New Year’s Eve preparations

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/f04/14000478/files/2014/12/img_4658.jpgAlthough I really like Christmas it is always a bit hectic to get everything done, so I just love that when it’s time for New Year’s Eve I have more time to plan and prepare for it. I’ve almost decided on a menu I will share with you, but there is also plenty to choose from in the archives; dinner parties are my forte.

After meeting up with a friend for some shopping and fika I started prepping for Wednesday’s dinner. I’ve made the jus, the ice cream batter, the gougéres and the biscuits for the pudding. I will prep some more tomorrow too so I only have the last minute cooking to do on the day so I have more time to hang out with my friends.
