A New Year's Eve Party

What do you do for New Year's Eve?  Several years ago, we started a little New Year's Eve party that has blossomed into an annual tradition.  Even last year we had our little party after I worked a 12 hour day. Every year our menu varies just a little bit, but we have some staple items that are requested every year.  Most of these foods are things that we only eat the one time a year.  The standard fare that never changes on New Year's Eve is small eggrolls, and cheese puffs.  The eggrolls are easy to do and the cheese puffs are a recipe I adapted from a cookbook to suit my purpose.  Along with these foods, this year our menu is as follows.

  1. eggrolls
  2. cheese puffs
  3. hot cheese dip
  4. old English cheese dip
  5. buttery swiss cheese ball
  6. pizza rolls
  7. homemade fried mozzarella sticks
  8. fried ravioli
  9. ring bologna and cheese slices with crackers
  10. spinach dip in Hawaiian bread
  11. hot chicken salad on Hawaiian rolls
  12. Crab Rangoon
This party just includes the family.  Over the last several years I've had teenagers in the house, and we worked together on the food.  This year, we just have Carolena in the house, but we are getting her little brother Derrick for our party.  I imagine we'll watch some old movies and the kids will probably play with their dress up clothes they got for Christmas.  It should be a fun night.
