It's time to host my annual Bunco event. My Bunco group has themes each month, though after playing for 12-14 years, it's tough to be creative and find themes that haven't been used in the past.
I have a vague idea of what I want to do for a theme but can't come up with any great ideas for food. I moved to a new house last July (after being in my old house for 20 years)...and this will be the first time the majority of the group has been here. Since it's also the new year, I really want to use a theme that is based on "New"....new year, new beginnings, new home, new fill-in-the-blank.
I always get great ideas from the BB (and, yes, I always give you guys credit!!!), so I'm back looking for suggestions. Ideas so far:
* Recipes that use the word "New" (I had a New England Bunco last January so I've already served New England Clam Chowder).
* Recipes out of brand new cookbooks (I have SEVERAL new ones including CL Annual 2009, Shirley Corriher's "Bakewise", Ellie Krieger, and Eating Well Comfort Food.)
* Recipes I've never made in the past so they're new to me.
I've tried to search on recipes with the word "New" in the title, but that's evidently impossible.
As far as the type of food, I'm pretty flexible. I can go with heavy appetizers, or entree and sides, or however I want to put things together.
What kind of "NEW" ideas will be suggested?????
