New Year’s Eve Party Plans

Last week I finished the New Year’s Eve Party invitations and gave Charlie the task of handing them out. (I also emailed and facebooked folks we don’t see regularly.)

Next task, naturally, is the menu. Since New Year’s Eve is on Wednesday this year I want to be sure there are some items on the menu that can easily be made in advance.

A tile triviet awaits a steaming pot of soup which is on this year's menu.

I can get started on the soup stock this weekend.

What go-to item is on your menu?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
