New Year's Eve Dinner at Home

Growing up, one of the practices or superstitions we always hear is having round fruits at the table to welcome the New Year. I remember we will always have grapes, oranges, apples, among others, at our table alongside the usual Media Noche (New Year's Eve Dinner).

Hubby said we should continue the tradition by having round or circular things at our table. It doesn't have to be fruits that we might not eat and might just throw by the end of the week.

Christmas Eve dinner is my family's "big" celebration, so I always struggle to prepare to welcome the New Year. Below is a quick summary of what we did since getting married:
  • To greet 2018, we just ordered Domino's Pizza and Timbits
  • To ring in 2019, we stayed in Pan Pacific Hotel in Downtown Vancouver and watched the fireworks.
  • To start 2020, we did nothing.
  • To welcome 2021, we ordered savoury pies, donuts, and Filipino round snacks.
Hubby and I searched for circular or round food the last couple of days and decided to do "breakfast for dinner." So we went to the grocery yesterday and got pancake mix, frozen waffles, bagels, bananas, among other round things that we can find, including chicken balls.

Our menu for tonight includes:
  • Blueberry Bagel
  • Chicken balls and Waffles
  • Pancake with sliced bananas and Nutella
Breakfast for New Year's Eve Dinner

I love the Chicken Balls. Good job, President's Choice.

Happy New Year! May 2022 be a kinder and more blessed year for all of us. Cheers to more food adventures and hopefully travel. Stay kind, healthy, and safe.
