Great grocery store find and NYE menu

Rick and I are spending our first New Year's Eve since we've been together in tonight, no party's no fancy restaurants, no friends- just me and him and our comfy home. We decided to make a 'fancy' meal and relish in the snooki ball drop on MTV lol. I searched all morning for a recipe that called out to me. I was craving all sorts of things, not things that necessarily go together. So here is our menu for tonight with clicky links to the actual recipes:

Italian Wedding Soup
Flank Steak with Balsamic Reduction
Parmesan Risotto

Breakfast tomorrow is:

Bacon and Cheese Quiche

Not all is 'diet-friendly' but I'm sure with our substitutions, it will be much healthier then anything we would have eaten out at a restaurant. Also, for the flank steaks I found a great find at the grocery store without even looking! I found these perfectly portioned flank steaks that are exactly 100 calories, 3.5 gms of fat a piece!

I hope everyone has an amazing New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! Be safe, see you next year! xxoo


  1. I buy those steaks sometimes! They are pretty good! I do a surf and turf with them occasionally! Your meal sounds amazing!!

  2. Happy New Year...thanks again for coordinating the Winter Challenge...

  3. Happy New Year!!!! Your night sounds great :o)

  4. Ironically this is the first time in a few years where we went out for new years. We had a blast, but totally get how great staying in can be too. Sounds like a yummy menu.
