hot pot and new year's eve recap...

Before I completely say goodbye to 2014, I wanted to share a few photos of how we closed the year out and welcomed in 2015.  On New Year's Eve last week, we hosted a small group of friends and family to just hang out and catch up.

The last couple of years we have done a fondue dinner for New Year's Eve but since we had some small children coming over, we opted for Chinese hot pot instead.  The hot pot dinner was a light, healthy, and clean offset to all the heavier holiday meals and desserts we had had the week before.  Plus, it is relatively easy to prepare and is fun in a group setting.  

 




The evening was low key but it was nice to stay in and not pay a fortune to hang out in a crowded restaurant or bar.  Plus, this way, Tater and Panda could join in on the fun too!
