HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE EVE

I can’t think of a better way to spend New Year’s Eve eve than with special friends.  That’s right it that time of year again, tonight we hosted our annual New Year’s Eve eve party and it was better than last year!! We celebrate New Year’s Eve on the 30th of December, the night -before-“the night”.  We blast the Karaoke machine, “load” the gummy bears & put on our cute outfits -all in good fun & lots of  laughter, memories…un-forgetable moments.

New Year’s Eve Eve party is a tradition that we started last year; we all have our own families and young kids, so New Year’s Eve needs to be celebrated early.  Its way easier to find a babysitter & we get to party twice -any excuse for a party, am I right? Read on and check out our little party…

I kept the food table decor very simple this year, went with black, whites and touches of gold/silver here and there. Everyone brought an appetizer to share and we got the party started.

BRIE CHEESE WITH A PECAN CARAMEL TOPPING

I wanted to share this amazing recipe with ya’ll. Not only is it really simple to make, its delicious and so beautiful on a platter.  You can make it 10 minutes before your party starts! Of course make sure you have all of  your Ingredients…

Ingredients:
1/2 cup  brown sugar lightly packed
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 Cup of pecan halves, roughly chopped
1 (one) 3-inch round, Brie cheese
Preparation:
Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract, salt and butter in a small, saucepan set over medium heat. Stir mixture until it comes to a boil. Boil gently, without stirring, for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and quickly whisk in baking soda. Add the pecans until mixture begins to set, about 30 seconds.
Working quickly, mound warm nut mixture on top of Brie and let caramel cascade down sides of cheese.
Thats it! just like that, you have a delicious appetizer !

OUR FRIENDS

Wherever you are doing life at – make sure you do life in community. Build and work on meeting, finding and growing friendships & relationships. Your tribe is the group of people who will be there for you in the good times in life; but more importantly in the bad times. We all know that life brings its ups and down, the good times, the challenging times, time of celebration & times of mourning -find the group who will walk with you in all seasons.

I can tell you that we have faced challenges together, we have hurt & forgiven, laughed & cried, mourned & celebrated, built & demolished, swung from trees, cleaned each others floors, shared meals &  rides, survived POOPY situations together…and we are still here celebrating life together.
