Every year we have a New Years Party. The night revolves around eating and drinking, dancing and eating more. We have a great group of friends who make the trek from Sacramento to bring in the New Year with us. They stay the night and when we all wake up, we go on a New Years hike then back to the house for breakfast.
In case you would like to have a Non New Years Eve party/sleepover here’s the menu I created…
Black Bean Chrorizo dip the biggest hit among the friends
Tomatillo-Arbol Pepper Salsa
I got lots of help from a website called Mexico In My Kitchen and a great suggestion from a friend to make beef tacos.
Shredded Beef Soft Tacos
Making shredded beef tacos is way easy in the slow cooker. I learned a cooking tip from a friend of mine when making meat in the slow cooker…add dark soda as part of the liquid. I used 1/2 cup Coca Cola and a 1/2 c chicken broth for a 4lb sirloin roast. I browned the roast on all sides first in a Dutch oven, then cooked on low for 8-10 hours and voila!
My dearest friend Mark, brought me a gluten free cake, and a Red Velvet cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes
New Years Day Breakfast
Chorizo and Papas
Tons of Bacon
Triple Berry Scones-gluten free
Happy New Year Friends!!
