So, my friend has invited me over again for new years, and i suggeated a taco bar, because it would be easier for everyone, and everyone could eat according to thier preferences.
So i am making enchilada beans, spanish rice and possibly vegan cheese sauce, buying avocados, olives, jalapenos, and chips.
What is everyone doing for new year?

A taco bar is a great idea and what we did on Christmas Eve where there were 6 of us and 3 were vegan and 3 were not. We did Gardein taco meat, had vegan shreds, a pica made of green onions, tomatoes, cilantro and black olives, chopped lettuce for the top, taco sauce made from "bulleted" spicy salsa and a touch of vegan sour cream on top. Funnily enough we ran out of the pica and the lettuce as we underrated their popularity. A simple side of spanish rice was also a big hit with the non-vegans piling the pica on top with the sauce.

We don't have any big plans for New Years.... just quiet and food...

Since this is the end of a decade, I am going to spend a more reflective New Year instead of going out or partying. In 1999 that certainly wasn't the case as I was very young and wild, and I recall spending 2009 with a few friends. So maybe I am making a new tradition, or this is just something I need right now.

I still want to make a festive dish, I'm thinking something with tempeh and cabbage right now, but I'll update in a few days.

A taco bar sounds like an excellent idea for a party. I may use that after the first of the year.

I'm not a big New Year's Eve reveler, and I likely will be working anyway, but I will have a nice meal. I think I want spaghetti with seasoned olive oil, broccoli and black olives. And maybe some garlic bread and a glass of red wine.

I've decided to marinate tempeh with tamari, fresh ginger, fresh orange juice, fresh garlic, a splash of ACV, and a bit of coconut sugar. Then I'll fry it and pour some of the sauce over cooked broccoli. All will be served over rice with the coconut flavored Earth Balance.

I know cabbage is supposed to bring wealth in Europe, but rice brings wealth in Asia. I just am more in a broccoli mood.

we have decide to 'graze' today and tomorrow - just lots of hummus and veggies and fruits and bread pizza and making pea soup and having it with grilled cheeze and also picked up a "blue" cashew cheese wedge and pitas and will likely make some falafel balls as well

Happy New Year!
