New Years Preparations
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!
