A Family Tradition at the Beaman's....

Flashback to New Year's Eve 2014

I love my sister and brother-in-law....yeah, yeah, for the obvious reasons, but on New Year's Eve my love overflows for them!  It's the BEST-EVER food day of the year!!!  My brother-in-law Kevin is the mastermind, well actually the masterCHEF, behind the delicious end to my year.   He prepares a full-blown Thanksgiving dinner for all of us every year as our family New Year's tradition!  Ginger and Kevin not only host this fantastic party..but they take that "the holidays are over blues" out of the equation by allowing us to look forward to this fun night every year.  

The boys are always so excited for this party, too, because it's a their house and they are like mini-hosts.  We play games, eat delicious food and toast at midnight!  And our favorite part of the evening (besides the food of course) is our White Elephant gift's seriously so fun! 

It's one of my favorite days of the year.  I'm going to share our menu with you...just to make you jealous...and hungry! :)

Baked ham (moist and delish!)
Mashed potatoes and gravy (soooo creamy!)
Mashed butternut squash (best thing ever!)
Corn casserole (you NEED to try this!)
Green bean casserole (yumm)
Fresh rolls (hot bunnns!)
Stuffing (duh...of course!)

For dessert:
Pumpkin bars (from scratch!!!)  

I can't wait for our next December 31st......
