Every year around New Year's, my family gets together for a slightly unorthodox tradition.
But not just any dinner. As my daughter would say, it's like one big snack.
Chips. (Tortilla and Potato). Dips. (Bacon and Onion (the favorite), clam, nacho, fiesta, pico de gallo (which can hardly be demoted to a dip)). Cheese. (Havarti, Colby, marinated Mozzeralla) Meat. (Pepperoni, Salami, Hickory Farms summer sausage (mmmmm)). Crackers. Cheese ball. And for my dad, pickled herring, Cajun salmon, Cajun green olives, marinated Portabellas, cocktail onions (but no cocktails). No kippers or pickled pigs feet this year.
This is the best dinner ever. And one I look forward to all year.
As my sister says, we make our resolutions on January 2.
