Hey DivaGals! New Year 2016 is less than 24 hours away! It’s a great time to reflect on the past, and plan what to do for the next 365 days!
Many of us DivaGals are staying in to ring in the New Year at midnight! And here’s some of the things we plan to do ΓÇô and you can too!
If you are entertaining this new year’s eve the first thing you want to do is minimize the stress of cooking multiple dishes. One of our favorite standbys is Chicken Tiki Masala from┬á Crazy Cuisine which can be served over rice. Your guests will never believe that its a frozen dinner. The chicken is all white might organically sourced and the rice is cooked to perfection.
How about Baked Potatoes? Roast your potatoes and offer up a variety of toppings in attractive dishes or cups. We like sour cream, cheese, butter, onion, parmesan, chives, mushrooms, sea salt etc … get creative! Or to keep it oven-easy breezy, go for Saffron Road‘s delicious hot appetizers which toast up in 10 to 15 minutes.
If you are looking for something hearty, go for a savory sauce over noodles. Fishpeople offers a variety of chef inspired meals that include soups and sauces that are ideal for rice noddles or regular pasta.
Last but not least offer up a great wine. Since it’s New Year’s, break open some champagne. We recommend Anna Codorniu Brut or the Cote Mas Rose, “a lovely pink with delicate and persistent bubbles,”┬á┬áavailable for under $20. We also fell in love with the Ferrari Wines‘ selection of sparkling wines. Incidentally Ferrari was selected by Wine Enthusiast Magazine as the European winery of the year, and when you taste their brut you will understand why! Nicely priced at under $30.
Watch Dick Clark’s New YearΓÇÖs RockinΓÇÖ Eve┬áto see Wiz Khalifa and Demi Lovato perform live in Times Square, and OMI perform his hits “Cheerleader” and “Hula Hoop” at the Billboard Hollywood Party. The festivities start at 8 p.m. on ABC!
Have kids that need to go to bed earlier than midnight? Netflix is offering kid-friendly countdowns, hosted by the likes of Puffin RockΓÇÖs Oona and Baba, the Care Bears & Cousins, Inspector Gadget, King Julien and Mr. Peabody and Sherman. Your kids select who they want to do the countdown, and it’s on when you need it to be!
THE PLAN (FOR 2016!)
Start your new life with a vision ΓÇô a Vision Board! Stack up some sturdy cardboard, a stack of magazines you don’t mind cutting up, scissors, glue sticks and your unbrindled imagination.

Happy New Year 2016 DivaGals!
