using up ingredients from Christmas)

We, of course, choose the former.

Welcome to 2023.
