Didn’t make a reservation for New Year’s Eve?  There’s still time to plan and host a New Year’s Eve dinner at home.  This menu has all the components of a celebratory meal; a few fancy appetizers that feature choice ingredients, a great cut of meat with a special sauce, seasonal sides and a bittersweet ending (pun intended).  Make this meal for 2-10 people.  It won’t take you all day to prepare, but everyone will think it did.  Have a happy, hip and delicious New Year celebration.
