It's hard to believe that another year has passed and that we are talking about a new year starting. How do you like to celebrate? Do you just prefer to sit in, watch the ball drop at midnight and then head to bed? Either have a party, go to a party or light up the town?
We have done all four over the years. In our way back youth we used to get dressed up and go out on the town. Loved all that celebrating with crowds of people. The champagne flowing and dancing the night away. Let's fast forward to when we had kids - the early years I'm pretty sure we just stayed home and went to bed BEFORE the ball dropped! Those early mornings you know...
When the kids were about 5-6 years old we used to get together with the neighbors, their kids and went to a local ranch. We would ride on wagons and the kids would get to hold bunnies on their laps. We did some sledding and then headed home for hot chocolate.
We've also had parties where I would have dinner at my place then we would head next door to the other neighbors for games and watching the ball drop. Now with grandkids we have done some babysitting and still manage to watch it strike midnight (though since we are in the midwest, we might watch it drop at 11 our time and call it a night!)
Whatever you do, I wish you a very happy new year and hope 2016 was great!
This salsa can also be very versatile. Use it to top cooked chicken or fish and it even would taste great poured over a brick of cream cheese and served with crackers.
