As the end of 2010 draws near, most of us will be spending time with loved ones. Whether you are going to be spending your New Year's Eve night on the couch in pajamas, out in a bar, or at a party at a friend's, it is a wonderful night to treat yourself to something delicious as we transition into 2011! And, as always, Food for Thought is here to help, regardless of which option you will be partaking in this year.
Option 1: The Cozy-Couch
Cozy up with Dagoba hot chocolate (add some Elyon marshmallows!) as you watch favorite movies and recount favorite memories from this year. Toast in the new year with one of our R.W. Knudsen Ciders (available in apple, cranberry, pomegranate, or grape flavors). Looking for a tasty treat? Try Immaculate Baking's crescent rolls! I make them into a dessert by sprinkling sugar and cinnamon on before baking... or leave them plain and dip them into oil & herbs!
Option 2: House-Party Butterfly
Bring over a bottle of Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider to sip on while mingling with friends. Needing to bring over a finger food? Pick up a Cady Creek cheese platter, slice up some Applegate Farms pepperoni and Field Day Round Crackers for a tasty treat! Or try one of the Mt. Vikos spreads on your favorite cracker (available in 5 delicious flavors!)!
Option 3: Night On the Town
Going out for a night on the town? Make a low-calorie spritzer with Steaz teas and Zevia Twist to enjoy while getting ready. Make sure to get some light foods in your stomach that will keep you going through the night. Try Mediterranean Snackfood Company's baked lentil chips (available in three yummy flavors) and Boscoli olive salad (pick between kalamata or jalapeno style!).
Regardless of what you are doing or where you are going, be safe and have a wonderful weekend! We look forward to seeing you in 2011!!!
