New Years Preparations

Dec 29, 2011

Thanks to Pin­ter­est and my mom… it’s pret­ty easy prepar­ing for New Year’s Eve this year. I love sit­ting at home watch­ing the ball drop while all com­fy in my jam­mies, sit­ting on the couch chat­ting with Alan. We are a low key kin­da cou­ple and it fits us per­fect­ly.

So here is what we will be hav­ing and I can say with­out one sin­gle doubt, this is the best “Hot Choco­late” I have ever had. I would rather have hot choco­late than cham­pagne at any cel­e­bra­tion. I made this for our Christ­mas get togeth­er and every­one loved it and agreed it was the best they ever had too.

I’ll be mak­ing my mom’s awe­some beer sausage for us to snack on… I’ve had this every year for as long as I can remem­ber. It is so good!

Mom’s Beer Sausage
3 Pack­ages of Eck­rich Sausage
2 Bot­tles of Chili Sauce
2 Bot­tles of Beer (any kind is fine)
1 1/2 Cups Brown Sug­ar
Slice sausage into bite sized pieces, brown and drain off fat
In a bowl com­bine chili sauce, beer and brown sug­ar, stir until mixed
Place browned sausage into an oven safe bowl, pour liq­uid mix­ture over sausage, place in pre­heated oven at 350 degrees and heat until mix­ture is hot. Serve while still hot/warm in a bowl or set out and have guests use tooth­picks to pick up the sausage pieces.

At mid­night, we’ll have these “Marsh­mal­low Delights.” Ans­ley calls them the new fam­i­ly cin­na­mon rolls. I made them for every­one the day after Christ­mas and they were gone before they even had a chance to cool off. Super YUMMY!

And I believe I will use up some of the small pieces of Christ­mas wrap­ping paper and make these New Year’s Eve Pop­pers. It will be fun to fill them with can­dies and small gifts. Sur­pris­es at any age are always fun.

I tell ya this hol­i­day sea­son Pin­ter­est is respon­si­ble for many a pound gained. My friend Wendy Vec­chi said hol­i­day calo­ries don’t count… I do believe I have a few words for her.

Super Sized Hugs!
