Healthy, versatile soup makes it easy to eat more vegetables

How are those New Year’s resolutions going? Like most folks, I’ve resolved to eat more vegetables in the new year. I’d like to share an appetizing idea that’s making my goal much easier. Each weekend I’ll make one big pot of Very Versatile Vegetable Soup to enjoy for lunch the entire week.

Mimosa bar lets you mix with guests

Let’s end the year on a high note with a lovely, low-stress cocktail party for New Year’s Eve, shall we? As the host, you’re relieved of the expense and effort of providing a full meal. A selection of hors d’oeuvres allows guests to nibble and nosh throughout the evening as they wish. And you can limit the time to a few hours without looking like a Grinch. For a party lasting until the midnight toast, you’ll want to start no earlier than 8 p.m.
