DH and I have decided to stay home for NY this year as we have a 6 month old bub and we live on a property so it's hard to travel place etc.
I have invited some other couples from the local area over to bring in the new year with. Of course I was expecting one couple to actually come, and of course the majority have said they will come lol.
Just wondering what you would suggest to cook for food? Most of us have young babies so I'm thinking of a start time of 6.30/7, if we didn't I would have made it later and therefore not made dinner.
We usually do a BBQ but I find I am always running around like a mad person when we have company and never get to sit down and fully relax. Also I think meat gets a bit expensive and we are the ones who entertain within our group of friends 99% of the time so I get a bit fed up with spending so much (party pooper I know!)
So hubby wants BBQ, I was thinking nibbles to start and then finger type food. But now am thinking that will cause more hassle than the BBQ lol.
Anyway any suggestions would be appreciated, with the smallest amount of washing up to be done and most of the prep able to be done the day before or atleast before guests arrive.
Oh and there will be about 16 adults (at this stage).
