Every year when it comes time to decide what to do on New Year's Eve, my top picks are to stay in and make a fancy meal for the two of us or have some close friends over and make hors d'oeuvres and finger foods to snack on while catching up, watching the ball drop, and sipping bubbly.
Over the years I've made some great meals and hosted some fun New Year's Eve gatherings, so I thought I'd share some of the dishes and bites I consider New Year's Eve-worthy in case you're planning to stay in and need some menu ideas.
